Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky demolish one of the central tenets of our political culture, the idea of the "liberal media." Instead, utilizing a systematic model based on massive empirical research, they reveal the manner in which the news media are so subordinated to corporate and conservative interests that their function can only be described as that of "elite propaganda."

When, was this made? It matters what time period we are talking about.  Media/entertainment definitely has a liberal bias stance nowadays.

In reality who really gives a shit if it's liberal or conservative when it comes to bias in the media. The real question is "is the media full of propaganda?" and the answer is most definitely yes.

Revolutionary Socialist Media
The mainstream media is either liberal capitalist or conservative capitalist. But there is no anti-capitalist or socialist media. This is because the media is owned by capitalists who's whole desire to make a profit. So their media outlets will never call for a socialist democracy and a economy that serves all humans not just the capitalist owners.

If it was a truly liberal media we hear about that turtle cocksucker McConnell blocking the first responders act.
