In one scene Charlie was arguing with a person who wanted to speak about an issue on the air. He seemed knowledgeable about the issue.

Charlie came back saying,“you are just not qualified to be put on the air”...

Basically, is that a way our media censors out the voice of the lower class...

Is that how our Republican corporate media does class warfare?

So basically 28% of our population is college educated...does that mean 72% of the population is not qualified to speak in the media?

How many TV announcers or newspaper reporter you think don’t have a degree...

Wiki says its 22% who hold a degree...

In 2005, the proportion of the population having finished high school and the percentage of those having earned bachelor's degrees remained at an all-time high, while the growth in both categories has slowed down over the past two decades. The vast majority of the population, 85.2%, had finished high school and nearly a quarter, 22%, had earned a Bachelor's degree. The percentage of both college and high school graduates has continued to increase since 2000.[2]

So 78% of us are not allowed to present the news and world to us in corporate media...

Media is a upper class tool of control...
