Media Bias

There's a new study out from UCLA, and with only a few surprises, it shows what conservatives have been saying for years--there's a definite liberal bias in mainstream news media.

The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer comes out as most balanced. I'm not surprised.

Media sells emotion, not facts.

Emotion wants quick a response, and does not consider the long term.

Add that together and media almost has to be liberal.

Yeah...and somehow the liberals will say the opposite is true. Oh, how the grass is always greener...

Is this really a good way to measure media bias? Do people think of Brit Hume as right-wing because of the think tanks he cites or because of what he adds of his own?

Edward, I just added four comments from you. You haven't been on here in awhile. How are things going in the Bay Area?
