What does the media ever say to bring us together? Nothing. You don't have to be a genius to see it.
Right. They're needed though, because they're one conservative voice -vs- every other network. People would only get one side of the bullshit story without them. Back when I was a child, they all just reported facts and left us to form our own opinions. Now they try to convince us as to why they're right and the other side is wrong. There is no unbiased reporting. They like to get us all riled up so that we keep watching. Dividing the people makes them money.
The media went downhill right after the 'entertainment' companies bought them years ago.
I don't know if their business model includes a profit motive or not. Left wing newspapers have folded up their tents across the country. Magazines are for the most part "online". MSNBC has about 12 viewers, CNN - 53 - but they carry on.
I'm not sure what their deal is, but it appears that the left and the media are working to destroy conservatism in America.
And if there isn't hate, the media will generate it.
