The Corporate Media Is Basically Ignoring the FCC Plan to Kill Net Neutrality

Thanks to Anti-Media

(COMMONDREAMS) — With just over two weeks left until the FCC is set to vote on chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to decimate net neutrality, a new study published on Tuesday by Media Matters for America found that corporate cable and broadcast news coverage of Pai’s proposed net neutrality repeal has been sorely lacking—and, in some cases, nonexistent.

In fact, the decision to sit out the Star Spangled Banner has a pointed nuance even Kaepernick and his supporters might not realize — Francis Scott Key’s song, penned during the war of 1812, glorifies slavery and oppression. Its rarely-sung third verse, as noted by the Intercept, states: Continue reading Five Critical Stories Americans Missed While the Corporate Media Bashed Colin Kaepernick
