    They'll continue to brainwash those that still wish to be brainwashed but those with half a brain will begin to see through their agenda and the Media will have forgotten THEIR main purpose. Making money. IF it bleeds it leads doesnt follow anymore. If its true then people will buy it. The internet, talk radio, etc is killing the newspapers in grabbing an audience. Alittle more financial loss and they might start to realize that maybe the truth is the hot thing to sell now and not their version of the truth.

    This columnist looked at one newspaper and made a generalization to the entire mainstream media. That's poor analysis.

    Did anybody here listen to NPR last week? Everyday they devoted lead time on all their general news programs to the Iraqi Constitution. NPR enjoys more listeners than the Post does readers. Simply looking at one other source blows a hole in this guys argument.

    Nope, you are the one going on one source. Check out the major dailies and MSM coverage-that is what he is writing about. :lame2:

    The only example used in the article is the Washington Post. Did you even read the column?

    I love how you argue through emoticons. It's all the rage among middle schoolers.

    Sorry, you just cannot read and you are NOT a middle schooler. Yet you are quite quick to try to be witty. :coffee3:
