The media's job is to report without bias.

Sorry, the media's job is not to elevate paranoid nonsense to the level of political discourse. When Todd Akin suggests that pregnancy is impossible during rape, it's just ignorant, stupid talk, and needs to be met with the kind of response that reasonable people use in the face of base stupidity - this is to either ignore it, or to point and laugh.

When the popular media is pointing and laughing at modern conservatism, it's not collusion with the government; it's just the natural course of normal people pointing and laughing at things that have no business being taken seriously.
