There's silliness and hypocrisy among many liberals and moderates who constantly attack rightwing media yet say nothing about the gross liberal bias in MSM and on cable news shows like MSNBC. MSNBC spews more hardcore propaganda from the Left than Fox does from the Right, and shows like Martin Bashir's and Al Sharpton's are total jokes -- they are pure propaganda, and, what makes it worse, they are terribly uninteresting and uninspired.
The propaganda on the Left comes from the President on down. Obama has quit governing and is on a propaganda mission with the MSM riding shotgun. It's the final nail in the media coffin. Hardly anyone believes the reporting from the MSM -- the Leftist partisans love the political strategy, and the Right roll their eyes. Media has become an arm of the State and does the government's bidding when it comes to defending the political realm over the economic realm, and the public over the private. Liberals should be up in arms regarding the media, because a free and independent press has always been a major part of liberalism.
Liberal principles are no longer a part of modern liberalism. What can we make of that? An illiberal liberalism? It's time to reassess our labeling system.
