Shocker: Public Confidence in Media Reaches 30 Year Low

I'd like to claim that bloggers and internet newshounds had something to do with that.

The truth, however, is that they did it to themselves.

To extend the Watergate analogy-- a gift that just keeps on giving -- they gave us the sword with which to stab them, and we all collectively drove it home with relish.

I have come not to praise the liberal media, but to bury it.

At some point the mainstream media is going to have to twig on to the fact that it actually isn't so very "mainstream" at all. They are entitled to their opinions; but they're not entitled to continue insisting they speak for a nation which increasingly looks at them like some sort of pot-smokin', hot-tubbin', wife-swappin' tick on the national underbelly.

Is it wrong to allege that an entire class of professionals engages in pot-smokin' and wife-swappin'?

Well-- I have "unimpeachable sources" who've passed me vigorously-authenticated documents which "raise serious questions" about the media's preference for tokin' ganj and gettin' the occasional dose of a little strange.

PS: Obviously, I'm really hoping for that appearance on Paula Zahn. Fingers crossed!
