It is funny, every once in a while someone will try to make the case to me that #oldmedia, TV, newspapers, cuneiform tablets, aren’t overwhelmingly statist. These people argue that because the #oldmedia is controlled by a handful (and soon to be a smaller handful) of large corporations that this somehow means that the media, ispso facto, can’t be “liberal.” That somehow corporations aren’t for what is often considered the “liberal” or now “progressive” agenda.
