There was a time when the media was for the truth, now they are just for the money. Some pundit put it better than I, "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story."

Near as I can tell, the news media has always been partisan. What we call "muck raking" today was "business as normal" back then. What they called muck raking then, hooooo boy. People today could not handle that sort of thing.

The news media that supported the Republican Party gradually faded out, and only the leftoid socialists are still in print.

For now.

They're not in it for the money, either. They're in it to change the world to what they want it to be. Which is why the NYT is losing money and viewership on the network news is down.

You're so right!! The NY Times was once know as "The Newspaper of Record". In high school we did projects for history and they were actually a reference source.

In one of our 2 local newspapers (the one of 2 I haven't cancelled yet), there was good news about Oblamer and no bad news. At the same time there was no good news about Romney and just bad news.

All papers and visual media had fun with big bird (like the General's affair) rather than deal with anything substantial that could in any way harm the Annointed One. I just wish folks who voted for him could be the only ones negatively impacted. Unfortunately, we'll be flushed down the crapper with the liberal turds.

It’s a common refrain from the victor: elections have consequences. The victor then goes on to claim a mandate to do A or Z. It’s par for the course. The real question is whether elections have consequences for the media. As it turns out, the answer appears to be yes.

On a whole host of issues, the mainstream media’s reporting seems to have a bit more balance, at least compared to the pre-election coverage of some of the campaign’s most important issues.

The left will dismiss this as conservative sour grapes, but ask yourself whether you saw, heard or...
