Vanity: What can we do to neutralize the power of the liberal agenda-promoting mainstream media?
The best solution is not boycotts, but to go direct to the source. This is to encourage Republicans to extend the antitrust act to the dozen or so media oligopolies.
Big media have consolidated control over almost all mass media, TV, radio, movies, newspapers, books, magazines, and big parts of the Internet.
Most recently they demonstrated their power by blatantly bribing congress to pass SOPA and PIPA, with the even more onerous ACTA on the horizon, a treaty that only needs a corrupt US senate to cause ruination to the Internet.
This is the final straw. Big media must be broken up. They are the ones behind this mess.
And only when they are broken up will consumers again be able to persuade the media to behave with the threat of boycotts.
One thing we need to do is keep getting the facts out there. Some people will never let facts sway them. In other cases, repeat the facts often enough, and they might start to believe them. (That's the tactic liberals use with their lies, so why not co-opt it for truth?)
Defund the left. Don’t pay for television. Don’t subscribe to a daily newspaper.
Starve the beast. Fewer viewers reduces their ratings which reduces their advertising revenue.
