Nope.  They're going to continue being the left's PR machine.
It's a good thing we still have alternatives!

Former President William "Bill" Jefferson Clinton signed the Telecommunications Act to have it become law that decreased media competitivenesses, and that resulted of some medias that became (pseudo)conglomerates, and some medias became more neoliberal or more liberal as a "thank you" to him for that.

And now, there aren't really any media monopolies. There is in fact fierce competition for viewers.

National Socialist, Communist...

What differences do you see in practice?

The obvious answer is that National Socialism is inherently racist, in theory, communism is universal.  With NAZI's you know who the elites will be, you have to guess with the commies.

In practice, Communists simply target Believers as their favorite "others" to eliminate rather than people of other races, but, communism in practice hasn't been any less racist that any other authoritarian system, it's just that National Socialism in it's German iteration was very racist, and homophobic, and anti-religious.

It's unfortunate that "progressives", in dreaming about ways to improve the world all too often come up with the idea to scapegoat some group of 'others' that they claim is ruining things for everybody. It's a real danger and a good reason not to try to plan ways to improve the world through government power. Shocked

This news from a media outlet not controlled by The Left:

https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/2573708000000-federal-spe...

It's depressing news.

So is this, from another non-leftist source:

Liberals are attracted to media jobs more than conservatives and over the years the news rooms came to be dominated by liberals as a result. 


I would even expand upon this thought and say that Liberals tend to gravitate to more creative jobs. Jobs where they can mold things to their own vision instead of reality.  I mean think about it, most people on the right tend to gravitate to jobs where there are hard facts, things that are what they are and no room for interpretation (i.e. construction).  Used to be that fish and game, forest service, etc was full of conservatives, now they are being overrun with liberals.
