Why Does the Media Hate Social Security?

Peter Hart of FAIR tried to answer this question the other night on the Majority Report, but I have yet to hear an entirely satisfactory answer to this question. It reall is the case that 95% of what you hear/read about social security just makes you stupider about the topic. Big chunks of reporting are flat out wrong, and most of the rest is incredibly misleading, and at times just incomprehensible gibberish which is internally contradictory. This is one issue where I think it is completely inarguable that the "liberal media" is almost entirely united against the program.

I've asked this before, but I still really don't know the answer. Why do they hate social security?
