Quin, as much as I share your disdain for the establishment media, the problem is that they’re still there and they still have a powerful influence. The audience for Fox News is still a fraction of the audience that watches the ABC/NBC/CBS nightly news broadcasts, and the GOP cannot afford to write off the entire press corps. At some point, complaining about media bias becomes a crutch, an excuse for failure.

Ronald Reagan said, “I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.” I would argue that Republicans who take a defeatist attitude toward media bias are failing to embody Reagan’s can-do optimism. Surely, the New York Times is an adversary less formidable than the Soviet Union.
