Well, it's a little more involved than that. The ownership isn't Liberal-Progressive, but the claims made from Europeans about the right wing nature of the U.S. media centre around Republican ownership elements and ignore management. That's why (in another thread) I assert that the GOP needs to freeze out the mainstream media and let the feckers starve. They'll wail and shout about how unfair it is (Bush never cut the NYT off, and Pinch was practising open sedition), but when they start having to pay FOX for footage they'll knock off the partisan sandbagging toot suite. Why not? Furthermore, why are universities untaxed? The original reason was that they were teaching clergy, but what excuse do they have now? It won't, and that's because of what I stated earlier about the corrupt nature of the media. As THE WON states, he believes in redistribution. The difference is, he believes in doing it at the point of a gun. So your idea only works when there's not punitive taxation already in play. Ya know, it stuns me that Lefitsts don't recognize Rush is a comedian. The only way I can imagine someone being so stupid to not "get" that is to fail basic research. Like when The Onion is cited as if it's not parody. I'm not fast enough for Twitter, but that's where all the cool conservatives hang out now. "The presidentâ€™s social-media experts have had a tough time of it lately. Whenever they come up with a great Twitter hashtag that they think is going to change the conversation â€” #IStandWithObama, #LowerUnderObama, #ILikeObamacare, etc. â€” those meddling teabaggers ruin it. They use those hashtags to mock and deride Obama, instead of worshipping him as is his due. Theyâ€™re mean!"
