I have to disagree with you, I dont believe our current administration has any power of any elite media at this time. The elite media is probably
considered an enemie to the Bush administration. Of course if you look at the big picture, lots of people dont like the Bush administration so you can
almost get away saying the people dictate the tone of the Bush Admin in the media. I myself believe it to be a little bit of both, there is a clear
cut bias in the media, especially when something like Joe Biden is overlooked entirely. I realize Palin is a jucie steak right now, but Biden could
have been put on B3 or slipped into a forum set somehwhere.
I do however believe that the same problem we are having in the elite media, (paper and tv) we are having the oppisite in talk radio, and talk
shows, for the Republicans. Radio is clearly doing just the opp. of what tv and print is doing. Its clear to see that they do this to try to lvl the
playing field and get out information that the right felt was not being given fair air time. As an objective viewer to this I believe though the right
side has had a far worse time in the media then the left, as to wether that is contributed to bias in media or just to the fact that stories that need
to be told are negative toward Republican is still unclear. However facts that I have researched show strong bias.
