The Nation - "Banned From TV on Conventional Wisdom's Holy Day, Ornstein and Mann Briefly Return"
Here is a nice article on the Nation noting how Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann have been declared non-entities for pointing out that the corporate media has been protecting Republicans by portraying a false equivalence between Democrats and the modern extreme right Republicans:
It was a small victory in the battle against false equivalency in the media: pundits Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann were on a Sunday morning talk show.

1. Ornstein and Mann Are Missing A Larger Point
A good percentage of the media, print and broadcast, is owned by Rupert Murdoch. There are only so many jobs, and his empire has about 30% of them between Fox News, Fox Business News, the Wall Street Journal, etc.
These "journalists" are more concerned about their future career prospects than they are about telling the truth. Any real journalist has no chance whatsoever of working for Murdoch's empire.
