It never fails that the Republicans run against the media and the Democrats run against America. The Democrats fail to understand that constantly appealing to the UN, touring Germany, and never being proud of America does mean that you are not quite putting country first and will be perceived as unpatriotic. The Republicans always fail to understand that they will never get a conservative media as long as they continue to ruthlessly pound the media. Although I have to admit it is funny to watch the media get offended and write cranky thing and say cranky things. Every time Tom Brokaw says that he and his colleagues will "try to get by" it makes me laugh. Especially since you can tell he is serious.
