An Analysis of MSNBC, CNN, and Fox

This website was not designed to support any political party, any religion, nor any race. This website was designed to truthfully inform individuals in a rhadamanthine manner about various areas of knowledge and information.  Also, the author has gone to great lengths to separate his opinion from factual information.

I watch MSNBC, CNN, and FOX. These three media corporations present a lot of political information and a surprisingly large amount of disinformation.  My main question is as follows.  Are Don Lemon of CNN, Sean Hannity of FOX, and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC more qualified than the average man or woman in America to present and analyze political information ? My answer is NO.  But it is important to understand that none of the mentioned media outlets are highly motivated to present accurate information and new ideas.  These corporations are concerned with ratings and high ratings means more money for their respective advertisements.

If Don Lemon were replaced by a talking dog and CNN’s ratings increased, that would be the end of Don Lemon.  If Sean Hannity were replaced by a dancing turkey and FOX’s ratings increased, that would be the end of Sean Hannity.  If Rachel Maddow were replaced by a singing cockroach and MSNBC’s ratings increased, that would be the end of Rachel Maddow.

Now surely the men and women who read my website have clearly figured out that MSNBC and CNN strongly attempt to appeal to the liberal and left wing individuals to support their ratings. FOX appeals to moderates and conservatives.  However, two of the three corporations transmit a large amount of false information and what I view as hate speech.  As a law abiding American, I sincerely believe in free speech. However there are limits to the dissemination of false information and hate speech.  I will leave it up to my readers to determine the media that is best for them.  But remember, propaganda does not fool anyone, it only helps people to fool themselves.

Therefore, without malice, I hope that I have made a point without bashing any of these three corporations.  Additionally, I would like to suggest that each of these three profit making corporations increase their viewers by allowing some average Americans to appear on their programs.  Possibly there could be a 20 minute segment titled: 1) America Speaks, or 2) The People Speak.  It might work like this: Eight people are on a panel of people.  Two of the eight would be Clinton supporting Democrats from the 2016 election.  Two others would be Trump supporting Republicans from the 2016 election.  The remaining four would be independent voters from the 2016 election.  The moderator would ask fair questions like since you voted for Trump or Clinton in 2016, would you do so again? As a democrat, what do you like best about Trump. As a republican what do like best about Hillary Clinton? Do you feel that you are financially better of now than you were in 2016 ? Allow each person a fair amount of time and each corporation might be surprised by the amount of unbiased information that could be presented.  ” Stacking the deck” by selecting a surplus of liberal or conservative individuals would be readily understood by the viewers.

I would like to give some well deserved praise to Tucker Carlson since he presents new ideas and allows multiple views to be presented.  Both the left and the right should attempt to present new ideas to expand the knowledge base of the American People.
