Funny, the reference to the Hollywood elite on the teaser for this article.  Yes, those people are wealthy but there's more to elite than wealth.  The media types might not make as much money but the ability to control what topics are and aren't up for national discussion makes them just as elite and removed from the interests of ordinary people.

I would say that the media is far more elite. Being able to frame the national discourse carries far more weight than being able to write a check. Look at Sheldon Adleson, he blew 100 million on the last election and had a neglible effect.
