One aspect of the media - television, in general is. I am appalled by the crap on television. IMO, everything on during prime-time TV is rancid garbage except Jeopardy! and the Simpsons and the latter I don't watch anymore.
As for the news, when I do watch it, especially on the rare occasion I catch something on CNN, MSNBC, or NBC, I feel like I am watching Obama fan club channels which I have dubbed "BONED" - Barack Obama News and EDucation. Sure, BHO seems like a nice guy and all with many positive attributes but this idolatry and slavering about by the press gives them no credibility anymore. This guy can start acting like Buzz Windrip and the brain-dead minions in the media would follow and obey without question. (I think every voter should have read Sinclair Lewis' It Can't Happen Here before they voted last November).
The article seems to spend more time bashing Bush and the people who voted for him than addressing the question it asks. The article seems to try to prove that anyone who voted for Bush is stupid and only listens to Michelle Malkin.
The US media is overwhelmingly liberal and makes no bones to conceal it anymore. Conservatives have developed a distrust of many media outlets so only the audience that believes the real media are the liberals. So, the real question that could be poised is "is the US media people into stupid liberals."
And if indeed we are just a bunch of uneducated dullards, it's amazing that we can as a nation crank out a $14 trillion GDP. Imagine what we could if we would read more books and tell the difference between an (increasingly rare) unbiased newspaper article and a Keith Olberführer anti-American rant. Wait, I take that back: imagine what we could do if we voted based on our values and beliefs instead of who the NYTimes and MSNBC tell us to.
By the way, not that I feel I should defend myself, but I do read about 20 books a year. Find my website and there's a list. I consider myself much better informed than the average American and I voted for Bush twice.
