    I wonder how those numbers shake out if you pull Fox out of the equation. You'd be effectively turning back the clock to the days of the LMM monopoly on discourse - that thing that acludem says never existed. I think these would be some telling statistics.

    "Between 1985 and 2004...the number of Americans who felt that news organizations were politically biased rose from 49 per cent to 59 per cent."

    Praise be to God - we're LEARNING!

    I doubt that many remember The Chicago Daily News. It was a 'moderate' paper with a balance of liberal and conservative columnists. Had a very good foreign news bureau. Commentary/Opinion was held at the columists/editorial pages.

    Chicago Tribune became more like the Daily News when the latter folded. I guess in the progression from conservative towards moderate, it gained momentum and is now vying with the NYTimes for liberal.

    I wonder how the irrepressible Royko would have fared in these crazy times.
