The Internet has changed many things, including the way we get our information, or mis-information; and there's the rub. The plethora of blogs and sites dedicated to alternative media don't have the same scrutiny or obligations as the main media. So, for the time being at least, or until some form of 'regulation' pervades alternative media, our society will continue to give more weight to the CH or Specs of this world.
That's not to say that the alternative media isn't entertaining or just has to be extra discerning.

It also struck me as ironic; that when Kuruc spoke of the 'missed' story of the building's collapse on King William; and suggested the real story-the political role in the collapse- he committed the same media bias he accused the Spec of having. Kuruc's slant is no more the entire story than the Spec's; they are just different perspectives. So, once again it is up to the consumer (reader/viewer) of the news to understand the bias and form his/her own opinion!
