You want to know why the main stream media has shifted so far to the right....

Just look at the demographics.

The people who still watch the network news are 50 plus while the cable news channel skew the same.

Just look at what they advertise and you will get a real good idea of who watches this crap.

Is it any wonder that the market dictates the message? Give the watchers what they want.

MrsWCGreen was kind enough to bring me granola bars, vitamin waters and crackers and peanut butter to get through the crappy food.

I remember when I was in the hospital in Columbus I would order pizzas to be delivered to my room that I shared with another bed, sometimes full, sometimes empty.
