Comcast Corporation, owner of MSNBC, has cancelled “The Ed Show” with Ed Schultz, allegedly because Ed Schultz wouldn’t submit to demands that he stop talking about the TransPacific Partnership (TPP) on air. While one can look at this event as a communications industry/media milestone: the day progressive voices were once and for all effectively censored/banned from American mainstream corporate media, Comcast’s decision could result in a great backlash of increased opposition to TPP in the United States and potential TPP signatory nations, as well as against the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in the US and Europe.
On the bright side, the trend toward people rejecting corporate cable media and finding the real news on the internet will only accelerate and grow, plus anyone in America looking for good deals on used TVs will now face absolutely no difficulty finding them.
So it goes…
