A State Run Media

We no longer live in a country that has free press. Instead, we live in a mainstream Marxist State Run media. The mainstream media is run by leftist who embrace and promote Marxist socialist reforms. CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox News.

A blind man can turn on the news and hear the political propaganda that comes out of the mouths of the puppet anchors who are no more journalists than the crazy guy on the street yelling that the world is coming to an end. In fact, that crazy guy probably has more sense than a news anchor. All anchors and journalist of the mainstream so called free press are nothing more than propaganda machines used to churn out the Socialist Democratic ideas and shove them down your throats.

The mass media are, in classical Marxist terms, a 'means of production' which in capitalist society are in the ownership of the ruling class. According to the classical Marxist position, the mass media simply disseminate the ideas and world views of the ruling class, and deny or defuse alternative ideas. This is very much in accord with Marx's argument that:

The class which has the means of material production at its disposal has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. (Marx & Engels: The German Ideology, cited in Curran et al. 1982: 22).

According to this stance, the mass media functioned to produce 'false consciousness' in the working-classes. This leads to an extreme stance whereby media products are seen as monolithic expressions of ruling class values, which ignores any diversity of values within the ruling class and within the media, and the possibility of oppositional readings by media audiences. -Daniel Chandler

Meaning in other words, the government whether it promotes good or bad policies is always in the right and the Marxist media has the responsibility of spinning any failures or tragic events that occurred in government to a positive side to make the government look good in the public's eye.

The mainstream media has downplayed everything that the Obama administration has done that has been detrimental to this nation either through cover-ups or slight mentions. We have seen this done recently with the Iran deal, Fast and Furious, the IRS Scandal, Gun Control propaganda, Benghazi, the Arab Spring debacle, the Iraq situation, the totalitarian executive orders, you can almost name any scandal through the Obama administration and I can show you a hundred news articles through different mainstream sources trying to spin it positively towards the leftist Marxist administration. 

Any opposition to the current Socialist Democratic government is met with ridicule and disdain. The smearing that is being done by the media for any opposing Presidential Candidate is a wake-up call for media bias. The same media bias that occurred in the 2008 elections and 2012 elections. That is a state-run media.

Here is a short story about the Soviet Union during the space race and the state-run media's role. Yuri Gagarin (first man in space) and Vladimir Komarov both famed Cosmonauts went toe to toe with Leonid Brezhnev the Premier of the Soviet Union. Gagarin and Komarov were furious at the incompetence of the Soyuz project. The project had over 200 system malfunctions during testing and was unfit to be used in any mission. Both Gagarin and Komarov went to the press and even sent a letter to Brezhnev telling him how disastrous it would be if they launched without addressing the issues. Both Brezhnev and the media ignored them. 

On the 24th of April 1967 Vladimir Komarov smacked 600 miles per hour into the earth with a failed Soyuz spacecraft killing him instantly. The Soviet's told Komarov's wife and the Soviet public that the mission was a success, the craft landed safely, and the Komarov died on the bus ride back to Moscow. Gagarin after the incident went toe to toe with the state media to plea for the truth to be released. Brezhnev was furious at Gagarin but reluctantly conceded to Gagarin and told a half truth about Komarov's flight to the press. Brezhnev never forgot the embarrassment to him and the government brought on by Gagarin. In 1968 Yuri Gagarin the first man in space was silenced by the KGB due to them tampering with his MIG-15 on his first flight as a reinstated test pilot. The Russian government to this day refuses to open any investigations into Gagarin's death.

This is where we are headed with a state-run media. Lies upon half truths towards a positive government with no accountability.
