No matter what you call the mainstream media (the “old media,” the “state-run media,” etc.), it has to be admitted that those who comprise it have a vested interest in preserving an outdated, and dangerous, liberal establishment in this country. To that end, members of the mainstream media not only present the news in half-truths that make conservatism and conservatives look bad, they also do (and say) whatever they have to do in order to make liberals look good.
In this way, they have actually become an extension of the liberal-most portions of the Democrat Party.
For example, just think of how they vilified Republican candidates Christine O’Donnell in Delaware and Joe Miller in Alaska during last the recent elections. Because both candidates were true conservatives, the media was quick to pounce on them and prove them unfit for office, in an effort to dissuade voters from supporting them.
On the other hand, think about how members of the mainstream media are now carrying water for Chicago Mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel: a liberal candidate who may not even be a legal resident of Chicago and who, while serving as President Obama’s Chief of Staff, may have pushed for the passage of Stimulus legislation in order to increase his own personal wealth.
