Here is my other rebuttal he insisted I didn't have:-
86% of journalist donations going to the Democratic Party.
So something completely irrelevant to who controls the media then, yes?
Over time the amount of media merging has increased and the number of media outlets has increased. As a result, fewer companies now own more media outlets, increasing the concentration of ownership. In 1983, 90% of US media was controlled by 50 companies; as of 2011, 90% was controlled by just 6 companies and in 2017 the number was 5.
Let's just consider what this sentence means:-
In 1983, 90% of US media was controlled by 50 companies; as of 2011, 90% was controlled by just 6 companies and in 2017 the number was 5.
It means the problem with corporate bias in the media first analysed and reported by Herman and Chomsky in the 1980s is TEN TIMES worse today than it was then.
Here is the rebuttal Brontoraptor insisted I didn't have:-
Is that why you banned me and then continued trying to argue with someone you were completely aware was unable to respond?
Ahahahaha! You delusional little moron.
What you did is make the false claim that the media is a "left wing complex", despite the completely obvious fact that it is owned by wealthy corporations and well known right wing nutcases like Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers. When I disproved your outrageous populist myth-building by quoting the University of Michigan website, you spammed a random story about journalists donating to Hillary Clinton's campaign. Hence, you lied, you were proved to be lying, and instead of admitting it you changed the subject.
The research shows that you are wrong:-
Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky in their 1988 book Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media proposed a propaganda model to explain systematic biases of U.S. media as a consequence of the pressure to create a stable and profitable business. In this view, corporate interests create five filters that bias news in their favor.
Isn't it strange how that study from the 1980s is still featured prominently on the Wikipedia page about US media bias in 2019, huh buddy? I mean, surely we can just ignore it, right? I mean, it's from the 1980s!!!!
LOL! Keep shilling away, my little weasel.
