BRIAN STELTER: So what’s gonna happen to it now, Alex? I fear this is likely the end of the Sun as a nonpartisan, widely trusted, outlet. And there’s gonna have to be alternatives to pop up in its place. Because when these sorts of right-wing backers of media talk, they talk in code. When they say fair, what they really mean is, “we think the press is too liberal”. When they say balanced, what they mean is “we want the media to advance our political agenda, but cloak it in an all-sides claim to balance”. You know what I mean? It's that kind of code language that we’re already hearing the new owner of the Sun start to use.
