News media has been blindly partisan since there's been news media. What you need is a citizenry who can identify that- and to be honest, I feel that fears over how stupid Americans are concerning these things are vastly overstated. If they weren't, and the "Mainstream Media'' were indeed as leftward as many here claim, would that not also mean that the citizenry would be equally leftward? I don't know... I just have a hard time swallowing that it's as bad as everyone claims.
