The Liberal Media
I heard once that the liberal media is only as liberal as the conservative corporations that own it. Lets take a look at the facts, shall we?
Viacom owns: CBS, UPN, MTV, Showtime, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures, Blockbuster Video, BET, Simon and Schuster publishing, and Comedy Central.
Time Warner owns: CNN, AOL, HBO, Cinemax, The WB, Warner Bros. Pictures, Court TV, Warner Brothers, Time, Life, People,
and Warner Books.
Disney owns: Walt Disney Pictures, The Disney Channel, ABC television networks, ESPN, A&E, Lifetime, E!, Disney Radio Network (a.k.a. ABC Radio which offers the leftist commentary of both Focus on the Family and Sean Hannity), Miramax Pictures, and Touchstone Pictures.
General Electric owns: NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, USA, Bravo, Independent Film Channel, American Movie Classics, Telemundo, Universal Pictures, and Universal Studios.
News Corporation (owned by Rupert Murdoch) owns: Fox, Fox News, FX, 20th Century Fox, HarperCollins, The New York Post, TV Guide,
and Fox Searchlight Pictures.
What, then, after all this, is left (literally)? I am hard-pressed to name a channel not
owned by one of these media conglomerates. In fact, I had no idea the Murdoch owned TV Guide
until I looked it up just now. I’ll be canceling my subscription on Monday.
But the bigger question here is not so much who owns what as how much longer will the Left continue to take this shit lying down?
The left-leaning media allegation is beyond baseless and yet, when it’s hurled in our direction no one ever says, “Are you kidding me?” before listing the above facts on just exactly who owns what.
Can we please grow a pair, people?!
