What exactly is it that "can be slowly fixed"? Newspaper and TV networks selling ads to remain in business? Or, liberals tendency for anti-gun bias?
Educating journalists. Writing to them not foaming at the mouth when they make a mistake, but explaining what they got wrong. Offering them angles for stories they probably don't know about. And so on.

In other words, we need to lose the snark and the confrontational approach, and stop playing victims.

It's a slow process, because it's a cultural issue. Not a political one.
