Noam & Friends

It's a little known fact that for conservatives who regard themselves as well-educated, the mere mention of Noam Chomsky is sufficient to give them heartburn. So, when a thoughtful reader provided the link to this clip I had to post it right away. An interesting aspect of this piece is that it focuses mostly on disproving the liberal media bias myth. It would be almost as easy to demonstrate a strong anti-liberal (not neoliberal) bias in corporate owned media. This has changed in recent years, from a bias in favor of center-right to far-right viewpoints. When Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is the most liberal voice on a talk-show panel, then you know our situation is desperate.

Isn't YouTube great? There's a bunch of good clips available with Bill Moyers talkng about this subject.

Now that Olbermann has left, the wingnuts' strawman arguments about the leftist media are even weaker! The Overton Window has moved so far that Michael Bloomberg is now "liberal" fer crissakes!
