I'm not sure how much it changes the world, but one victory over the past few years has been that "mainstream" journalists no longer pretend, quite as much as they did before, that this absurd news network is "fair and balanced." For a long time the line was that, yes, they had their prime time lineup of opinion, but the news was "unbiased" or whatever. That was always absurd, but they clung to it for whatever reasons.

It isn't that I have any problem with ideological news outlets, I just had a problem with the supposedly non-ideological outlets pretending that they weren't.
