The 'liberal' media
This phrase comes up again and again....without a single shred of evidence to show how or why the 'meedja' is supposedly so left-wing. Happens in the UK too where the BBC is percieved as practically revolutionary. How has this bizarre thinking come about? Is it because of a percieved 'artiness? Do a lot of journos have beards and wear badly knitted woollies? Ride bikes to work? And hey, the bile over the 'mickey-mouse degrees' such as media studies.
As far as I can see (not that far admittedly) the 'media' consists of some of the most nakedly rabid capitalist icons of the 21C. Chief graspers and bullies being the likes of the Murdoch family, going right on down to the ghastly celebrity mags which keep the mouth breathers sedated.
