The Press, The Military, and The Public.
The Pew Research Center has a new survey (via Daly Thoughts) on public perceptions of the media. By a 2-to-1 ratio, Americans believe the media are politically biased. Ratings of believability also stand at record lows for the print media, local television media, and national television media, alike.
Note the partisan differences, but also note that perceptions of the media have gotten more negative across party lines.
People clearly want a free and fair media to serve as a watchdog over the goings-on in society and in government, but it's also clear that Americans are feeling increasingly uneasy about the media's complicity in the slander and libel of our nation's armed forces.
If the media don't take note, and shape up, their precipitous decline will only continue.
Michelle Malkin explains:
The MSM has been left in the dust by milbloggers and alternative media. Who needs the NYT with far superior reportage and analysis from the likes of Austin Bay, Michael Yon, Mudville Gazette, Blackfive, Belmont Club, and Victor Davis Hanson--for starters--available at your fingertips?
The media's lackadaisical, biased, sensationalistic reporting on the situation in Iraq has opened up the floodgates for bloggers, many of whom have better sources, better expertise, and a better perspective than the establishment media. Not only that, but many bloggers are gathering primary source data on the situation, in theater, while the media seem to chase flavor-of-the-week anti-administration innuendoes around the halls of the Pentagon.

Hello!...The NBC Today Show is so biased and left! I refuse to watch it anymore! I think Katie was wearing black to morn George W. Bush's election for quite a while!...Katie really has a fondness for Hillary that goes way beyond the call of duty!

The "abuse at Gitmo" canard is like a samurai sword that the MSM is using to disembowel itself. Any credibility they might have had left is bleeding away before their eyes.

Cindy, I didn't see but I've heard that Matt Lauer doing the greatest American bit to Ronald Reagan really put her on tilt.

Hoodlumman...Did that "Excellent" comment kind of have a Mr. Burns kind of feel? OR...is it just me?
