Republican Tax Cuts for ‘Liberal Media’

Brad Johnson presents another argument (Think Progress, 10/3/08) against the “liberal media bias” myth: “These tired claims ignore the reality that the right-wing agenda actually benefits the ‘mainstream media'”:

The multinational corporations that run the mainstream media–GE (NBC), Time Warner (CNN), Walt Disney (ABC), News Corporation (FOX), and Viacom (CBS)–stand to benefit hugely under a McCain presidency. The centerpiece of Sen. McCainâ┚¬Ã¢”ž¢s economic plan–actually, the whole plan–is large tax cuts for corporations. It would deliver $1.44 billion in tax cuts to the five largest media companies, according to an analysis by the Center for American Progress Action Fund.
