2. Most media is now part of a propaganda machine.
If the issue is Republican vs. Democrat (forget about anything left of Democrat), the media go Republican.

And, if no Republican interest is involved, the media go establishment, which since 2008, has been the Obama administration.

The only exception that I can think of is MSNBC, which was Republican while Bush was riding high, but became increasingly New Democrat/pro=Obama. There are still some Republicans in there, though, earlier in the day. Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, etc.

I mentioned Bolton only because this is an article on Rice's alleged personality flaws as ambassador to the UN, and he was supposedly as abrasive and unpersonable as they come.
