Newsweek Blunder Breaks MSM

I think the Newsweek blunder breaks the Main Stream Media's connection with Blue State America permanently. There is no hope for recovery. Once Blue State America turns to alternative and multiple sources for its news -- including Fox News -- it will never return to the politically correct MSM. I know others have said this -- but I think the MSM's response will be to move further leftward and further toward irrationality.

The New York Times recently published new rules on anonymous sources and corroboration -- but it's too late. The NYT has already sold its journalistic soul to liberalism.

"Liberal journalism" is an oxymoron. You can't be liberal in America and still be an objective journalist. Doesn't work.

It reminds me of a funny story concerning Roger Ailes. I am paraphrasing. But, Ailes was asked what the key to success was in starting Fox News. He responded that they found a "niche" -- which represented more than half of America. Thank you, Roger.
