BOMBSHELL! The Lobbying Media Complex

THE NATION MAGAZINE/Sebastian Jones: The Lobbying-Media Complex

At Media Matters' we've repeatedly pointed out the media's inability to consistently identify the conflicts of interest or note-worthy connections of contributors and guests on various cable news outlets as well as those quoted in major newspapers as experts. Years' worth of examples of past Media Matters research on the subject can be found at the end of this post.

The Nation's Sebastian Jones has an incredible piece out this week detailing the results of a four month investigation which found that, "[s]ince 2007 at least seventy-five registered lobbyists, public relations representatives and corporate officials -- people paid by companies and trade groups to manage their public image and promote their financial and political interests -- have appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, CNBC and Fox Business Network with no disclosure of the corporate interests that had paid them."

Will Kurtz, others cover bombshell Nation story on "The Lobbying-Media Complex"?

The Military Media, part of the FAKE liberal media.

MSNBC repeatedly hosts McCaffrey to discuss Afghanistan without disclosing his conflict of interest

One of the components of the "liberal media": the military industrial complex. I'm always harping here, that the corporate owned mainstream media that pretends to be liberal actually serves 3 things: the wealthiest few, corporations, and the military industrial complex. The SHAM they perpetrate is getting you to believe it's liberal.

Pentagon Pundits

The Terror-Industrial Complex

Pentagon Pundits - Blinded by the Right

The "liberal media":

"DRILL, BABY, DRILL!!!" - but the actual PEOPLE don't want it!!! The "news" won't tell you this, though!!! That's because what the people want is in stark contrast to what Big Oil wants, and Sarah Palin represents Big Oil so SHE gets to go all over TV! You know, the "liberal media".

Sarah Palin: the poster child for corporations. The proof of this? The mere fact that she's on TV all the time and holds no office whatsoever.

THOUSANDS in Florida protest OFFSHORE DRILLING; media virtually IGNORES it, because it's not Republican, Tea Partiers, or Sarah Palin. You know, the FAKE liberal media. You're being DUPED by people who want you to think the mainstream media is "liberal". Look at the daily proof I provide, look it up yourself, compare things like the coverage of the Tea Party vs. Hands Across The Sand. Someone from the Tea Party could take a CRAP and it would be on the "news" 24x7. The "liberal media" actually IGNORES the liberals and citizens protesting against corporations like these Floridians protesting offshore drilling. By coincidence, Sarah Palin is famous and all over TV for her "DRILL BABY DRILL" soundbite PROMOTING OFFSHORE DRILLING!!! MANY protests against corporate interests are TOTALLY IGNORED by the media they want you to think is liberal. The Tea Party doesn't protest the wars, so they get to go on TV. Sarah Palin is for offshore drilling, so she gets to go on TV. Hands Across the Sand is AGAINST corporate offshore drilling, so they don't get to go on TV!!! Will you PLEEEEEAAAASE start realizing this? That the "liberal media" is a SHAM???

Hundreds of people clasped hands along the beach Saturday to show their opposition to proposed offshore oil drilling.

Protesters queued up behind Bud & Alley’s Restaurant about noon to form a chain for 10 minutes. It stretched several properties to the east and west in front of the sparkling surf.

I have to link you to local news coverage of this, because it won't be covered on the major "liberal" networks...because it's a protest against oil corporations who OWN the major networks and it's not Sarah Palin's Tea Party:

Hand To Hand, Floridians Protest Offshore Drilling

People hold hands across the sand to protest offshore drilling in Florida. A statewide initiative was planned on Florida's coasts.

Below is a LIBERAL, Noam Chomsky. THEREFORE, you will NEVER SEE HIM ON TV!!! The "liberal media" has no liberals! Isn't that something? It's because the CORPORATIONS who OWN the "liberal media" have defined the MIDDLE as LEFT, and there IS NO LEFT in the "liberal media"! Therefore, real liberals are totally ignored and they have redefined the middle as the left. That is why you don't see on TV: Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Cynthia McKinney, Dennis Kucinich, and any real liberals. Do you get this???

Dr. Ron Paul talks about the Tea Party being taken over by Neo-Cons and the Republican Party.

Tea Partiers: Ron Paul Bad, ConAgra & Bombing Iran Good

Have you had enough of "convenient" deaths? The death of Bush's IT guru Mike Connell in a mysterious plane crash after the heat was on him to testify about tampering with elections via the internet and electronic voting machines has never really been covered by the mainstream (not) liberal media. The timing of the plane crash was WAY too "convenient" to any rational person.

Connell died when the single-engine aircraft he was piloting just prior to Christmas 2008 crashed in flames near Akron. The tragedy came just weeks after he was compelled by a federal judge to give a deposition in a long-standing 2004 federal election fraud lawsuit, on the heels of reports that Connell had been threatened by Rove to "take the fall" for whatever happened in '04. After Worrall's year-long investigation, he believes it's highly likely that Connell was, in fact, murdered.

'Maxim' Feature on Death of Bush/Rove/GOP IT Guru Mike Connell is Now Posted Online

The closest thing to mainstream media coverage of the mysterious plane crash and death of Bush's IT guru, my daily proof that the corporate owned mainstream media isn't "liberal". Most of it is owned by 5 corporations and it serves the wealthiest few, corporations, and the military industrial complex.

MAXIM: The Mysterious Death of Bush's Cyber-Guru

Cheney revving up liberal TV exposure again; this will probably be the start of a DICK/LIZ tour of the "liberal TV" again, or DICKNEWT TV again. Isn't it WEEEEIIIIIRD how Republicans dominate the "liberal TV"? Who's on TV all the time? Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, and the Republicans! Even though they're the minority party! When this was the case from 2000 to 2006, the liberal TV said it was because the Republicans had the majority. Now there's simply no excuse. Will Newt Gingrich start being all over TV again? He already was! The other day, he LIED on TV and said the shoebomber was an American citizen! Did you notice? Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, and Newt Gingrich HOLD NO OFFICE BUT ARE ON TV ALL THE TIME!!!

Guy who is responsible for 3,000 Americans dying on 9/11 will go on TV today and say others are soft on terror.

3000 People Died Because Bush & Cheney Had A Different Agenda

CIA Checkmated in Afghanistan

9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey finally confesses 9-11 Commission could not do it's job
