Mainstream Media could use a bailout like the auto industry

Media conspiracy theories abound. I get tons of e-mails from people who are convinced that the Mainstream Media are trying to hide the fact that Barack Obama was born in Kenya and is therefore ineligible to become president. I am not going to discuss that. I would have my press credentials revoked — I would have to pay to go to sporting events! — if I were to confirm that story.

But I'm here today to warn you about something else: The Mainstream Media are closely monitoring the proposed bailout of the auto industry because we want to be next, and we recognize certain parallels between the auto industry and ourselves. Mainly, we are both unpopular. Secondly, we can both make a certain tenuous claim that our survival is linked to the national interest.
