You either aren't watching or reading or you are intentionally lying? Not sure which?
Most people do comprehend that corporate interests are out of control as our public sector Unions. Most people are not sheeple. Many very rich owners of media are extremely liberal including Bloomberg who just gave away 1.1 Billion to John Hopkins University, the same anti education person the UFT rails against.
no offense taken; you are entitled to your opinion. I respectfully disagree that there are a lot of stories from corporate media lamenting the affects of corporate controlled media on our democracy. It is simply not in their best interest to open up that can of worms. Of course a far-left station like MSNBC profits from those stories by appealing to its target audience. So it comes down to where you are getting the "news". If you watch a lot of MSNBC (I do not) then there is a heavy anti-corporate theme. But considering that their ratings are in the toilet I would argue that there are not a lot of Americans paying attention to them (relative to the population). If a tree falls in the forest.......
What I am also aware of is that the most watched cable "news" network by a mile is Fox, and they are very pro-business. Expecting to see/hear/read stories about the negative influence of corporate America on our democracy from News Corp is akin to the Wild E. Coyote warning the road runner that he is going to eat him.....
