I know people will rebut that Amazon has competition from Walmart etc etc but really they don’t…nothing comes close in North America for the expanse of their reach.
I don't know why people will not admit that. If we get another store a user can choose where they want to buy from. Choice is competition. Funny how back in the day everyone was up in arms over Internet explorer being bundled. But when another company does this - it's all fine. Sure we had linux back then too, but the issue was only over Microsoft. hmmm.

MSNBC, by comparison, is pretty clear about its quest for a liberal audience. FNC's primetime lineup is strongly to the right, whereas its news coverage probably leans right. The point is they are both mostly transparent about who they are and what they're doing. CNN is just an utter embarrassment.I disagree that its been a real "news network", back in the 90s it shilled for the WH and the WH was 'republican'.Its bad then its bad now, this is always been CNN's problem. So yeah now they want to sell content, sure go ahead go for it, why not? who buys it? I dunno there's a sucker born every minute.
