  •  Advertisers v. controversy (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    At one point you note that media outlets are reducing their willingness to tackle controversial topics for fear of alienating advertisers.  

    For journalists in the Village, I think a key reason for not taking sides is the laziness and cowardliness of the journalists (not willing to risk "access" to politicians if they offend them).  

    The good news on advertisers is that the blade cuts two ways:  Flush Rush is reducing the Limbaugh program's advertising base by exposing advertisers to the content they are supporting, and they have been pulling back.
