MSM Requiem

OpinionJournal - Peggy Noonan:
"The MSM rose because it had a monopoly on information. The networks, newspapers and magazines were a Liberal Monolith. In one of his 'Making of the President' books the liberal but ingenuous Teddy White famously said of 57th Street in Manhattan that when he stood there he was within a stone's throw of all the offices in which all of American media was busily churning out its vision of The News. Churning it out were a relatively small group of a few hundred liberals who worked and mostly lived on an island off the continent; they told that continent not only what it should be thinking about but how it should be thinking of it. (I think the New York Times unconsciously echoes this old assumption in their television commercials in which an earnest, graying, upscale dunderhead says the New York Times surrounds a story and gives him new ways to think about it. Doesn't it just?)"

Thank goodness the SMSM is finally being challenged. I feel like I'm watching the X-Files -- "The Truth is Out There". It is out here. It's on the web.
