Well, I've already broken my vow of not reading the political blogs, and after just a few minutes of reading I'm close to Howard Beale territory.
So let me get this straight - conservative bloggers (to be fair, let's say many of them) believe that Mainstream Media is driving this election. Among the phrases I've read today are "as the media goes, so goes the public," and "...our gatekeepers in Big Media..."
In essence, then, aren't those bloggers and pundits saying that people are stupid? That they're just too naive or dumb to make discriminating judgments about what they see on TV or read in the paper? And these are the people who accuse Barack Obama of being elitist?
Sorry, but it's enough to piss off the good humor man.
