Perhaps you should research the underlying ownership of most all media.
CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and many other are largely owned by the same largest institutional firms.
Check morningstar.com for proof.
It’s all corporate B.S.
If you haven’t, read “The New Media Monopoly” by Ben Bagdikian.
“Five global firms ‘operating with many of the characteristics of a cartel’ own
most book publishers, newspapers, magazines, movie studios, radio stations
and TV stations in the United States.

“The ‘product’ of media are entertainment, news and political programs and
the big 5 indulge in mutual aid and share investments in the same product.”
“The Big 5 have interlocking members on their boards of directors (ex. News

Ever stop to consider the same corporations that are offering the entertainment (movies, television, etc.) are also offering the “news”?

The “Liberals” and “Conservatives” have more in common that the elite will ever allow them to realize (the natural rights of humans, the rejection of the “Divine Rights of Kings”, rule of the PEOPLE, rejection of aristocracy, etc.).
The .001 percent control the masses, via the use of propaganda, in their highly-concentrated media.
“In cities [democracies] men cannot be prevented from concerting together, and from awakening a mutual excitement which prompts sudden and passionate resolutions. Cities may be looked upon as large assemblies, of which all the inhabitants are members; their populace exercises a prodigious influence upon the magistrates, and frequently executes its own wishes without their intervention.”
-Alexis de Tocqueville-
