You want to change it - then be informed, stop watching news that just agrees with your position, hold the news to a higher standard and be informed.

Blaming Obama is not true nor does it solve the problem.
Where do you get your news / information ......... the " View " ?

Robert Welch 1958 & The John Birch Society.

Running with the theme of smaller government, I'm all for it too, but strategically decided, let's listen to history of the what in my youth I thought of as radical but with age comes wisdom and I'm liking his ideas much more today!

Oh, so the news media isn't a corporation? All you can do is try and make fun of people. Typically that's the response when you don't have a good answer and someone challenges your worldview. Instead of self reflecting and broadening your understanding you insult the person and continue to live in your own echo chamber.

NBC = Comcast = public traded company
CNN = Turner = Warner = AT&T = publicly traded company
ABC = Disney = publicly traded company
MSNBC = NBC = Comcast = publicly traded company

So the companies are public stocks, not "owned by the left". In fact you can buy stock and be part owner.

You can buy stock in any company, but that doesn't mean you can make decisions on how it's run. Unless you have a majority share or are on the board of directors. Those are the people we're talking about

If the house fails in their commitment, the next leverage point is on March 1st when the national debt limit is frozen!!

See the footnote on TABLE III-C - Debt Subject to Limit

That doesn't invalidate my point. They are still companies who have to answer to investors and are expected to make money. They are going to cater to their audience to try and drive up their profits to bring up their stock price. They are providing a service that is being demanded by their customers. Its pretty simple - its market economics. No black helicopter, left wing propaganda bullsh!t that people like to claim. If you are a free market proponent, then you can't complain. They are a companies that are driven by market forces. You don't like it, be informed, demand higher standards, and consume media that is better quality.

Don't just live in your own echo chamber.

On a side note - "Another one bites the dust, and another one down, and another one down..."

Roger Stone indicted and arrested.

Let's see -
6 or 7 Trump cronies have plead guilty

I have a feeling this is one of the most corrupt administrations in a long time. Nixon was bad, but this is crazy!

And CNN just happened to be hanging around his front yard at 5:00am to catch it live. Yeah he had some rotten people early on, but if they turned the full power of the government loose on anyone they'd have more indictments than that. They started an investigation searching for a crime, not how it's supposed to work in the USA. What about the last administration running guns to Mexican drug cartels? Or the IRS targeting right wing groups? Or the Clinton's destroying evidence?

Six corporations own/run 90% of the media, Fox is the ONLY news outlet that makes an attempt at being fair and balanced. Granted their opinion shows are right leaning but their hard news is fair. You can't say that about any other source. The Blaze's business model is the truth without agenda, so of course Microsoft gives them a red shield while they give buzzfeed, cnn, msnbs and others a green check. The MSM outlets are still pushing the narrative that the HS kids were wrong and have yet to even mention the black Hebrew Israelite's who were shouting racist slurs against the native Americans and the white kids, they were the one's who started the whole thing. They didn't even get a mention in the story, Phillips the so called victim is a professional left wing activist who saw a shot at air time so he took his drum and got right in that kid's face. Then when he was interviewed his story was 100% lies and he still hasn't received one bit of push back. Right leaning voices are routinely deplatformed from social media while hate groups like antifa, Farakan, muslim groups etc. are honored of FB and twitter, they can make the most hateful threats without consequence. That's also while you may have noticed there aren't many leftist opinions on this site, we found our own "safe place" here.

And we can't blame Obama? He spent 8 years driving wedges into every crack in the fabric of our society, if you didn't see that then you're a leftist and didn't want to see it. We were so severely divided 5 years ago that I wanted to design a Divided States of America flag. Everyone on the right felt it. He worked to divide us along the lines of black/white, rich/poor, gay/straight, man/woman, left/right, patriot/unpatriotic, gun owners/gun haters, believer's atheists, etc. If there was a crack he exploited it. The left is all about identity politics, just look at the BS like toxic masculinity, and white privilege! If you disagreed with Obama's (or their) policies you were instantly labeled a racist. The dem party still won't condemn antifa, BDS or Farakan, and while just recently "officially" broke ties with the hateful women's march, some congresswomen still showed up over the weekend. And they glory in pictures with Louis Farakan and Al Sharpton two of the biggest racist with a microphone.
