The Crumbling Old Media Monoply

Scott Elliott of Election Projection looks at one group who is consistently polling worse and worse: the legacy media:

The idea that the old media simply reports the news is as dead in this country as Howard Dean’s presidential hopes. Voters now understand that the evening news and the daily newspaper are not much more than political advertisements geared to promote an agenda.

No wonder blogger Frank Martin recently wrote:

Nomenclature change: “Main Stream Media” shall now be known as “Ted Baxter Media”. “Main Stream” Refers to their audience. “Ted Baxter” is the very defintion of the archetype of the blowdried morons that inhabit too many newsrooms these days.

We concur.
