The machine is about setting agendas as a counterbalance to what he sees as a liberal print press (Fairfax in Australia). Setting the agenda means neoliberal economic views, neo-conservative enthusiasm for war-making, a dislike of multiculturalism, assimilation etc. There are no walls of separation between the opinion pages and the news sections in the conservative noise machine.
