That is evidence of media conglomeration, not of a controlled media. I just got back from more than three months in China, and believe me -- US news media is not nearly as controlled by special interests or the government as it is in true state media.

Listen to the China Daily News, read the Shanghai Daily, or go online to China's news service Xinhua (http://www.xinhuanet.com/english2010/) and compare these offerings to the Christian Science Monitor, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, local investigative journalism, blogs, etc.

There are thousands of voices screaming at the top of their lungs in the United States. Don't confuse corporate news for everything -- as long as there are a handful of independent sources (and there are -- we can access news from any country in the world, thanks to our unblocked access to the internet and vis-a-vis the internet, billions of people), we are able to hear what passes for an unfiltered account of reality. Of course, if all you do is watch Fox News or read the New York Times, then yes, we do have a broken news system.

You would think the people who just get fed up eventually, but I guess as long as they have their filling comfort food they just can't be bothered.

Well, that and nice cars.
