The reason they are so happily in bed with this administration, is that this administration has perverted the traditional Republican ethic of smaller government to mean government continues to grow larger, but by outsourcing to corporations many of its functions.
As mass media outlets are now multifaceted corporations, the easier they go on the government, the more lucrative outsourced contracts they stand to gain. Another factor in the mainstream media's complicity with this administration's warped goals is that everyone now knows that if you cross these people, you will never have access to anything again. So the mainstream media is as much a victim of this administration as those they help to victimize.
