Wishful thinking on right-wing media domination

Perhaps I'm really, very, very left like Chris Bowers, though I don't think so.

But when Digby says,

The mainstream media are, for the first time in memory, being pulled by both sides of the ideological spectrum. And maybe, just maybe, we might just save them in spite of themselves.

I gotta say, Digby, you don't know your history.

Even in the salad days of liberalism, media never reported anything adverse to their owners' interests.

And it wasn't just since the 90s that the media bent over to the right side.

I remember the media being merciless against Jimmy Carter, whom they painted as "liberal" oftentimes, but who wound up being way to cautious and conservative.

No, we're going to be in this for a while. At least until somebody acquires the power to pull the plug.
