    when they say "Liberal Media" they simply mean "More Liberal Than Fox News Media.

    Liberal Media to a wingnut means any media more liberal than the RW media he prefers. Usually Fox or something more extremely to the right of that (Glenn Beck, Brietbart, etc)

    Garbage, of course

    •  and the flip side to that is that when WE say (0+ / 0-)

      "conservative media", we mean "more conservative than progressives".

      Which of course includes virtually the entire Democratic Party.

      We progressives WANT to believe that everyone likes us, everyone agrees with us, and if we could just tell people about us they'd flock to join us and fight for the New Great Society.

      Um, t'ain't so.  We are a tiny minority view that is ignored even within our own party--and that is not because of any Great Corporate Conspiracy To Silence Us.

      The corporados have no NEED to silence progressives or liberals---nobody listens to us anyway. Not even the Dem Party, who regularly punches us with impunity. We progressives are impotent ineffectual nobodies who, in the Great American Political Sphere, simply don't matter. (shrug)

      And we'll never get airtime until that changes.
