You don't have to be in the media to understand media bias. You just have to educate yourself on all sides of issues.

Traditional news media has always had flaws. We just know about them more now.

Just because we know about the flaws in journalism, it does not follow that blogs are superior sources of news.

It's always had flaws, yes, but the flaws are more visible because they're growing exponentially.

Um...you do know there is a forum if you want to go political? It's called Politically Incorrect. There's even a link to it on the front page of this forum. So you go there if you want to delve into politics.

And you just couldn't resist making this political, could you. Congrats on getting this thread shut down.
