WNEM & Koch Bros & Right Wing Local News

Post by autolab » Thu Dec 07, 2017 6:44 am

So now, WNEM's parent company Meredith is buying Time Inc. by partnering with the conservative Koch Brothers: http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/26/media/m ... index.html

Wonder what that will mean for TV5's editorial slant? Another local attempt to frame their news selection toward conservative issues and appease Trump voters is my guess.

In a related note, it appears that ABC and FOX are looking at a deal: http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/disney ... 202631508/

While the news properties will remain separate, I wouldn't be surprised if you start seeing some corporate "synergies".

Whatever happened to so-called liberal mainstream media? Not in mid-Michigan!

The media hasn't been "lib'rul" in ages. Now that both parties are essentially the same circle of crooks wearing different colors, "news" is BS on ALL channels anymore. I don't even watch news now. It's a waste of time.
I confirm all my information through a high, white whore's souse!
