Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Media Patriotism?

This week, The Alliance is asking yet another question. The Alliance is wondering:

Is the Mainstream Media patriotic? Why or why not?

First, a minor correction. This conglomerate called "The Mainstream Media" -- says who? Who made them "mainstream?" I mean, really, who came up with the term "mainstream media?"

What is every other form of media, if it's not "mainstream?" Is everyone else "alternative?" Who gets to decide who is "mainstream" and who is "alternative?"

And wait, isn't "alternative" supposed to be good and celebrated? If you're not supporting "alternative," aren't you being racist, sexist, homophobic, or some other derogatory term? So, logically, the mainstream media, by it's own definition is not "alternative" -- and is therefore racist, sexist, and homophobic.

Certainly being patriotic is a good thing, right? So one who is patriotic must be a good person or a good being. And those who are racist, sexist, and homophobic are not good, once again, according to the aforementioned "mainstream" media.

Now, since we now have determined that the "mainstream" media is, according to the "mainstream" media, racist, sexist, and homophobic, it seems only natural that they cannot be patriotic, too, doesn't it? Because certainly one who is patriotic is not racist, sexist, and homophobic, right?
