4. It's not just radio, it's magazines, blogs, the entire left-leaning media
Edited on Sun Apr-23-06 07:33 PM by WildEyedLiberal
It's as if they don't even PAY ATTENTION to what any Democrat is doing - it's always the same mantra: "Democrats have no plan, they are spineless, they do nothing" on repeat spin-cycle. It's really sad when I can pick up The Nation and National Review and read, more or less, the exact same things about Democrats in one as the other. Sad, sad, sad.

Blogs aren't a lot better. I think the terminal illness of the left-wing media/intelligentsia is this desire to look cool, hip, jaded, and cynical, and part of that means insulting Democrats, because they are "establishment" types. They'd rather ignore the good things that several Democrats do on a regular basis - Kerry, Dean, Feingold, Conyers, etc - and make broad generalizations about the "Democrats" using people like Biden, Lieberman, or Clinton.

It sort of reminds me of the American Spectator magazine saying that they LOVED when Clinton was in power because then they were able to attack him nonstop, and their sales revenue went up. I think the left-leaning media is the exact same way - they NEED something to complain about, or magazine sales will go down.
