While we, as Democrats, feel we have good information to desseminate, we cannot be in media because we do not pay media and corporate media is doing the bidding of the people with cash. We may have the most people behind us but that is not what capitalism values. When I hear people say during the radio program "why don't we hear from the Democrats?" I don't think there is a clear understanding of the dynamic here.

iheart media a right wing company owns a thousand radio startions coast to coast. Six Corporate media empires , owned by the richest Americans in the country, control 90% of everything Americans see, hear or read daily. Fox news tier one cable channel reaches 100 million American homes daily . Liberalism is but a faint cry in the media wilderness. Rich liberals do nothing but pay lip service, while left wing radio and news outlets have to go hat in hand and beg for donations.

The mainstream media is owned and operated by the 1%. You hear what they want you to hear. You do not hear what they do not want you to hear. A lot of people cannot figure that out. They can lie to you and Republicans like it.
