1. This is why people who are literate in our political system

have a poor view towards mainstream media.

8. It comes down to the specific medium, subject and reporter.

There are very good journalists and very good journalism out there, and the MSM are the ones with the budgets to produce it -- when they choose.

Anyone who cuts "MSM," which are certainly infiltrated by special interests, from their sources will end up as ignorant as those who listen only to Fox. The trick is to identify reliable sources from lying ones in the same journals.

9. Yea

Of course not, I didn’t intend to speak in absolutes. There are good journalists in the “MSM” but like you mentioned, special interest groups and parent companies will prevent them from asking tough follow up questions or even reporting on the issue all together.
I listen to both independent and MSM but I prefer independent media.

10. Agree with following both. Certainly, differentiating between "analysis" pieces

and those reporting facts developed through investigative journalism that are then reported in reputable journals is also critical. The Russ Douhat and Michael Gerson types are "analysts," of course, at their least dishonest constantly purveying a fake equivalence that assures the world the Democrats are just as bad as the Republicans.
