RFK Jr. Slams “Right-Wing Control of American Media”
Cybercast News Service ^ | December 10, 2012 | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 12/10/2012 11:13:00 AM PST by Olog-hai

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a lawyer and environmental activist, told the Huffington Post that the “right-wing” controls the media in the United States and as a result has “divided our country” in a way not seen since the Civil War. …

“95 percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing,” he said. “And you need—according to Pew [Research Center] survey—and so you have whole sections of our country that’s what they are hearing from when they wake up in the morning to when they go to bed at night. Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News,” Kennedy said Friday in an interview with Huff Post Live. …

I inadvertently sat in on a DNC meetup and they were going on about how the right had seized control of CNN.

They look sane but when you hear them talking among themselves you realize that they are not.

Absolutely insane, but what else is expected from ignorant sheeple these days.

IT IS OVER. Boehner just itching to cave on cliff. Next up some bluster on Debt Ceiling and you can bet he has already told the messiah that he will cave on ceiling. WE ARE SO FINISHED. Just keep the printing presses working 24x7

Even if you just look at talk radio, you’d have to say that the conservatives are in the minority. At best, Hannity and O Reilly etc. are centrists.

Take it easy Bob, you guys got National Public Radio.

The NPR station in my region switched from classical music to news/talk in the last year.

In Washington DC a public radio news/talk station is among the top rated stations (usually No. 1 or 2).

You’ve got CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, Current and the list goes on.

No, that drunk was Patrick "Patches" Kennedy, the son of Ted "I killed a girl" Kennedy.

This is one way the freeloading Kennedy can take the attention off him, the stiffed saps who had to pay for his home renovations, and the suicide of his poor wife who apparently, so I’ve heard, could be true or not, was run insane by this jerk.

This Robert Kennedy is a lawyer?What kind of lawyer is he?One who files frivolous law suits or one who just looks at mortgages all day.

I have never heared about him being involved in any important cases.

RFK complained about Right-Wing media control to the Huffington Post!

HuffPo and Politico are the two most highly trafficked political websites in America, and both are All Left, All The Time.

The only vaguely competitive Right-Wing website is Drudge, which - 95% of the time - just links to Conservative news stories in the Hard Left MSM.

Hard Left Network News outguns Fox News about 10 to 1 in viewers.

Most of the top basic news stories in the USA can be linked directly back to Hard Left news agencies like AP, NYTimes, WashPost.

Virtually all international news can be linked back to Hard Left news agencies like AP, Reuters, BBC, AFP, Bloomberg.

Except for Talk Radio, Conservatives are utterly dominated by the Hard Left media.

“95 percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing,”

Thank God for that 95%, otherwise we’d be kneedeep in a Democrat/Obama total dictatorship, we’re close enough already.

How can he practice law with a felony drug conviction? He was sentenced to probation by working with the Hudson River Project. During which time he forced out the fishermen that actually started it by leveraging with Kennedy money. This is Racketeering and he should have gone to prison. But he’s a Kennedy.

AH, another a-hole Kennedy heard from. Trying to make a name for himself by using the family name and a rant based on his own liberal stupidity. I’m sure this will bring much love from his fellow inmates at the liberal nut house.

Is this the guy that literally drove his wife insane?

And upon finding her body, immediately began a public campaign to smear her reputation when she couldn’t defend herself?

Didn’t allow her family to participate in her funeral? Buried her in private Kennedy cemetary where they can’t visit her?
Dug her up, reburied her farther away from family members?

THAT Bobby Kennedy Jr?

Talk about A WAR ON WOMEN!!!!

I think it was Patrick....."Mr. Kennedy, a Rhode Island Democrat, said he drove to the Capitol at about 2:45 a.m. in the mistaken belief that he needed to vote. The House was not in session, having adjourned at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday."

Buth what the hay - all Kennedy's have flaws. But they are honorable because they want to do good with OPM. /sarc
