Thank you for enlightening me on that. How were they allowed to get control of the media?
The same way they've taken over major corporations, with Soros money through stockholders and leveraged buyouts.
Yes, the left will stop at nothing in their pursuit of total control.

That makes sense however the owners should be able to steer their media companies in the direction they want it to go. The owners do not necessarily come from the liberal areas. It seems like conservatives in politics would want conservatives with money to control the media.
It's not that simple. The left predominantly all of the media with the exception of News Corporation, the very people that push leftist RINO down our throats, which is why these Establishment RINO whores do as they're told and ignore the base.

This list comes via a bit of a conspiracy site, but the data is correct.

Maybe the owners are steering their companies where they want them to go.

Conservatives do not want their politicians to control the media, they want the media to tell the truth. The liberals do not want their politicians to control the media either, they want the media to control the politicians.

Spot on. From your link.

And the thing is, conservatives have a point. Study after study has shown that the mainstream media leans left, and that, as economists Tim Groseclose and Jeff Milyo have written, "an almost overwhelming fraction of journalists are liberal." The extent of this bias, of course, depends on what your definitions of liberal and conservative. And the media has other, arguably more important, biases: towards controversy and producing content that is profitable. But it is safe to say that the median journalist in America is to the left of the median American voter, and that this affects how the news is presented to the public.

Sorry, I accidentally bumped yours when I screwed up my own post.

Can you give me an example of a cable news agency owned by conservatives?

The article says that journalists consider their jobs to be prestigious. I heard recently however that the approval of the media is about as low as Congress around 10%. I don't see how they can consider that to be prestigious.

They're the bigger boil on a cows butt, so they think they carry more clout. :biggrin:

First, this is not new. They have just come out of the closet. Notice, these organizations are based out NYC and Washington, hotbeds of liberalism. They went to leftists universities and this is the result.

Scott Pelley did the CBS nightly news until recently and he is from Texas not the liberal areas and went to college there. While he was doing the news, they were at least as biased and anti-Trump as the other networks. That suggests that the owners have more clout then the journalists.

What planet have you been living on if the bosses having more clout than the owners is a revelation?

I actually replied to the wrong message. I should have replied to Solar's reply #17 (see above) which states the following:

"But it is safe to say that the median journalist in America is to the left of the median American voter, and that this affects how the news is presented to the public."

They better be.  You have to be a Marxist to get a job with a news organization -- with the exception of a very, very few.  With that said, if we know their politics, then journalistic ethics are out the window anyway.  We shouldn't have any idea how a journalist leans.

Taxed is correct, they only hire like minded leftists.
