How did Liberals get control of the media?


Because you're mis-phrasing it.  The leftstream media is just dominated by people who are leftists.  They aren't "controlled" by the Democrats, they just are Democrats

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. 


Yes, fiscal conservatives want to go out and make money, not just (mis) represent and comment on what others are doing

I'm not sure why Liberals would be more attracted to jobs in the media. 

Hollywood used to be more conservative, but that changed over time.  I remember Charlton Heston saying that there were a lot of closet Conservatives in Hollywood.  Is it possible Liberals began a quiet campaign that disadvantaged those on the right trying to get media jobs?   


You don't get why leftists would be more interested in going into a job where they accomplish nothing on their own?  They just comment on the accomplishments of others?  Seriously?

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. 


National and socialist are different things.  There isn't anything that "national socialist" means that is different than "nationalistic" and "socialistic."

The Soviet union was hugely both.  Nazi, which was the socialist party of Germany was as well.  Left wingers like Nazis and socialists can afford to be racists.  In right capitalist governments, competition breeds out racism.  Only government can skew markets because only government can use guns to accomplish skewing the markets.

As a business owner, I dealt with only one color.  Green.  I was like the Montgomery Bus Company, which opposed rules forcing their best customers to stand or go to the back.  Capitalism does that

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.


Yep.  Leftists want jobs that don't earn a living.  So they vote for government to provide them with one.

It's no wonder that leftists in the media then defend government's ability to do so

This is probably a strong indication that "the left" doesn't completely control the media:

https://www.newser.com/story/275963/inquiry-its-canadian-genocide.html?utm_sourc...

From the article:

"We do know that thousands of Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual) have been lost to the Canadian genocide to date," per the leaked report."

I'm going to try to memorize and use "2SLGBTQQIA" whenever it seems appropriate... Smiley
