Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Hey Mr. Stat- Man, play a Red Herring for me, for it's...
Ah, so Those are the rules: the ones left who buy and read a 'daily paper' -
('Course that does leave Faux news in there, along with 700 Club, Clear Channel, [1]Christian Broadcasting Corp. et al. 'Mainstream Media' = millions, right?)

And we're going to just elide them survey things which indicate just how many get their News+views Only: predigested from their fav Shouting Heads, in '05 Murica.

Point of Order, then.



[1] BTW - ya never got back to me about when you Honest mainline Christians we keep hearing about - are going to Take Back the Logo\ufffd\ufffd [??]
(Or are none of us Cleared to be let in on the plans.. as must surely be Marching
---> Onward ??)

New Well then
feel free to change any definition you like to suit your agenda.

From this day forward, Rush Limbaugh is mainstream media. Woohoo.

New Toss ya a bone and you
try to make a bludgeon -
*Point*, for the slow: it may no longer be ass-umed, re the mob and its parts -

"The Media says ___"

What DOES constitute 'their'?/an identifiable group's? main sources of ""information""?
'The Media' is as dead a concept as,
"The American People think ___"


(Who'd a thunk - after the death of Father Coughlan.. that so-called Preachers would AGAIN be spoutin around these parts, clips from '30s German speeches, as 'scripture'! AND: that being. eaten. up. by the flock.)

There are only simplistic answers this far - to these questions.
But if/when the Well IS sufficiently poisoned, I predict one thing:

Amoebic dysentery of the jelloware is a strong likelihood.
(Unless it's already here.?. and That's what suppurent jelloware Sounds Like.)

New *whack*
cavemen did use bones as clubs, dontcha know

the term "mainstream media" is used quite a bit. But more and more its being used as an inclusive term to include am talk radio and other fringe elements. While you may think it a dead concept, that concept is bouncing around quite a bit and seems (while maybe on its last breath) still to be very much alive around here.

New Well if ya buy 'Left'/Right' you'll love 'media' I guess

New I tend to agree with Peter
that our discussions are generally "right and righter still"...but around here its simpler to think in terms of right, left...since thats the "common" methodology

New Re: *whack* re Talk Radio
I neglected to mention that factoid heard en passant on NPR, from a survey whose pedigree I didn't hear. Mentioned that in #222404.

1/4 "get their 'news' via talk radio"

SInce it didn't add, "in the Ozarks" or other qualifiers ...
If there's any substance behind that report: Formally add-to-'Media' in defns. file.
