My favorite analogy about the LameStreamMedia is that the former Soviet Union was a very poor country. They could only afford 2 state propaganda organs: Pravda and Izvestia. In Russian Pravda means "Truth" and Izvestia is loosely translated as "The News". The running joke in the Soviet Union was: There is no truth in Pravda and there is no news in Izvestia.
We are a very wealthy country... We have 6 major propaganda organs.
