Media's real bias is towards what makes it money.
Faux News is mostly editorial presented as news and everyone just laps it up. Go watch the excellent Sidney Lumet movie Network from 1976 to understand the transformation that has occurred in media.

You (mistakenly) say media doesn't allow staff to support. How naive! Easy to tell in matter of minutes. MSNBC pushed the envelope too far. Olberman was a vicious, destructive liar. His followers syrocketed, others left in droves. Matthews thought it was cute to spout bias like Olberman, & followed in his wake. 'Ol one bad apple, spoils bunch. Williams & Brokaw got tarnished with the blatent over-the-top excesses of Olbereman & Matthews. So?Nothing has changed...they're at their mikes spewing their bias, insults,& snarky comments. Big deal, called commentators, not newscasters, they're still on preaching bias on a major network. So Fox Republican, MSNBC Democrat, CNN populist/socialist, what's one to do?
CBS & ABC Very, very biased, but plain NBC tries to get it right.

It's risky reelecting Hosterman Mayor,(Brozosky either) who would have the
swing vote for Stoneridge extension. Opportunties for corruption are huge. What quarantees would we have as a swing vote.
Once November's over, we're stuck.
I'll root for Haggerty and Dublin, until I see Stoneridge extension.
