You are so full of crap and lies. I don't have to go into all of theseright now, but I will just take on the first one.
Here is a quote from:
http://www.referenceforbusiness.com/biography...
In politics Redstone was an active supporter of the Democratic Party. He contributed heavily to the presidential candidacies of Jimmy Carter, Michael Dukakis, and Bill Clinton, and was an enthusiastic supporter of Edmund Muskie's campaigns to gain the party's presidential nomination during the 1970s. President Jimmy Carter appointed Redstone to the Presidential Advisory Committee of the Arts, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; and as a director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library Foundation.
Now go spout off some more lies.

Peggy is correct.
Mr. Redstone declared: "I look at the election from what's good for Viacom. I vote for what's good for Viacom. I vote, today, Viacom.
"I don't want to denigrate Kerry," he went on, "but from a Viacom standpoint, the election of a Republican administration is a better deal. Because the Republican administration has stood for many things we believe in, deregulation and so on. The Democrats are not bad people.... But from a Viacom standpoint, we believe the election of a Republican administration is better for our company."

Deregulation. Good for Viacom. It was good for fannie Mae and freddie Mac, but bad for the American tax payers!

No matter what supposed political affiliation these men have, they all have one thing in common: they're businessmen. Naturally they're in competition with one another. However, they're all united in their support. The support of profit.
Thus, every four years these men are all going to support the candidate that will be the best at adding a few more zeros to their revenue, presented to them in the form of tax breaks, de-regulation, government contracts, etc. The Bush administration has been steadily providing these global giants with the above and more. Therefore the candidate in this election that, once in office, is going to keep the profit margins on the up and up is going to be the one that:

a) Gets the corporate sponsorships

b) Gets the most media support

c) Wins

Who do you think was behind the Florida voting fiasco in 2000? It may not have been these guys, but it definitely wasn't Dubya.

Isn't this how high conspiracy warfare is conducted in the modern era? Make everything look obvious when they are not? What's a few hundred thousand when billions and absolute power are at stake?

Wow. Dumbshit. To appear not to favor my child I donate 5 dollars to someone else's kid. Donated money doesn't mean CEO isn't Republican or that "Journalists" aren't told how to slant a story. You are why this Nation just got sent back 100 years in civil rights causes. Read real studies and not this hack crap.
