The Liberal Media

Eric Alterman

A mighty train of change is coming to Washington: will the insider establishment hop aboard?

All evidence to the contrary, mainstream media continue to frame election issues with discredited right-wing assumptions.

Politics ain't beanbag, but the thuggishness of McCain and Palin and their conservative media enablers have infected our political discourse.

That McCain and Palin actually have a shot at the White House gives one pause contemplating the future of this country.

John McCain is determined to lie his way into the White House, and pundits and reporters are doing everything they can to enable that strategy.

Nothing short of a divine thunderbolt will get Obama's message through to the brain-dead media establishment.

Dana Milbank's coverage of Obama in the Washington Post has become a symbol of a press corps that is almost as the Bush Administration.

While some of America's smartest and most civic-minded people are trying to save daily newspapers, the media moguls who can make a difference seem to be completely off their rockers.
