“Media abundance … has meant more room for right-of-center viewpoints that, while popular with many Americans, the critics find completely unacceptable. The fact that Bill O’Reilly gets better ratings than Bill Moyers perturbs them to no end. It’s just not fair. …
“When Rush Limbaugh has more listeners than NPR, or Tom Clancy sells more books than Noam Chomsky, or Motor Trend gets more subscribers than Mother Jones, liberals want to convince us (or themselves, perhaps) that it’s all because of some catastrophic market failure or a grand corporate conspiracy to dumb down the masses.

“Putting partial birth abortion in quote marks is a little like referring to break-in thefts as ‘the activity that opponents call “burglary.” ‘ …
“It’s time for the media to drop the ideological agenda and start using the perfectly clear, descriptive term, partial-birth abortion.”
— Robert H. Knight, writing on “Drop the Scare Quotes — Call It Partial-Birth Abortion,” Friday for the Culture and Media Institute at www.cul ture-andmediainstitute.org
“One question that should be asked following the massacre of the innocents in Virginia is where on earth did the media find so many social workers, child psychologists and pop philosophers and how were they able to utter such complete rubbish for so long? …
