Spend a few weeks in Kent, though, and you'll soon realise how right I am.
And haven't solved the issue of why a clear desire for left wing views isn't monetized.
Of course corporations chase money - that is their raison d'etre - but they don't just generate profit from sales. In fact most print media generate more via advertising. So while they require a high readership they also need to publish a corporate friendly output. Is a corporate friendly output compatible with genuine left wing, progressive editorial? No.
So we have every corporate media outlet pushing corporate friendly articles and biases - none (or at least very little) of which can carry a genuine left wing message because the two are oppositional.
The monetisation via sales is predominantly through social differences. Yes, I agree there are a lot of nasty ####ers in England. But most are not.
Look at these immigrants!
Look at this transgender shoemaker for iguanas!
Look at this sport!
Look at this dole scum!
Look at these ridiculously expensive houses for sale!
Those are the differences, the flavours. But ALL project corporate friendly politics and economics.
Not one will ever consistently publish a genuine, progressive, left wing editorial stance because that is not corporate friendly and that is not going to win you advertising contracts, which is where the money is.
All they do is hold a mirror up to the prejudices of their respective readerships.
That's why the right wing papers sell more. Because there are more right wing people in Britain than left wing. It's also why the Conservative and Hooray Party win elections despite crippling austerity policies.
But then how would you explain the range of views from right wing to centre-right across all UK corporate media (save for identity politics and tokenism in the Guardian and Independent)?
Would you suggest that a genuine left wing view cannot be monetized? That there isn't enough interest? The fact that left wing leaning news sites on the internet are popular would appear to belie that.
