    Default Why don't wealthy patriots buy & purge progressive "news" outlets?

    Since the corrupt media is the biggest road block to saving our country. Why don't wealthy conservatives just buy up the socialist networks & replace the scumbags there now with honest truthtellers?

    Where would Barry be without the constant propaganda spewed out by his cheerleaders on MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC , CNN, Etc?

    Buy them & purge the lying bastards out?

    You could turn the country around in a matter of months .

    Then use the news to expose the indoctrination going on in our school systems. Expose all of the communist pervert "professors" in our universities .

    Expose the Dem election fraud, on & on.

    Plenty of conservative billionares have the cash to do it.

    Why not?

    Probably because the MSM is so deeply rooted by other leftist groups and or countries with endless funds.It would be almost impossible to buy them out.

    Glen Beck is trying to do it through his own radio show, the blaze website and his own t.v. network.

    Been saying that for years. If the Repubs are to have a prayer of returning to power then they must buy a couple MSM networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN to make sure there's some equality of access to the American public. The Koch brothers supposedly are trying to buy the LA Times but they need to buy a television network.

    This is a really good topic I just had a discussion with a younger buck at work about this.

    But the media is a very powerful tool. It has been used to liberate nations or enslave them (1984 come to mind?). But that is the one job mentioned in the Bill of Rights. In reading the writings of our framers you will notice that they hated the media. It just goes to show how much forthought they had. Freedom of press, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion are all meant to be human rights but more importantly they are a backstop. Like the 2nd Amendment and the other 8 original amendments in the bill of rights they were the ultimate checks and balances. Not established to tell us what our rights are, but to tell the Government what they couldn't take from us.

    Now back to the topic, the fact that we can all clearly see the freedom of press is being surrendered willingly by its practitioners is a shame. The reason the framers hated the press was because the power they knew it possessed (the power to make or brake a nation as realized by the publishing of Common Sense by Thomas Paine) was enough to keep the government in check.

    The MSM has done a great job surrendering one of the most important liberties granted to a free people... The right to know the truth... When the government tries to feed me shit it is their job to call it for what it is, not convince me it's caviar and it's the best thing since pockets on jeans.

    Me beeing a free man, I have no problem calling shit what it is and I have no respect for those who will surrender essential liberties.

    And to all those who try to argue the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence were written at a different time and shouldn't apply to present times.. All I can give you is advice my old man gave me. He said "If you ever want to learn anything new, open an old book."

    I say the MSM companies should stay under the same ownership, those ownerships just need to wake up and smell the coffee because either they are intentionally surrendering their rights or they are ignorant. Either way causes more damage than any new ownership can fix.

    The msm is owned by a few extremely filthy rich crony corporatist douchebags who will only sell to their fellow douchebags of the same ilk.

    Both sides lie their asses off in the media. The problem is that media content is controlled by the owner of that particular media outlet. This means that no matter who owns that outlet the content will be slanted. There is not now, and probably hasn't been since media was invented, an unbiased nedia outlet.

    Mr Rock, I'm not quite sure you know how much this garbage costs. I don't believe that Bill Gates and Warren Buffet together could buy just Gannet. This trash is so entrenched, it will take blood.

    Great reply Abukai, as usual.

    Hunter, unfortunately I fear you are correct. It will take blood to change anything at all back to what the Framer's intended.
