one of the things i find interesting about this is that it is something that moves from the left to the right. when i was in school we learned about media bias and the analysis and critique all came from the left. this was because the media were seen to serve power as part of the system of control, censorship, propaganda and perception-management. this all still holds but the sense of who holds power has shifted towards the @vimothy position. that is to say the elite are liberal. vimothy created this shift single-handedly on mostly ignored dissensus posts. amazing when you think about it.
