Asymmetrical warfare

Keith Olbermann attacks Bill O'Reilly.

Bill O'Reilly attacks the business of Keith Olbermann's bosses.

MSNBC sues for peace.

Fox is ideologically aligned with O'Reilly.

MSBNC is ideologically aligned with ... profits.

There is no journalistic alignment between liberal management and liberal content that matches Fox's alignment of conservative management and conservative content.

The New York Times? Don't make me laugh. Here's the pussy-footed way the Times characterizes O'Reilly: "conservative-leaning".

Yes, I'm aware that O'Reilly characterizes himself that way, but he's obviously a full-on wingnut propagandist, and only the modern big media could sweep that fact under the tattered, bullshit-stained rug of so-called balance.
