4. "Our" media? If you mean news media, most of the big news sources

work to keep Republicans in power, with a pervasive ANTI-Democratic bias. CNN, NYT and their kind average an overall negative spin on everything Democratic while staying mostly factually accurate most of the time (not always by a long shot!). That's pretty much their baseline.

Democrats don't have "our" own LW-biased MSM news media, though. That's because of the kind of people we are, so a good thing even if it means that deceiving voters would be incredibly harder for us than it is for Republicans. We have to depend on those media that try to be ethical and accurate.

Anyway, if you mean news media, ours are essentially nowhere. If you mean political chat, some of the shows on CNN and MSNBC are left-friendly, but their share of America's audience is not large.
