61. KR - Role of media is to lobby for their corporate sponsors, not public service.
Journalism is 100% dead and rotting in the ground, replaced by a new breed of corporate shillery.

Philadelphia Inquirer hired John Yoo as permanent staff. GE, Health care, investment banks, oil companies pay big cash to advertise, they demand a return on their investment. All these companies would appoint Cheney and Bush (or their clones) as leaders for life.

The media has no better way to pull in more cash than to torture us at the behest of their sponsors. They are just following orders.
