Liberal media still think they own the copyright to it.

The reason people are flocking to Fox is not, as Politico would have you believe, that they are aiming to reinforce their already-existing views. It’s that people recognize, in large part because Fox News has given them something to compare to, the pervasive liberal bias in the media.
Coincidentally, Gallup released a poll just a few days after the Politico poll showing that “distrust in U.S. media [has edged] up to a record high,” with a record high 57% now saying “they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.” Forty-eight percent of Americans believe the media is too liberal, tying the previous record, while only 15% believe the media is too conservative (you have to wonder who those people are.) Also, only 33% believe the media’s political leanings are “just about right”, tying the record low.
Democrats/Liberals trust the media most. Republicans/Conservatives trust it least. Even among Democrats, however, 22% think the media is too liberal with 26% thinking it’s too conservative. Among Independent and Republican voters, those numbers are 45%-15% and 76%-6%, respectively.
Only in a world where war is peace and black is white are national broadcast news or newspapers “objective” and Fox News not, but that’s the world of Ivy League journalism schools, newspaper editorial boards, and CBS’s newsroom. So when you hear the liberal media telling you, Mr. or Mrs. Fox Viewer, to tune in elsewhere for “objective” news, don’t be fooled. They’re not encouraging you to be better-informed. They’re only trying to save their own skins from your overdue recognition of the unforgiveable bias to which they’ve subjected Americans for at least the past half century.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
