David Riesman Quote

“The media, far from being a conspiracy to dull the political sense of the people, could be viewed as a conspiracy to disguise the extent of political indifference.”

At least 90% of the media is run by liberals and can be viewed as sold out to Obama , the democratic party, and labour unions.

While I agree that the media is 'liberal,' it's slant is mostly 'statist globalism' under the thumb of the banking establishment with the Council on Foreign Relations having the most visible influence in the US. Even with all the hype of the last election, the majority of qualified voters do not participate in elections. George Bush certainly had the support of the media during his tenure of 'shock and awe' because war is big business for the media -- remember Desert Storm, it put CNN on the map. This whole liberal vs conservative stuff is just a distraction to keep the power over the people in the hands of a few. Believe me, the media could care less about the people -- they work for the establishment to further the subjugation of the people into perpetual debt, dependence, and fear.

Great comments above. I'm not sure that conspiracy covers the entire subject. Hard core devotees, believers, and otherwise devout patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land (world) are sought to fulfill all positions of the media. I believe most of the taking heads (electronic, in print, etc.) of the media believe in what they are propagating. The media has done a great job at dulling political senses of the people and, disguising the extent of political indifference.
