The news media loves billionaires
The rest of us? Not so much
Is our Fourth Estate quaint and obsolete?
The issue that face real people are rarely covered in the news media, but the news media sure does a great job of representing the interests of the 1%.
This was best exemplified by the words of conservative punit George Will: “Surely in a democracy, it’s time for us to quit being sentimental and say the question we settle in an election is not whether elites shall rule, but which elites…”
The media needs to focus on the needs of the working people of this country. Instead they act as the “gatekeeper of mass consciousness”, driving the agenda of the 1%.
