    TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, etc. -- is dependent for its existence/profitability on advertising.

    Most advertisers are businesses owned and/or managed by conservatives who want less regulation and lower taxes on business owners/managers.

    So, most media support the political wishes of their advertising masters.

    This happens at every level -- from the national networks who  pimp for Wall Street to the local newspapers who pimp for the local chamber of commerce.

    And it's getting worse every day.

    A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
