Great analogy and your take on the MSM/Dim partnership is right on IMO. I'll ask another question if you don't mind ;^): Will conservatives ever have preeminence in media the left has now? Are conservatives even interested in assuming that role? Since there appears to be a vacuum forming in the MSM, something is going to change, but what that change might be I haven't a clue.

I doubt it. I think that MSM journalism is, was, and will be calibrated to prevent that. "Talk radio" is actually journalism which doesn't make the arrogant claim to objectivity. But "objective" journalism presumably will always make itself sufficiently believable to enough people to prevent conservatives from taking over the MSM.
Of course you know my favored solution to that conundrum:
