Societies Media Parasites

    The definition says it all and apparently more Americans are waking up to the fact.
    Pew Poll: 27 Percent Say Journalists Contribute Little or Nothing to Society
      The share of the public saying that journalists contribute a lot to society is down 10 percentage points, from 38 percent in 2009 to 28 percent in 2013.  The drop is particularly pronounced among women (down 17 points)...

      The decline in public views about journalists’ contribution to society since 2009 is more pronounced among women than men. Roughly three-in-ten women (29%) say journalists contribute a lot to society’s well-being, down 17 percentage points from 46% in 2009. Men’s views on this are about the same today as they were in 2009.

      The decline in the perceived contribution of journalists cuts across partisan leanings, age and education level. Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents as well as Republicans and Republican-leaning independents all are less likely to say journalists contribute a lot to society’s well-being today (down 8 points among Republicans/leaning Republicans and 10 points among Democrats/leaning Democrats).
Since the liberal/commie media's cheerleading for the ascension of Obama during the last 2 presidential elections they've pretty much openly abdicated their role as watchdogs of the government to expose cronyism and corruption. Because the media has become pretty corrupt itself. 
The way the liberal/commie media covers for Obama and his administration is so obvious it's nauseating.
Again I'll let the definition speak for itself.
    1. an animal or plant that lives in or on a host (another animal or plant); it obtains nourishment from the host without benefiting or killing the host

    2. leech: a follower who hangs around a host (without benefit to the host) in hope of gain or advantage

Interesting that even politically, women learn faster than men ;-)

OTOH, it could be women put up with liars less?
