    Anyone who would base an essay on the concept that journalists have EVER been neutral guardians of discourse, in the U.S. or elsewhere, is inhaling and holding too long and too often.  From the first broadsheets right up to the present internet news, journalists have picked sides, individually or in gaggles, and propagandized.  That's truth, and it should be no surprise, except to the very young or the very stoned.

      also wrong on journalists. Might I suggest that you not paint with such a broad brush. Although true that some may have picked sides, as you call it, it is also true that there is a strong history of true independent investigatory journalism. Our current problems started when news became entertainment. Talking heads talk to hear themselves talk with little thought to anything but their own agenda and I guess their corporate overlords don't want them stating the the truth about Romney's lies for the variety of reasons that have been discussed here and other places.

      If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
