With friends like these, who needs enemies?
By Jack E. Lohman
I wrote about it in February, but Mike McCabe, Executive Director of Wisconsin Democracy Campaign said it best on Sara Schulz’s radio show: our TV stations are a major part of the problem. (Mike is on the first hour… listen while you work.)
Political corruption is the number one reason America is in such dire financial straits, and most of the corruptive money filters directly to CNN and Fox and others for political ads. Why would they blow the whistle on our corrupt politicians and stop that flow of corrupt cash to their TV station???
They obviously wouldn’t and haven’t, but there’s another problem. If every time a corrupt politician were to appear on their shows, which is always, and the host were to nail them for their corruption, they’d soon have no politicians to interview!!!
Where in the hell are Fox and the other “values” stations on this issue of “honesty?”
The money originates with the Koch Brothers, passes through the politician, ends up in the media’s bank account, gets the politician re-elected, and the media buries the corruption.
Nice. And the politician keeps voting on legislation that increases his/her net worth (by typically 10-15% per year). How else would Nancy Peloci reach $35 million in net worth?
So by not disclosing this corruption and fraud upon the American public, we concentrate our ire away from the politicians that caused the economic crash. Good strategy folks!
