the new world of media watchdogs

Media Matters has done for the left what the conservative watchdogs (Media Research Center, etc.) have done for the right, scrutinizing every possible item for bias.  Until a few years ago, the right dominated this arena with a significant funding advantage, but it seems the balance has become more even with groups like this one.  With the mainstream media under inspection from left and right, will the middle be ceded to the respective echo chambers, or is this an opportunity for legitimate journalism to step up with actual reporting knowing it can’t completely please either side?
