    By getting rid of it?? Seriously though the media sucks donkey cocks, it's all opinion based now with very little in the way of actual reporting of the news. Once the news became a for profit organization it all went down hill.

    Clearly state funded media is the way to go.

    Yeah because that works so well for china, no I am not saying that. But I would say that fox news proves every day that corporate funded media isn't any better.

    Do you think the other major networks are any better than FoxNews? If so, you can't see through your own biased views. Biased? Fine with me. But don't be blinded by it. That just makes you a dummy.

    No, FoxNews does not prove that corporate funded media is no better than Chinese media. Get real. Corporate funded media is only like a zillion times better than government media. And this is coming from someone who hates the media with a passion. At least with corporate media you have multiple slanted viewpoints to choose from, which beats the **** out of only having one slanted viewpoint.

    No I'm not saying any one version of bullshit is any better than another. And having multiple bullshits to choose from rather than one?? Not sure how to answer that one. You have to admit though that network news before it became a profit industry was better.

    Pat, I feel like your rants would be better if you stuck to one or two issues in them, but then at the end there's a bit about divorce, car theft etc that kinda undermines an otherwise cohesive, legitimate rant.

    And speaking of USA and our ignorance and apathy (How do you define ignorance and apathy? I don't know and I don't care!)
    I have noticed lots of people who don't get popular support play what I call the "sheep card".

    Variations include people:
    Are asleep
    Ignorant
    Distracted
    Being lied to
    Uneducated

    It's possible people understand just fine and don't agree.
