Actually my favorite nickname for any modern news is the throwaway line from a recent VW commercial.
Lame-stream media. Frankly too many of our media organs are owned by proponents of one political party or another. If CNN claimed water was wet, Fox would bring out a blue ribbon panel that swore it was bone dry.

If you have ever read it, there was a book by Jerry Pournelle about Falkenberg's Legion that called our modern day opposing parties the 'Unity' party, because they just trade who is in charge every four years or so.

I make a habit of comparing the news from out local sources, and some select foreign one to get a better feel for the events.

'To argue with those who have renounced the use and authority of reason is as futile as to administer medicine to the dead.' Now who said that?
