Our poor misunderstood government

The funniest thing I read today was this opinion piece by Sherry Sylvester of Texas Media Watch, which blames "one-sided and emotional" coverage of the ongoing budget battle to - wait for it - media monopolies. Yes, readers of the five major Texas newspapers are being underserved because Belo, Hearst, and NewsCorp are not being sufficiently deferential to their government masters. And here I thought the worst thing to come out of media consolidation was too many radio stations that play too much Journey. Silly me.
