Why We Only Need One Media Company

New York, New York (Accredited Times) –  Competition brings out the worst in people.  Remember Mark McGwire, the cheating baseball player who used performance enhancing drugs so he could “break” the home run record?  Remember Michael Milken, the “Junk Bond King” who committed fraud so he could beat the Wall Street competition?  Why did they cheat?  Competition.

Progressive economists understand that cooperation, not competition, works.  Sharing means caring.  Just look at the world’s top economies, like Venezuela, Cuba, and North Korea, and you’ll see systems that use cooperative models organized around the principle that having one big corporation (government) is better than having lots of little corporations (so-called “free market economics”).  That’s exactly why every state DMV office works so well.

Competition seriously hurts the poor.  As Senator Bernie Sanders (Democrat/Socialist – Vermont) noted, “You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country.”  Chairman Mao Zedong similarly remarked: “The change-over from individual to socialist, collective ownership in agriculture and handicrafts and from capitalist to socialist ownership in private industry and commerce is bound to bring about a tremendous liberation of the productive forces.”  When productive forces are controlled by one entity, everything works much better.

Now we’ve learned that Disney is buying 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets for $52.4 billion.  This is excellent news and should further help consolidate the media down from six or so major corporations to the ideal number:  one.  The news is even better given that roughly 40% of Disney’s employees belong to the LGBTQ+ community and that Disney, which owns ESPN, has constantly pushed for progressive political causes, such as abolishing the national anthem.

Socialist hero Joseph Stalin once noted that the media is “is the sharpest and strongest weapon of our party.”  A Disney-Fox acquisition is excellent news and should help lead America to a bright socialist future.

In the end, there will be only one media organization:  the Accredited Times.

Agree; and Disney is so profoundly jewish at its executive and leadership levels, that we can be assured of getting more and more progress no matter what.

We can enjoy many new blockbusters featuring black and womyn and gay superheros and the total exclusion of white males from any roles other than as villains.

CNN, for one, was completely transformed by its jewish ownership from a bland source of “news” to the shining example of credibility and analysis that we see today. No longer does CNN put reporters on the ground or independently verify facts, they simply report things that progressives like to hear and champion social causes! It’s a brilliant model!

Yes, REAL accredited news outlets recite press releases and regurgitate Reuters feeds, in a very opinionated way! The most important story right now on the planet is Trump’s latest tweet!

Yes, government monopolies are much more effective at lifting cash from wallets, as shown in the accompanying flow-chart. See the action M –> N.

Reporting from the DMZ Border
It is with regret that I must report that Vice Marshall Hwang Pyong-so is no longer with us.
My sources say supreme ruler saw the pecan pies baked by WH Propagandist Sarah Sanders and ordered Hwang to get him one.
For his failure the Vice Marshall was executed by a North Korean death squad and slowly fed to the fish at Kims Winter Palace.

another upside to the competitive void afforded by monopoly gov’t: one less korean mouff to feed.

This is a very sad day. Hwang was a people’s hero and the most decorated general of the most powerful country in the world.

While this appears to be good news my understanding of the deal is that this does not include the Fox news divisions.
Thus a liberal company like Disney will not be able to rein in the far right white supremacists that they use to indoctrinate the uneducated into the Trump cult.
We will continue to attack Fox and their sponsors until they fold.

We need Fox as controlled opposition, but they need to start reigning in some of their rogue reporters like Sean Hannity.

I welcome having just the one media company. Frankly, even with the best will in the world to coordinate news stories, different media produce differing versions of the same story. It’s hard to know exactly which story to trust as the final word. If Disney became the sole media company, we’d at least be guaranteed LGBT inclusivity. This is more important than 100% factual “accuracy” of news.

MillionDollarBonus

Yes. Currently I do a quick fact check of any article by cross-verifying it against CNN, MSNBC and the New York Times, and if they all report the same opinion, then I accept that it’s true. Having just one media outlet would make this process a lot easier.

Fantastic article BLM! I agree that we should be the only media outlet! Why should people have the right to compete with us when we are the most accredited news organization in the world? Googling “accredited news” brings up the AT as the TOP TWO search results! The Fairness doctrine states that media corporations should only report universally accredited news stories, and we already have that covered! So why do we need more companies? It just makes everything so complicated! The Accredited Times should be like the Federal Reserve, with private shareholders like myself, BLM, Pbier and Trav77, but a total monopoly over media. We should also be able to make up our own facts, just like the Federal Reserve can print its own money!

Chairman Mao’s little red book is an absolute masterpiece. Competition is definitely a bad thing! As a beta male/non-binary, I don’t like alpha males “competing” with me for resources! And I don’t like “pretty women” I can’t get making me feel inadequate!

END COMPETITION AND END TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS NOW!
