"Fox for the right, MSNBC for the… " Huh?
Fox is for the extreme far right; along with Rupert Murdoch’s outlets, Clear Channel radio and others. Most other outlets, infected by the post-Goldwater torrent of conservative frames spread my every means available, are far right. MSNBC was never on the left; it was at best center-right with 1 or 2 commenters on the center-left, and is now entirely on the right (from what I’ve heard; I’ve never watched it).
US society has drifted so far to the right that most people alive don’t remember what a left is. Like degradation of nature, climate change, and other shifting baselines, our perception is skewed, year by year and generation by generation. As long as the political-economic system continues to allow control of media by those with money, the right will be ascendant. If we can recover power in time, we’ll be able to start the generations-long work of regenerating nature and the balance of human sanity together,
