Media in the San Francisco Bay Area refers to media produced and covered within the San Francisco Bay Area, historically focused on San Francisco, but with two other major media centers, Oakland and San Jose. The Bay Area is a technologically advanced and innovative region, with many Internet websites based in the area, including social networking giant Facebook and the largest search engine site Google. The region also hosts to one of the oldest radio stations in the United States still in existence, KCBS (AM) (740 kHz), founded by engineer Charles Herrold in 1909.
San Francisco Bay Area media tends to be liberal in nature, as well as diverse, thanks to a number of factors, including continuous growth of immigrants moving to the region, the culture of liberalism that persisted for decades, and an affluent population that provides a niche for various media forms.

Contaminate our fingers with base bribes,
And sell the mighty space of our large honors
For so much trash as may be grasped thus?

Than such a Roman.”
