    the bipartisan hatred for the political media. Chances are, approximately 99.9999% of Republicans who dislike the media would cite, as their first reason, that it's "too liberal." That impression is part of what has led to some of the contemporary press' most notable information pathologies, like false balance. So paradoxically, the more hated they are, the more likely they are to get worse at the things that piss liberals off about them.
