Kentucky Today called out liberal bias against conservatives in the news media. They go on to say " until now, there was nothing that [conservative politicians] could do about it. Social media has evened the playing field so that politicians can strike back. Journalists covering politics have been able to write what they want anytime they want about anyone they want without serious repercussions for a very long time. It has been like shooting fish in a barrel. But that has changed with the advent of social media. Now the fish are shooting back. Some in Kentucky’s journalism ranks are crying foul, or at least crying. But the shifting paradigm could do much to strengthen the news industry." Ky Today is right on target! Social media has taken away the liberal news media's monopoly.
