The Terrible News Industry

I subscribe to and read many blogs from all over the political spectrum.

Many blogs write¬†“How terrible the American news industry is,” e.g., Erick Erickson. Mr. Erickson also says, “No one trusts the media and the industry insiders who make the calls.”

I’m confused. Isn’t Erick Erickson or anyone else (in whatever part of the political spectrum) part of the media? If they’re writing how bad the news is, aren’t they to blame?

A more likely explanation for these folks is that they wish more people agreed with them and are upset at reality.
