The news media is now loathed in the same way banks, tobacco companies, and health insurance companies are, and it refuses to understand this. Mistakes like WMDs are a problem, but the media's biggest issue is exactly its bubble-ness, and clubby inability to respond to criticism in any way except to denounce it as misinformation and error.
The public is not stupid. It sees that companies like CNN and NBC are billion-dollar properties, pushing shows anchored by big-city millionaires ...
Media companies run by the country's richest people can't help but project the mindset of their owners, and they are naturally incompetent when it comes to viewing their own role in society ... The public sees through this with ease. The press is completely in denial about this.
