Does Glenn Reynolds hope that his smear campaign against the non-right-wing media will lead to censorship?

From Instapundit:

Freedom of the press, as it exists today (and didn’t exist, really, until the 1960s) is unlikely to survive if a majority — or even a large and angry minority — of Americans comes to conclude that the press is untrustworthy and unpatriotic. How far are we from that point?

I wonder who’s been campaigning to convince the country that “the press” — that part of it not owned by Rupert Murdoch or the Rev. Mr. Moon, that is — is untrustworthy and unpatriotic?
