The Irrelevancy of Corporate Media

Glenn Greenwald provides further evidence of the irrelevancy of the beltway punditocracy. This would be why corporate media's influence is waning. Nobody buys what they are selling except for the Bush 30-percenters, who don't watch the Sunday talking heads anyway. All the "serious" journalists do is regurgitate Republican talking points an hour at a time. The media set basically listens to Karl Rove and his minions, and talks to itself. The only people who pay attention are others in the beltway media elite, whose heads bobble away in agreement with every utterance, and liberal bloggers who seek to call them on their fact-free reporting.
