'Bye, Rush!': Salon sings praises of nationalized media in a socialist USA

When Salon runs a piece called, “Let’s nationalize Fox News: Imagining a very different media,” know that Fox News is being thrown out as red meat for the Salon readership; writer Fred Jerome envisions a world without any corporate media, so say goodbye to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal as well as Rush Limbaugh. What will be left in their place? Jerome writes:

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.

That’s where smaller, labor union-run media would pick up the rest of the story via social justice committees.

But state ownership is not the only way media can represent the interests of working people, to speak with or through their voices. In most cases, the media would be owned and operated by working-class organizations—labor unions, neighborhood associations, and cultural centers.

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.

Social justice committees in each workplace and community will have no shortage of complaints to consider—and the media will have no shortage of stories to investigate.

Once those weeds have been rooted out, you’ll wonder why you ever needed another point of view to consider.
