Have our local newspapers, radio, and TV become banana republic mouthpieces of state and local politicians?

????????? ?Growth Ahead in Atlantic City.?? CRDA backs gym, light show at Trop, rental units in Inlet. . . Nonprofit agency tasked with luring conventions?.?? Front Page ?News? of Press of Atlantic City,? 3/19/2014.???? Wonder why?nothing but good “news” about the great job our government officials are doing?in our daily newspaper, talk radio, and local TV????Wonder why?they report how state and local government programs are causing?all the good things, while?bad things caused by someone else??? Business is bad because of Hurricane Sandy–not high taxes, tolls, fees, bad roads, high electric bills, pay-to-play politics, etc.?? 47% tax hike caused by casino tax appeals–not out-of-control government spending in Atlantic City.???Wonder why comments of only?government officials, or leaders?of groups friendly to government officials are published, while our opinions are ignored except for letters to the editor?

? Is it because the media is bought and paid for by the politicians who run the government???? Who decides which newspapers, radio, and TV stations get the $25 million tax dollars per year for the ?Do AC? ads???? Or the $5 million of federal ?disaster relief? money for advertising???? Or the paid ads telling us about the virtues of the Motor Vehicles Division??? Or the paid county ads for traffic safety???? How much radio, TV, and newspaper advertising comes from hospitals, banks, and and utility companies that depend on government funds and permits??? If you owned a newspaper, radio, or TV station, would you let your news department run stories that make enemies of the politicians who give you most of your advertising money?
