Salon imagines a world in which there are no privately owned media outlets; just progressive Government networks putting out propaganda. (This article is presented by Salon by way of promoting a book advocating Utopian Socialism in the United States.)
In a socialist society a portion of the media would be reserved for news disseminated by the democratically elected governing bodies, that is, working people elected by and for working people.
Discussions, debates, even battles will continue, and social justice committees will be elected by the union membership to look into complaints and to dig up and root out capitalist, racist, and sexist weeds that continue to grow.
In short, imagine a world where MSDNC was on every channel, and the only alternative was NPR.
The left hates it when you call them Fascists, but the idea of all media being controlled by the state is pretty… um… Fascist.
