Real Clear Politics

Real Clear Politics has an excellent post on the failure of the old media. There's something wrong with the permanent link to the post. But it you click on the title of this post and then locate the post at or near the top entitled OLD MEDIA FAILING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BADLY from February 27th, you can read it.

T. Bevan cites several newspapers and their failure to cover the good news coming out of Iraq in balance with the horrific violence they prefer to play up.

As T. Bevan quotes Thomas Sowell of The Baltimore Sun
This kind of journalism can turn victory into defeat. Kept up long enough, it can even end up with real defeat, when support for the war collapses at home and abroad.

Bevan goes on to point out that alternative media are providing the much needed outlet for that balance. That's why I think this link is important to share with more readers.
Please read the whole thing.
