Ornstein said the media's failure led him to conclude: "If you want to use a strategy of 'I'm just going to lie all the time', when you have the false equivalence meme adopted by a mainstream press and the other side lies a quarter of the time, you get away with it."

Yep, the Magical Balance Fairy got one hell of a workout during this election, didn't she?

They still haven't covered it, and they never will. Alien kitties is exactly right: it wouldn't be "balanced".

I wonder if the "media" being mostly, in this country, comprised of private enterprises who exist to make a profit, would actually bite the hand that feeds them?

No, they won't.

Thus the last thing they'll do is to try and stop the flow of billions of dollars from wingnut buyers of air time.

When you have a press that his been bullied and brow beaten into submission by an army of fanatics looking not for truth or fact of any kind, but simply more ideological absolution from said press over the last thirty years. To where even the hint of an opinion from an angle other than the standard right wing mind fuck at the moment means another round of brow beating and bullying, what the hell do you expect?

You get cravenness and Broderism.

Both sides do it repeated ad nauseum until it becomes common perception, and we all know that perception to most people(especially those who are just too intellectually shallow to give a shit about anything other than what they are going to eat for lunch or watch on television when they get home from work on any given day) is reality.
