Victor Davis Hanson has some thoughts in an NR corner post about the media in this day and age.
It bears a read.
The larger point is that the average person, getting his 'news' from Sean Hannity, is getting a much fairer recount of what is happening, coupled as it is, with the up front knowledge that Hannity has a particular point of view.
That The NY Times and WaPo try to conceal their biases while shading the news has hurt them by diminishing their credibility.
These media outlets have done this to themselves.
