The Big Media goes where the money and power is and has no real fixed politics left or right
"The People" don't listen much to intellectuals, priests, or government spokesmen, the people listen to the Big Media which makes things simple and sensational for the people. But if the highly influential Big Media is liberal left---and it certainly is---then why are the people supporting Donald Trump?
If the Big Media had ignored Trump he would not be getting much of the support he is getting. The people watch and listen to the provocative and sensational actions of Trump reported by the Big Media, as the Big Media chases the advertising dollar which increases with more viewers.
It is part of the congenital arrogance of the Big Media to believe that the Left will prevail in any case because the right are thought to be idiots.
In democracies as the people change the politics changes in the direction of the desires of the more numerous ethnic groups, immigration trends, and birth statistics. Demographic trends will not change human nature. But the Big Media will still greedily chase the dollar, whoever the population may be.
This suggest that the Big Media goes where the money and power is and has no real fixed politics left or right, which is probably why the Big Media is so despised and contemptible. One hopes that the greed that created the Big Media, which is a very powerful force in modern societies, will eventually destroy the Big Media.
