Media Attack Cluster

Silencing Conservatives: An entire "Media Reform" movement has grown up around media issues. "Media Reform" in their usage means to take power from "corporate media" and give power to various claimants, such as "community broadcasters," "independent media," "media watchdogs," and others with the primary goal of removing conservative views from broadcast, Internet, and print media.

The irony is that virtually all these "reformers" are corporate executives, only of non-profit, tax-exempt corporations that enjoy the same immunities and privileges that for-profit corporations enjoy, plus exemption from income taxes - and some are themselves for-profit corporations, such as the far-left Utne Reader.
