Control of the Media

Before the 2004 elections, I took an informal survey at my place of work. I asked people which political party they thought controlled the media, then asked them which political party they most closely identified with.

Without a single exception, the people who identified with the right thought the media was controlled by the left. People who identified with the left unanimously thought it was controlled by the right. There was one centrist, and he believed that both sides were well represented.

I did a little research on the subject (on the 'net), but couldn't find strong arguments in either direction.
