The Press

The Press is Trump’s Enemy, Not The Left’s Friend | Ian Welsh:
The media works for its owners. As of 2000, 80% of US media was owned by six companies, and that number is higher now.  The media serves the interests of the people who own it and anyone else’s only incidentally and insofar as those interests don’t contradict the owners. Furthermore and this point almost all journalists and editors in American media are Ivy League grinders.

My take is along those lines.

The press isn't really left-wing, regardless of what the Fox Propaganda Network says,  It's just not very good at its job, informing the public. It's a  corporate-controlled, Ivy-League led, establishment-focused, institution that's designed to make money for it's owners. Anything outside it's bubble is ignored or destroyed.
