    is not that the media is liberal, but that the Democrats largely aren't. The mainstream of the Dem party is serving the same crony capitalist thugs that the GOP are.
    That's why we need to evict the blue dogs and replace them with real progressives, whether they be Dem, Green, or other.

      The reason conservative ideas and frames dominate politics is because both parties are conservative.

      But you are incorrect about one thing---I am not arguing that the media is liberal.  I am arguing that they are utterly amoral and sell us whatever we want to buy.  If we want to hear liberal views, they'll give them to us; if we want to hear conservative views, they'll give them to us--hell if we want to hear NAZI views, they'll give them to us. They don't give a rat's ass, as long as we watch the corn flake commercials they sell ad time for.
