    Precisely. It’s those issues that make the two parties different.

    Corporate News Media—that’s ABC, CBS, CNBC, CNN, Fox Business Network, Fox News Channel, NBC, and MSNBC (should I name more? Refer to the useless that we recognize as the Sunday-morning roundtable programs)—will continue to go out of their way to avoid reporting this. They’re busy trying to take down Hillary Clinton, are ignoring the legitimacy of Bernie Sanders, and they are legitimizing, by propping up to considerable extent, the biggest jokes among the Republican presidential hopefuls (like the thoroughly incompetent Dr. Ben Carson). Th interests of Corportate News Media are more closely aligned with the Republicans; so we’ll get more legitimized Republican talking points including the meme that the United States is, at the worst advantage for the Republican Party, a “center right country.”

    Re: MSNBC

    I watch their nighttime lineup, starting with Ed, at 5 pm EST. That’s when they’re most liberal/progressive.

    Daytime is as D described. Conservative shows in the mornings and mixed for the rest of the day until Ed comes on in the evening.

    On the weekend, it’s mostly shows about prisons.

    I second what D said about the Sunday morning political shows. They tend to feature more Republicans than Democrats.

    I also second what Southern Liberal said about MSNBC’s programming.
