Corporate Media Hostile to Democracy

When Mark Greene ran for Secretary of State, earlier this year, the Seattle Times greeted the opening of the candidate filings with outright open bias. They listed the names of Reed and Osgood as candidates, but left off Greene and another candidate named Montgomery. Their pre-primary editorial about the candidates also listed their preferred candidates, Reed and Osgood, but not the others. They did not even list the results of the election for every candidate. This is the same newspaper that endorsed George Bush for president in 2000. Their endorsement worked: we now have the Bush Regime.

This Corporate Mainstream News Media is as arrogant, anti-commoner and imperialistic-minded as Bush and Cheney, and just as hostile to democracy and constitutional norms. Which is why independents and third party candidates will never receive unbiased coverage or any at all in the corporate media. The CMNM has defended Bush and Cheney to the hilt and have never questioned them about their high crimes and misdemeanors.
