Tinfoil-hat? It's not as if I'm the only one questioning who owns
the media these days. http://www.freepress.net/
http://www.mediatrademonitor.org/ http://www.openairwaves.org/ and so on.
I thought the "page views" bit was obvious. The ownership and ad-base
means they don't care if they outrage us. It's legitimate to point out
their well-documented influences.
