Or as Biden calls it, "the legitimate media"
As for the direction the country is heading, I can't say I like it, either. I think this gal sums it up best in this little tune (Put on your headset. The arrangement is something else):
I read more political stuff than I watch or listen to on the radio.
Except for local stuff....I listen to Mark Belling, who sits in for Rush on occasion.
I like this song, a LOT;
Our corrupt national media is a results of our corrupt two Parties. The current media thrives on tidbits leaked by Party pidgeons. It is all a part of the two Party monopoly controlling the media. The Dems and Repubs don't want other voices being heard and the media is too blind to see beyond Blue and Red.
Don't like the media's agenda? Then quit supporting it! Don't like the direction of the Country? Then quit supporting the two Political Parties that have placed us in this situation! Want more of the same? Then continue supporting the same!
The problem is lazy journalism. A lot of the crap coming down has its origins in reams of press releases generated in the boiler rooms of the parties and well heeled lobbyists.
