You make excellent points. However, State-run media sets the tone. For example: Obama calls them “corpseman” — State-run media? No big deal.
Bush refered to nuclear as “nucular” and I heard about that on every State-run media outlet for days.
See what I mean - - state run media sets the template.
Again -- for whom? You and I, and the majority of tax-paying voters in this country? I think not.
They only set the tone inside their own liberal echo chamber, which most adults have tuned out.
