2. When wealthy white men who just happen to be conservative cranks do NOT own the airways.

Those concerned with news dictated by some kind of Big Brother gubermint haven't a problem with billionaire conservative cranks privatizing media and supporting their views and censoring all others.

Only a larger organization like government could ever tell them to open their doors to more diversity, since the 'free market' in communications has not proven to be the 'free marketplace of ideas.'

The function of business is to make money, not share its power or extend power. But big gubermint is bad and all regulations are evil.

Apply liberally to this post.

4. The sad thing is...

They truly believe their own BS as well. Just as smug and authoritative as they want to be and oh so clueless.

5. I'm not sure.

Sometimes I think they do believe what they are saying but then I realize they'd be too stupid to breathe if that were the case. They are given a script by the people who own them, their corporate overlords dictate everything. Including print media.
