It's Not Liberal Bias If You're Got No Liberals - the Media Then & Now

Like a made-to-order follow-up to my thoughts on media bias and how the Internet has helped even things up, NPR's On the Media has a wonderful segment on health care reform then and now, called "Rewrite".

The focus is on the differing media environments and the absence in the Nineties of a liberal response mechanism to the "republican echo-chamber". That was one of the reasons that Hillary Care eventually failed. Thanks in part to the rise of the blogosphere, things are far different now.
