Blaming the media is so 2008.

In October 2008, I wrote:
It's pretty clear that Putz and the drooling Malkinites in wingnutland are getting ready to blame the corporate media when Obama wins
The problem with this narrative is that: 
a) the GOP has dominated national electoral politics for a decade, in spite of said "liberal media" conspiring to elect Democrats, and; 
b) the wingnut bloggers themselves spend lots of time and energy obsessing over the idea that the mainstream media has an ever-diminishing influence/relevance (how many posts has Putz done this year of the New York Times stock price/circulation figures?)
I'm not sure how they square all of this in their little brains exactly, but it makes my head hurt.
They're still running the same play, four years later.
