It seems as though, we are told every day that the “mainstream” media is dominating the air waves with “fake news.”
Well, I observed what was on radio and television. On the local radio stations, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck are on all day. They repeat over and over how they think the “left” is wrong and evil and how the “right” is right and sacred. They subscribe the left to Democrats and the right to Republicans and Donald Trump.
I am not taking sides in this letter, we all know that both sides have issues and faults. However, I do want to point out that the three men that I mentioned above, along with Fox news, are definitely on the right. So therefore the notion that the mainstream media is controlling the conversation is not true. Rush Limbaugh is working under a $400-million contract and Sean Hannity made $36 million last year. Are they motivated by money or truth? They are bad for America because they purposefully try to make people angry and promote division.
The people who criticize the mainstream media have become the mainstream media.
