The truth is the MSM is now mostly owned by a few mega-corporations. These huge corporations keep getting bigger as they gobble up more and more. That is definitely a problem and we can thank Reagan and his Republican congress in deregulating the media years ago. It used to be that there was a cap on how much of the media pie one corporation could own. That was an effective way to get more voices heard. But no more...
Now the mega corporation's consistent message can be heard on every media outlet they own. The message can be repeated indefinitely, persuading public opinion. Diversity be damned, replaced with the diversity brand.
So, yes, the MSM should be a concern. But you already bought into the notion that the MSM is in the tank for Obama, a thought forwarded by that MSM you mentioned. They have fooled you and you don't even realize it.

Ron Paul on the Fiscal Trick
Posted by Lew Rockwell on January 4, 2013 02:11 PM
Despite claims that the Administration and Congress saved America from the fiscal cliff with an early morning vote today, the fact is that government spending has already pushed Americans over the cliff. Only serious reductions in federal spending will stop the cliff dive from ending in a crash landing, yet the events of this past month show that most elected officials remain committed to expanding the welfare-warfare state.
While there was much hand-wringing over the “draconian” cuts that would be imposed by sequestration, in fact sequestration does not cut spending at all. Under the sequestration plan, government spending will increase by 1.6 trillion over the next eight years. Congress calls this a cut because without sequestration spending will increase by 1.7 trillion over the same time frame. Either way it is an increase in spending."
