Media Matters quite rightly points out that racism is big business in mainstream media today. As I noted a while ago, what radio figured out long ago, TV has now started to exploit: “one can only stand by and watch as Demagoguery 2.0 explodes in the mainstream media – as a new generation of silvery-tongued pretend populists learn that the ordinary disappointments of a middle-class middle-aged life that so profitably fuelled talk radio can be exploited for TV profits also. These days, meanness is very profitable.”
