Sometimes it’s an understatement to say journalists live in a bubble. On the one hand, they thrill over Barack Obama as “God.” Yet, on March 23, 2009, MSNBC anchor David Shuster called it a “fantasy” to say that the press was pro-Obama. Another example from This Week in Media Bias History: That time CNN founder Ted Turner created a slobbering propaganda film on the Soviet Union, a “mighty” country that “belongs to the people.”
