Malcontent co-conspirator Al Kosa weighs in with an NPR anecdote. Not much of an introduction, I admit:
As a former and maybe future member of the media, I'm not a wanton press basher. At the same time, I think there is something to the "media elite" notion.
A lot of reporters are as close to middle America as Dick Cheney is to Lil' John and the Eastside Boyz. Latest example. This morning on NPR, which I generally enjoy, a reporter interviewing a guy whose web site posts overheard snippets of conversations in New York City said, "I don't watch television. What are those called? ... Sitcoms?"
Now that's someone who knows the culture.
