I've been looking at the Dick Morris site today. He thinks Obama will muzzle Fox and right wing radio.

All media is biased, but the bias is wide ranging and covers a broad spectrum of political beliefs.

Its NOT a perfect bell curve and you know it. Furthermore, in the last 3 years the media has been giving up even any pretense of professionalism and impartiality and is running full force into outright advocacy.

And I dont have much problem with that as long as

1. They dont lie and pretend they dont have a bias

and

2. The government STAYS OUT of it.

I didn't say it was a perfect bell curve.  I just wanted to point out that just about every view point is represented if you look a little bit.  Some are easier to find (and in greater numbers) than others.

I agree on your other points.
