We do not have a free press

Sure we do, they're free to publish whatever increases shareholder value for them. If that means publishing a bunch or pro-liberal propaganda, they're free to do that.

They are NOT forced by law to report the news in an unbiased manner.

If you think there's a market demand for more conservative propaganda, you're free to try to publish THAT for profit.

Why does everyone want a free market UNTIL it doesn't provide what they want to see? Is this a 'market failure'?

The problem with your argument is that the government controls the airwaves so it is not a true free market.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996[1] was the first significant overhaul of United States telecommunications law in more than sixty years, amending the Communications Act of 1934. The Act, signed by President Bill Clinton, represented a major change in American telecommunication law, since it was the first time that the Internet was included in broadcasting and spectrum allotment.[2] One of the most controversial titles was Title 3 ("Cable Services"), which allowed for media cross-ownership.[2] According to the FCC, the goal of the law was to "let anyone enter any communications business – to let any communications business compete in any market against any other."[3] The legislation's primary goal was deregulation of the converging broadcasting and telecommunications markets. [4]

WTF?

Is that all you've got? Are you drunk yet?

Besides, coming from you, I should take that as a compliment.

Probably, why is that so funny? Are your shares tanking?

I'm sorry that I don't buy into your line of thinking that the government should regulate the press to be more objective.

If it's a private business or a publically traded corporation, they should publish whatever they want.

Are you insinuating there is a market failure here, Zach?
