Do some think many know more than they ought to?

If they can get you asking the wrong questions,
they don't have to worry about answers.

Thomas Pynchon

Is the delivery of consumers to merchants
the objective of for-profit television?

Should news stories conceal correlations
to advertiser or parent company profit?

It is difficult to get a man to understand something
when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

Upton Sinclair

Does freedom of the press include what advertisers object to?

Why would some mainstream media personalities
criticize policy positions of some,
while receiving undisclosed and/or indirect compensation
from the advocating side of the Obama/Republican tax cut deal?

If the top brass of all the media companies didn't want actual taxation numbers reported, could they have pulled it off?

Has our news media been compromised?
