AP Wire = boring
NY Times = liberal
Wash Post = liberal
CNN = celebrities! celebrities!!! celebrities! !!!

Is that a semi-accurate scorecard from your point of view?

To be honest, this is my scorecard:

ABC = yawn
CBS = dinosaurs
NBC = clowns
AP Wire = accurate
NY Times = slightly liberal
Wash Post = meh
CNN = celebrities! celebrities!!! celebrities! !!! celebrities! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fox News = fear-mongers and light, buttery popcorn entertainment

Talk radio I can happily cede to the right wing: they know the formula of how to rile people up, and will continue to diffuse it as far and as wide as their terrestrial radio towers can spread it. Oh, and traffic reports and sports fans arguing about trivial things.

I'm confused. This is not what "mainstream" means. In fact, every time the term MSM is brought up, it's used to bash these very networks. By your own omission of FOX News, it is part of the MSM... so?

Very very confused. Here I thought mainstream meant that it was run by a select few individuals with a corporate agenda, sometimes a political agenda, usually with a slant to whatever the overlords say. This is media that is forced down our throats by others on soapboxes, but especially by select talking heads who claim to be experts in their field and spout opinions as gospel.

Liberal radio network Air America has gone bankrupt and will cease live programming, the company told employees today.
Liberals talkers get their chance, they can't survive in the marketplace without government subsidies.

Exhibit 1 - NPR

NPR has a colossal audience -- it's enormously successful.

also, it's not liberal. it's listened to by liberals, precisely because it isn't shouty, confrontational, angry, and imbued with a false sense of crisis. it's calm, smart, balanced, informative, and requires an attention span.

and this is because it isn't driven by ratings. thus, journalists aren't under pressure to drum up an audience by appealing to the lowest common shock denominator Jerry Springer-style.

this is exactly why the best news on the planet *isn't* driven by markets and *is* subsidized by governments. NPR, PBS, and the BBC. you could probably throw in the CBC (Canadian) and ABC (Australian). i'm sure there are others. this is what you get in a free society, whereas, ironically, the ratings-driven LCD of right wing news makes Fox and Pravda essentially the same.

news, like health care, doesn't do well when it's about pushing a product.

NPR doesn't say what I want to hear = liberal garbage

Air America bankrupt = all liberal talk is a failure

Solyndra bankrupt = all green energy is a failure (oh, and Obama is a criminal)


Keep it simple for the conservatives. Nuance has a liberal bias.

A lot of people get hired for seasonal jobs this time of year. Check back in January and it will bounce back up.

Just saying.

actually this dip should be credited to OWS

camping out and smoking out kept them from going to the unemployment office
OWS is/was their job.
