Highlight from “CNN and Fox News Are Finally Covering the TPP After Ignoring It for Two Years”

Why might major news stations ignore this consequential international agreement?

One explanation may rest in who owns these media conglomerates. For example, MSNBC’s owner, Comcast, has lobbied for the TPP. Last year, it fired host Ed Schultz, an outspoken opponent of the agreement.

Time Warner, the parent company of CNN owner Turner Broadcasting, also lobbied for the TPP. 21st Century Fox — the legal successor to News Corporation, which operates Fox News — lobbied for passage as well.
