Wasn't the media more "anti establishment" 30-40 years ago? Now they're all like pro government. What happened?

The anti-establishment people got old and retired. The new generation of editors was young during the Reagan years (called the "Reagan youth" by their detractors). Even the Democrats among them absorbed some Reagan ideas. And as the conservative movement turned neocon, they assumed the neocons were the real conservatives.
