Now We Know Why the Media Supports Bush

Drudge links to a story relating that Dan Rather claimed there is a climate of fear running through newsrooms today worse than anything he’s ever seen. He largely attributes this alleged intimidation of journalists to the ability of politicians to pressure the conglomerates that own broadcast networks.

Well, we finally have found the answer to the great question all of us have been asking for the past five years – why are the mainstream TV networks lockstep in support of the Bush Administration agenda? From the War in Iraq to the administration’s reaction to Katrina, Rather has now revealed why news anchors are no longer willing to criticize the president.

You have to love Rather and his ludicrous portrait of trembling, panic-stricken journalists. He’s really become a caricature of himself.
