In Noam Chomsky’s Book Manufacturing Consent the author discusses how the concentration of media ownership can narrow or exclude any rational discussion about economic policies. Chomsky in his book says “Large corporate advertisers…will rarely sponsor programs that engage in serious criticisms of corporate activities, such as the problem of environmental degradation, the workings of the military-industrial complex, or corporate support of and benefits from Third World tyrannies (Chomsky, 1992).” …

The United States promotes itself as a full functioning democracy that believes in fairness, equal opportunity, and justice for all. However, when you see how the interests and desires of the bottom 90% have no influence in our political system, this country, one of the wealthiest in the world, functions more like an oligarchy. According to information leaked from the IRS to ProPublica, the wealthiest individuals are laughing all the way to the bank as you pay a higher tax rate than them.

“This is an existential threat”

Megafires from Seattle to Los Angeles choke the San Francisco skyline with an eerie orange glow. Wired

In 2015, five Democratic presidential candidates were asked about national security. Many gave vague standard bull shit answers about foreign policy, except one person. Climate change is an existential threat the 74 year old Democratic socialist from Vermont said to thunderous applause at the debate. “The scientific community is telling us that if we do not address the global crisis of climate change, transform our energy system away from fossil fuels…the planet we are going to be leaving our kids and grandkids may not be habitable.” Five years later Sanders was again sounding the alarm…

With 18 million more Americans on unemployment insurance than last year, you’d think the White House would have their back. Instead Joe Biden said “go back to your low wage job or else". Agreeing with Mitch McConnell that unemployment insurance leads to welfare queens. The Biden administration seems stuck in the 1990s ideology where welfare queens are real (like the tooth fairy), people hate government programs, Wall Street is popular, and Democrats have no real leverage. In reality they do, they just don’t want to use it.

What living in Palestine Feels like

You wake up on a bright and sunny morning. You and your wife have a warm cup of coffee in your apartment building discussing your day. The telephone rings, you walk over and pick it up. It’s the Israeli forces who tell you coldly “You have one hour to evacuate the building [click].” You and two hundred others in the complex are gripped with fear and begin to panic.

Evidence shows former Labour Leader was never given fair coverage despite his policies being popular by the British public.

As documented in my previous report on media bias in the United States, this was also well documented against another figure who went from being congratulated to being scorned in about three years. Ever since Jeremy Corbyn won the leadership contest in September 2015 there was a concerted effort by the three corporations who owned 90% of the British media to scorn, ridicule, fear monger, and tarnish his public image. While there were other factors like the Blairites of the Labour…

The Nevada Culinary Union with it’s 60,000 members woke up bright and early and walked into work to see flyers provided by the leadership outlining healthcare plans of six Democratic Presidential candidates.
