    While the struggling Obama/Pelosi economy is certainly a factor, the LMSM continues to pay a horrific and well deserved price for being the mouthpiece for the Obama Administration.

    Coupled with CNN's decline, well, I'm tap dancing at the LMSM slow motion economic suicide!

    Notice anything about the list below?

    They don't call it the Lamestream Media for nothin. Just look at how these same Liberal Media hacks are covering the Left's violent protests in Arizona. They're actually throwing rocks at Arizona Police Officers' heads for God's sake. These hacks worked 24/7 on trying to dig up just one "Violent" Tea Party protester out of Millions. They never did find that one "Violent" protester either. Now they're trying to spin how "Peaceful" their fellow Leftist protesters are in Arizona. The Liberal Media cannot be trusted. It really is that simple. People have gotten to be pretty savvy on finding alternative news sources. The Liberal Media is dead...And that's a good thing for America.

    Newspaper in general is a dying medium, though it's interesting to see that the WSJ is up, if only slightly.

    Have to agree. I like to watch my local news, and the newscasters are awesome ... but Katie Couric is more than I can stand. And she's the best of the lot of them. :eek:

    The LMSM is independent of readers and viewers, is that what you mean by "independent"?

    The Lamestream Media is controlled by the two major political parties. There is no independent MSM. Just about all of today's "Journalists" are mere lackeys & shills for the two political parties. They may claim they're independent but they know who they work for in the end. Just look at NBC for example. They are a GE-controlled Media entity and are very close to this current administration. It's no coincidence that NBC is always pushing for a "Green" economy and cheerleading for this President's policies. GE stands to make $Billions off this possibly coming "Green" economy. Almost all of NBC's on-air personalities are hardcore Leftists. This is certainly no coincidence. In fact i feel that the GE/White House relationship should be thoroughly investigated. There is no independence in the accepted MSM. You really do have to search hard for alternative news sources. Keep searching though. Happy Hunting.
