Coming Soon, Making a case to Deny the US media outlets from intermingling, just the way gang members are treated.

I recall from time to time how injunctions are meted out against gang members so they cannot meet in public. In general, the ACLU is against such rulings, but then the crime drops in that area, and it probably is a good thing the judge mandated the gang members not meet up. It probably even gives the gang members a chance to develop their own identity without having to worry what other members in the gang may think.

I have been wondering if the same ruling could be applied to the insidiously gang like behavior of MSNBC, Huffington Post, CNN, Newsweek, Time, and the mother ship, George Soros. These factions have aligned in such a way as to validate each other on a day to day basis.

MSNBC and CNN constantly have Huffington Post "pundits" on their shows. Newsweek and MSNBC not only share website links, they also share each others pundits, cross pollinating punditry. CNN and Time do the same thing with their guests. Huffington posts welcomes viewpoints from anyone who might help them reach their pre-ordained agenda of getting Barack Obama elected, and more importantly, Huffington Post is the feeder to many news channels. Huffington Post appears to be funded by George Soros.

I would suggest that these news organizations be barred from mingling with each other on television. Just as gang members hanging out on street corners can sometimes be bad for their neighborhood in general, the same ruling could be applied to media interests that hang out together while purporting to be reporting the news, rather than manipulating the news and reinforcing their version by using each other's pundits.
