The hue and cry about media bias is a joke. Here in 2012 95% of Americans can get whatever media bias they want from whatever source they want anytime they want.
I don't think it's a joke at all. While it's true that there are good conservative news sources these days, the so-called mainstream news sources that are criticized grew out of the era when, as Cleveland said, journalists were experimenting with non-biased reporting and still enjoy a lingering, but now-undeserved reputation as such. The cries about media bias are important to break these partisan outfits away from their obfuscating reputation for objectivity. When people start accepting the fact that the New York Times is no more reliably objective than Breitbart, the job will be done.
