      I've been adding to my knowledge for awhile and there is a lot on it. One of the things Nixon promoted in the early 70's was a book on the liberal media. Agnew had a comment about the press that went viral: 'the nattering nabobs of negativity'. Don't remember the title, it was by a woman and thoroughly refuted by several professionals. Repetition by the RW kept it alive and they built on it. I am pretty certain Eric Boehlert covered that in Lapdogs: How the Press Rolled Over for Bush.

      This broadcast, 42 years later, is really wonderful. I've been using BBC and AJE for years - didn't get an HDTV since I don't watch much of anything else.

      Unfortunately I've got too much on the plate right now to add anything. I suspect as you start reading some of that, you will find plenty more. It ties very much to the 1 % who push elected officials into maintaining the MIC and the empire as well.
