Wow, you're just now getting this? What did you think of the media when your guy was running rough-shod over the Constitution, needlessly embarking on pointless wars of aggression and squandering our collective futures? The media jumped the shark of relevance with regard to facts, truth and justice decades ago. Get over yourself
I don't believe that Bush "was running rough-shod over the Constitution, needlessly embarking on pointless wars of aggression and squandering our collective futures." I still support the actions of invading Iraq, Afghanistan, and water boarding.
I agree that the media "jumped the shark" as you put it, but the vast majority of people in this country don't understand that. Have you been to that website "http://howobamagotelected.com/"?
Look at where people are getting their news from! A full third are now getting it from places like the Daily Show and Late Night Shows like Letterman.
That is the whole point. The news media and the those who are 1-2 steps removed from it constantly parrot the line about how they are just independent Journos doing a job. Reporting without bias. Well I am sorry, when they ask questions of the President like "What has enchanted you the most?" and fail to follow up on grand predictions we get shit like this Spending Bill. Biden comes out and apologises for getting it wrong by saying that they "guessed" at this and nobody is running this every six minutes on the 24hr news cycle. Yet they want to pump up this ridiculous row between Palin and Letterman.
Who's John Galt.
