The press was bought out.
1. GE owns NBC and Obama gave GE a nice taxpayer funded $126 bailout to shill on his behalf.
2. The MSM non-profits like Air America, NPR and Media Matters receive funds through the Democracy Alliance which is funded by George Soros. Soros paid off the media and kind of bought Obama's presidency.
Obama is no Mao. Soros is no Mao.
Mao hated free thinkers and wacky people. He hated the free thinking "liberals" so much that he had many of them killed off. The last 2 years caused me to sympathize with Chairman Mao, although i hated his politics.
