An Illustration of the State of our Media

The Balloon Juicers have a tag called Our Failed Media Experiment, and they don't just mean FoxNews and hate radio.

Sometimes it seems a little hysterical. Other times …

Checkout rack: Globe: 'Obama is Muslim!' next to Time: 'Is America Islamophobic?'

A big part of why we're in the mess we're in is that the wingnut media makes ever more insane claims and the so-called liberal media responds by asking, "Is there anything to this? Maybe not, but to be safe, we should say the truth lies somewhere in the middle."

[Added] On a related note (via), why is Rudy Giuliani of all people being asked to be on "Meet the Press?"
