Or at least so far as I’ve seen:
How can you have a fair election when the media is in the tank for one party?
The emerging picture of the Journolist is that it served as a place where like-minded people who had great influence on how the media portrayed events were able to coordinate their story lines for the benefit of the Obama campaign.
We saw the media bias on the surface; the Journolistas helped frame that bias below the surface.
Congress is fond of passing campaign finance reform, but no amount of corporate (or union for that matter) campaign spending can buy the kind of advantage that a media that is a willing participant in one party’s campaign can bring.
I don’t want to shrug my shoulders and say that’s just how things are, but I don’t want to go all, “There ought to be a law” either.
What to do?
