      Corporate media in the United States work hand in hand with the state and promote its neoliberal and imperialist agenda. There is great continuity from administration to administration and nowhere is that more obvious than in the realm of foreign policy. The duopoly war party consensus doesn’t just dominate in the White House and Congress, but also in television news and newspapers. The recent summit meeting between Joe Biden  and Russian president Vladimir Putin  demonstrated that the media see themselves as governmental servants. They have little interest in being adversarial or keeping the public informed of anything meaningful.

      Biden’s team carefully chose who would be allowed to question him at his press conference and no Russian media were invited. In contrast, American reporters were among those at Putin’s press conference and they gave him no consideration. Journalists are supposed to ask tough questions, but ideally those questions should further our understanding of events. If a head of state is put on the spot, it ought to be because important issues are being addressed.

      All of the fraudulence of Russiagate has been accepted as fact by the media and they pursued the same line of questioning with Biden, positing that Russia interfered in U.S. elections and is responsible for every cyber attack taking place in this country.

      Despite all claims of freedom and democracy, the corporate media in this country only repeat what they are told. They are partners with the people and institutions they should be investigating. Of course, that is why Black Agenda Report and sites like it play such a vital role. If not for news from a left perspective, the truth would rarely see the light of day.

      I read that as ‘dopey’ on the first pass.  Turns out they have the same meaning.

      Dopes of the Duopoly.   Sounds like a great name for a newscast.  Maybe The Hill can use it for their morning show now that they have new faces.

      Corporate America consists of totalitarian entities laser-focused on short-term greed.

      Like being in control of the Naval Base in Crimea? Here was the exchange in Ukraine, you badasses Nazis with a makeup job can run the nation, but we get to run the Naval Base. Deal? This sounds like something Obama and Biden would do.
