News media's credibility plunges to new low, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. Funny that they interview a NY Times editor and he blames blogs and talk radio. Big surprise. Of course, the actual dollars spent tell a different story, as the NY Times' revenues and subscriptions have plunged as they have continued to push their partisan viewpoints as mainstream news. But the public is on to their shenanigans now, as the Van Jones takedown illustrates. Stories don't have to be covered on major TV news outlets or major print outlets, and they still blow up and cause controversy. Van Jones wouldn't have been pushed out if that wasn't the case, as all those major outlets did their best to ignore the story. The people are taking back the production and proliferation of the news from the corporate supported oligarchy. And news consumers are listening to multiple sides of a story from several sources and making the decision on whom to believe themselves, not letting a talking head tell them what to believe. Look for this trend to continue, with good results for America.
