To begin with, you can't look at the mainstream media as a biased or out-of-touch entity. Instead, you have to look at the media for what it really is: a gaggle of left-wing operatives disguised as journalists who use objectivity and a near-monopoly to control the news and information-narrative all in an effort to damage the Right and promote the Left.
As we've seen since the rise of the Internet and the media criticism that has become much of its muse, the media cannot be reasoned with, made to see the error of its ways, or shamed into doing its job honestly. This is a corrupt institution and if you love your country, the only moral approach in dealing with it should be to do whatever you can to put it out of business.
And "business" is why the media fears the Supreme Court decision known as "Citizens United," a First Amendment victory that allows individuals and corporations -- through the use of the dreaded super PAC -- the right to spend as much money as they want on electioneering. Because the "business" of the media is not the dissemination of information for the public good or even commercial profit, but rather the furthering of leftist causes, what most terrifies the media is the competition for the narrative these super PACS will hopefully create.
I don't know much about Tarini Parti, the co-author of today's Koch-a-palooza feature piece at Politico, but Kenneth Vogel is one of Politico's top hatchet men. Something you won't learn on Vogel's Politico bio is that he's a former George Soros' employee, but the way in which he conducts his "journalism" sure does give that fact away.
What's especially hilarious about Vogel is that if you look at the body of his hack-work (and Twitter feed), you'll see an obvious theme develop about his utter disgust towards money in politics. And if you look at Vogel's last 10 Politico articles, you'll see that all but a few revolve around all that evil outside money benefitting the GOP. This includes today's feature piece referenced above, "Inside the Koch World," which makes it sound as though Nancy Drew and a Palin-stalking Hardy Boy just blew open the Illuminati.
