Ring of Fire Radio has the commentary Comcast Orders MSNBC To Remove Anti-TPP Hosts.
When it comes to coverage of the Trans Pacific Partnership, no one in the corporate media covered the issue more than Ed Schultz on MSNBC’s The Ed Show. When it was announced last week that they were pulling the plug on his program, they effectively killed the only national voice that was talking about the disaster of a trade deal on cable news.
But what is the real reason for MSNBC dumping Ed? When you dig down, it’s dirtier than you would think.
I had no idea of the real reason why these changes have been made. I just thought that Progressives didn’t have the stomach for media aimed at them that was a mirror image of the stuff aimed at the regressives.
The mention of Bill Clinton’s support for media conglomeration was something that I had forgotten about. I thought it was all Reagan’s fault for doing away with the fairness doctrine.
Now you have a deeper understanding of the attack these companies have been making on net neutrality. The internet is the last bastion that has held out against the silencing of Progressive voices. I wonder when I will get shut down.
