Media = Corporations = Government = Press = Media
quote:Karl may be presuming
More empty rhetoric, more broadband lip service, and more government policy dictated almost-exclusively by the nation's wealthiest carriers -- all while the press nods dumbly without asking any real questions and the public engages in hollow partisan debate.
that the Press, the Government and Corporations
are NOT different facets of the same power structure.
I'm not sure why Karl or anyone else would make that assumption.
In other news:
I seem to remember there were people who believed Pres Bush's promise about a Manned Mission to Mars inside of a decade. Just as then there are some folks who'd believe an implied broadband promise from Pres Obama now.
People believe what they decide to believe; reality is optional to so very many of them.
What can you do?
Any Goal that is Driven by Animosity, is Empowered through Deceit.

.. did you catch the part where he talks about the Sputnik moment and all? ..yet he's pretty much killing NASA. The space program has landed us MANY of our innovations going on for the past several decades.. it's why we HAVE cable and satellite TV.. it's WHY we have little things in our cars telling us where to take that left turn.. and it's why we have the ability to predict weather, and even some of our advances in health care. We owe a LOT to that program, and he thinks its not worth while, and then bases much of his feel-good statements on it.
The man is an idiot.
Just like the conditions of the Comcast/NBC merger happening as a matter of fact anyway, so will many of the things Nobama promised would happen last night - and he'll sit back and take the credit when they happen on their own naturally.
Obama and Queen Pelosi and the rest spent the last two years writing into the THE biggest tax reform in history, and called it health care reform,.. WAY out-did GW in spending in his 8 years, in just 2.. and continues to push this country into ruin.. and he sits there last night telling everyone how he's going to fix it..
... only instead of "spending".. we're now "investing".. funny, still, 82% of Americans on all sides of the political spectrum see that "investing" really is nothing more than more spending.
