Insider reports the truth about the bias and death of main stream media

For years, conservatives have ranted at the obvious bias of the main stream media ignoring many stories, and providing baised propoganda for the liberal establishment in Washington.  All one has to do is remember Chris Matthews of MSNBC on Obama's election night to remember his famous words.

"It is my job to ensure that Obama succeeds."

As the destruction of the US grows economically, politically, and in all aspects of society accelerates, an insider to that very same media has finally spoken out on how they have failed America, and how that failure has led to death of the vaunted 4th estate.

Someday, cultural historians will look back on the early 21st century and speculate about what killed the credibility of America’s so-called liberal-media elite.
They will ask, Were the wounds self-inflicted or the product of a methodical plot?
Make no mistake about it. We did this to ourselves.
We’ve been out of touch with what people on the streets are thinking. The problem is twofold. We didn’t care to listen to them, and by the time we heard them we had missed the opportunity to break the story and inform the public. We were followers, not leaders.
To be objective — like everyone says the media ought to be, but seldom are — and blunt, let me post this simple question: Why should anyone believe us any more? - Marketwatch
The refreshing admission by an insider of the elite media shows just how powerful the alternative media and internet reporting is.  Americans all have an ingrained perspective, or bias themselves, and want to go to news sources that provide information they cannot find in the primary media.  That news used to be provided by the establishment, but no longer, as the death of mainstream media is forcing many in the old guard to look at themselves and realize their prostituting to money and political persuasion are the nails being driven into their own coffins.
