James Joyner discusses how consumers of particular conservative media outlets were shocked that President Obama was re-elected and were shocked again that Senator Hagel was confirmed as Secretary of Defense.
Bubble-supporting media presumably attracts an audience by telling them things they want to hear. But when the predictions that media makes are dramatically wrong over and over again, will the audience eventually shrink?
I know some people who humiliated themselves socially this November by bragging loudly about the coming thumping of Obama and then had to slink back to their social circles shame-faced after the election. They were set up for that fall by their reliance on bubble-support media and I would think that would make them less willing to consume it in future.
