“He who owns the microphone can do whatever they want.”

This is such an important point. In a more civilized time, the mass media was an important watchdog, holding all politicians to the same standard.

Once media picks sides, it’s no longer journalism. It’s propaganda.

So we must fight back on two fronts; ignore, reject, and boycott the media outlets that ignore their sacred duty to remain objective, and reinvigorate the Republican party with conservatives.

Not going to be easy, but what other choices are there?

You're in a fantasy. The good old days never were. The media has always existed as a mouthpiece for the political perspective of its owner.

If conservatives want to do better and get their ideas out there engage the media. Write articles, produce exposes and documentaries, and own media outlets.

Ideally, you need to end teacher's unions and government schooling, but that's been rejected so far.
