The Liberal Media

Eric Alterman

Here they go again: Bigfoot media are crafting the narratives that will distort the candidates, the issues and the entire presidential campaign.

Despite what many in the media believe, the American public is interested in more than just right-wing punditry and celebrity gossip.

Will Rupert Murdoch's play to own and operate the Wall Street Journal have a silver lining for liberals?

What do the Washington Post --and the rest of the MSM--have against Al Gore?

Thanks to the potty-mouths of Bush and Cheney, we've won the right to accidentally curse on the public airwaves. Now, what about all the networks' intentional antisocial behavior?

The New York Sun's alleged success is a figment of its conservative owners' imaginations.

If we are ever to solve the Israel/Palestinian conflict, learning each other's historical narratives is surely the place to begin.

Liberals prefer to ignore that when it comes to verbal violence, white radio shock jocks are given the same pass as gangsta rappers.
