the right wing bias of media monopolies

I am knee deep in grading papers and I don't have nearly enough time to read or write a decent blog....but thought I might share this link to a story I saw today on Truth Out that addresses what I consider to be one of the nation's biggest problems: the lack of accountability for truth-telling in the mainstream media.

Listening to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck complaining about the mainstream media is like hearing a joke you already know the punch line to. They ARE the main stream media!

C'mon folks! there's one "liberal" paper left in America, the New York Times.

The Fairness Doctrine was rescinded by the Reagan administration back in the early 1980s and ever since, the mainstream media's been drifting farther and farther to the right. Increasingly, media outlets are falling into the hands of large (bottom-line oriented) corporations. This article should be a wake up call to everyone! More to chew on soon!
