My post is about the context that they pay now, not more in the context of compared to others.

What setbacks would those be? Where are you getting your information?

"...In fact, CNN has been a steady profit generator for AT&T and its previous parent company, Time Warner. A CNN spokesman via Twitter that the company is having “the most profitable year in its history.”

"...Compared to 2nd quarter of 2018, MSNBC was the only cable news network to grow among total viewers in dayside (+2%)...MSNBC, which is nominated for five News and Documentary Emmy® Awards including during dayside, was overall the #2-ranked network across all of cable in dayside..."

"The New York Times subscribers are skyrocketing."

I have many many friends on "the left", I would certainly not think that they think that.

However, you're attempting to wave off my comment specifically about Thinkprogress by putting for that they only had tax policy issues with the wealthy.

If that's all you ever saw (or recall) then perhaps that explains it but I figured you'd posted here enough to have seen a lot more anti-rich come out of thinkprogress than just tax policy. "rich" has been used as an attack word in political circles too...heck even the rightwingers have stolen that one for use on people like Kerry and noting Obama's wealth gains out of office.

Please note that you basically strawmanned that I attacked "the left" and then concluded with "I know you are but what am I".

Thinkprogress is a part of a Policy Institute, it isnt Huffington post. Most of the people writing the articles there arent activists or college kids with ideas. they are people who have worked in government or professors studying the subject they are writing about.

So yes, this is genuinely a disagreement about what Thinkprogress is and does. If you have seen different, then thats that, and we disagree. I have scrolled through what is left of their site and dont see anything along those lines of demonizing the rich though.
