SURVEY: Majority of whole U.S. political spectrum HATES corporate media.

Die corporate media, die! You are fading very fast.

The corporate media is one of the dead hands of the past on our sustainable future. Throw it off. It is totally unrequired. Seems the whole political spectrum hates the corporate media.

"As most news outlets are portraying the dead Ronald Reagan as
an iconic and heroic figure, the Pew Research Center has released a
survey that shows:

-- GOPers trust the major media organizations much less than Democrats. Only 15 to 17 percent of Republicans believe the network news shows are credible.

-- Even Fox News Channel is trusted by only 29 percent of Republicans.

-- CNN is trusted by 26 percent of Republicans.

-- About [ONLY!] a third of Democrats said they have faith in the networks.

-- [ONLY!] 45 percent of Democrats said they consider CNN credible.

-- Only 25% of Democrats considered Fox a trustworthy news source and only 29% of Republicans trust Fox either!

-- The Pew report notes, "Republicans have become more distrustful of virtually all major media outlets over the past four years, while Democratic evaluations of the news media have been mostly unchanged."

Even before the Berlin wall fell, the majority of citizens under the USSR knew they were being lied to and manipulated. Propaganda requires a good disguise and a healthy intermixing with the truth to go believed. In their hubris, the right-wing elites have gone too far. Of course, they think that the public college and basic school system could not possibly elevate the intelligence of the masses to a level to figure it out. Even the militia of Alexander The Great eventually recognized his madness and enrichment at their expense. Hopefully it does not require the downfall of America to achieve this epiphany.
