Despite the repeated claims of liberal media bias from the right, it never seems to be that way in practice. Journal Communications is building another platform for Charlie Sykes to promote himself, his right-wing buddies, and conservative politics. In many ways this is more blatant than Fox News in that the media juggernaut will apparently be promoted by the newspapers and 48 television and radio stations it owns, and apparently prides itself on not being "fair and balanced". At the moment rightwisconsin.com is still in development, but promises
The playing field remains tilted against conservatives. The left still controls the mainstream media, universities, and have a head start on some of the new media.
RightWisconsin will be a digital community, a rallying point, a one-stop source for conservatives on the front lines here.
RightWisconsin will be more than simply another conservative website; it will have a full-time staff and multiple platforms -- mobile, tablet, internet, social media applications.
Sykes also promises plenty of support from the corporate association -
We can do all of this because we have the resources of a major media company behind us, including the state's biggest radio station and top-rated television station. In other words, we have built-in platforms for promotion as well as the infrastructure to make RightWisconsin multi-media.
We are hoping to partner with conservative groups throughout the state. RightWisconsin will not be in competition with those groups, it will provide another outlet for them. And it will drive the left and their allies nuts.
The company has also registered leftwisconsin.com and wrongwisconsin.com - both of which happily redirect you to Charlie's new enterprise. So I guess the concept here is that the entire world of political discusssion will be Charlie Sykes' opinion as promoted and funded by Journal Communications. Tell me again how liberals control the media?
