The Seattle Times shilling your initiative…? Priceless

timesflyer

Seattle Times home subscribers found this helpful cheat sheet stuck to the front page of their Sunday edition, but when one of the initiative campaigns the Times opposes called to purchase something similar, they were told no, political advertisers can’t buy these sort of stickers, at any price.

It can only be given. Because ownership has its privileges.

Once again proving my point that it’s not bias that is the problem with modern media, but ownership. For as long as our media continues to be dominated by wealthy corporations and individuals, it will continue to largely reflect and serve their own selfish interests.

    You’re right, Fascist media firing Juan Williams for Blacking while Conservative is an outrage. I’ll hold my breath for your scathing critique……

    Juan Williams was just hired by Fox for a three million dollar, two-year deal. That is considerably more than NPR was paying him, and he doesn’t need to pretend to be a journalist anymore either.

    Spyder,

    Williams worked for NPR, the official mouthpiece of the DNC. He didn’t have to pretend to be a journalist there either. They just read off the talking points Tim Kaine sends them.

    And Willians is laughing all the way to the bank. How about you?

    AT this point, I think I’d rather own a $150 netbook than a $150,000,000 printing plant.
