Mediehuset 5080 er en dvask norsk kopi av The Onion, og elsker å gjøre narr av Fremskrittspartiet: http://goo.gl/vZdCEy
Problemet er at statsfinansierte NRK samarbeider med 5080 og gir dem penger. NRK-journalister stemmer også generelt mot venstre og på Miljøpartiet De Grønne. Dette gjenspeiles i at det stort sett er høyresiden som kritiseres mest og harseleres mest med i NRK, mens venstresiden slipper unna mye billigere.
Men til slutt kan det hende at mange nok føler at NRK ler av dem eller urettferdig kritiserer partiet de stemmer på, og da kan grunnlaget for NRK-lisensen falle bort.
Bare en vennlig advarsel fra en MDG-velger.
