    "Both sides complain, so they must be objective" is an intellectually lazy answer.

    I have no doubt that many within the corporate media try to be objective, but it's pretty hard to be objective about corporate power when one's paycheck depends on it.  There's also the groupthink among the corporate beltway media, a product of cocktail circuits with corporate lobbyists and other assorted millionaires.  And of course all the news personalities are millionaires, which further complicates their ability to be objective.

    Then there's Fox News, which exists to disseminate propaganda.  News Corpse and Media Matters are just two of many organizations which have documented this fact.  I'm busy making dinner so I'm not going to try to convince you that Fox News isn't librul, you'll have to do that yourself if you have any intellectual honesty.
