    You’re a lunatic, pewestlake. You suppose that the average person can’t make up their own mind in the face of this TV and radio inundation.

    That’s absurd. It annoys most people. Their minds are already made up.

    So the wealthy help support the media. Its a beautiful thing.

      When you open your remarks with an unnecessary insult, it’s hard to take anything else you say seriously. But just for argument’s sake…

      Most hard-working Americans are too busy earning a paycheck, raising kids, caring for aging parents and filling what little free time they have with hobbies and must-see TV to pay attention to whether or not the deluge of political and corporate propaganda they’re subjected to is based on any semblance of truth. People also change their minds, especially when presented with what they know to be factually true. Truth in advertising used to be a thing in America. Would be nice to have it back.

      The wealthy don’t just support the media, they own the media. But far too many of them don’t support the country, doing everything they can to take tax dollars (in the form of subsidies) for their corporations while avoiding paying taxes (including off-shoring profits and accounts) needed for the basic upkeep of the national infrastructure that made them rich in the first place.

      You’re entitled to your opinion but further ad hominem attacks will not be tolerated.
