I'm only going to address the media here. I don't know that the Dems control the media so much as the Global elites control the media, and the Dems are on the same wavelength, agenda.
Personally, I don't trust NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN, MSNBC or any other mainstream media. Just today CNN ran an article about Chris Cuomo coming out of his basement to see his family for first time in several weeks, since positive for covid19. Yet he himself spoke about an altercation he had publicly a week ago.
Personally I never watch tv news. I read my news online and I'm on Twitter.
The Blaze, the Daily Wire, Breitbart, Daily Caller, Zero Hedge, Gateway Pundit, Prager U videos, Bongino report, Epoch times ... alternative news.
Washington examiner and NYPost and Foxnews are more central
Yes, I'm a conservative, although really more libertarian. I didn't vote for Trump 2016, voted 3rd party. I will vote Trump 2020.
Even if these are too "Far right" for you, at least read them and open your eyes to the fact that much of the msm is just touting the liberal party line. They don't do real journalism any more. Even when our economy had increased to a record 3+% gdp under Trump and unemployment at record lows, the msm still had nothing to say positive about Trump. From day one he has been the devil. Yet, when Obama was in office, they never said a negative thing about him...he was the darling.
