What do you guys think?? Before it was real easy to get away with the lies. Now that we have somewhat conservitive media coverage and ways to spread the word quickly, you guys think that's a large part of the win this week? Think about it, when someone screws over a gun owner or lies about stats to move the anti agenda, there's at LEAST a hundred of us emailing and calling making our voices heard. The demo's idealist agenda along with support for extremist groups that really aren't out to help anyone can finally be exposed, in a timely matter. I really beleive if the repubs can keep themselves out of scandals and the like, I think we are going to own the house and senate for quite sometime. The dem's are seriously shooting themselves in the foot over and over. Just go over to DU and the Freepers site. You could seriously not know any of the issue's and just look for IQ levels by the quality of posts. The DU's seriously sound like a bunch of bumbaling idiots. Go over to free repubs and the quality of posts skyrockets compaired to DU. Most of the editorials are doing nothing but making fun of the GOP and "dubya". And they still stereotype conservitives as toothless hillbillies. It's absolutly great! Republic! Republic!!

Yes. Bill Clinton was helped immeasurably by the fact that most journalists in this country supported him and shared a similar ideology. The owners of the TV outlets at the time were all supporters-and contributors-of the democratic party and so only hired ideologically pure reporters. The arrival of Rupert Murdoch in the US media market, who saw no money to be gained in doing exactly the same thing as all other news outlets, and the rise of the internet undermined this control.
