Can you prove the media is liberally biased?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Faux News is crap. Having said that, there was a study in 1992 of news storied covering Bush, Sr. and then candidate Clinton. Although the Bush's have actually been long time proponents of activist government and globalism, they have campaigned conservative since the 1970's. Nearly 90% of Bush stories were negative, while slightly less than half of the stories on Clinton were. In that same year, 85% of journalists polled voted for Clinton, 13% voted for Bush, and only 2% voted for Ross Perot.

If my personal experience is considered valid by the OP, I have seen so many Marxists and authoritarians in liberal arts programs (including many courses I've taken), and, seeing the resulting bias amongst graduates, I've had to conclude that this is unquestionably the result of some organized effort to promote this.

When one compares economies organized through free market competition vs. rigidly controlled state run monopolies and Soviet style centralization, almost anyone immediately concludes that workers and consumers are MUCH better protected by the competition of the free marketplace. Nevertheless, I keep hearing liberals screaming at me about the "NEEEEED" for socialistic policies. Journalists seem to be the most ardent about this. Students are repeatedly told that this is about open mindedness, education, and enlightenment. Try questioning these "ideas" or even suggest that a society based on Constitutionally limited government, silver/gold backed currency, and unregulated markets is even an option to consider. Expecting the "poor" to take responsibility for themselves? Out of the question.

Anyone asking for 'proof' that the mainstream media is liberally biased should also supply proof that Fox news is right wing and a wing of the republican party.

In the end the cable news networks air 'opinion' shows. And they all have the leanings.
Hannity-Right
Olberman-Left.

If you don't like it then don't watch.

John Stossel has always been a nutbar, and I defy you to find a single liberal who loved him. Thank God he's off to cable where he can reach fewer and do less damage. I hadn't even heard that he'd moved to the Cult of Fox, but it's where he belongs.

And just cause he was on a show that won 17 emmy's doesn't mean he had anything to do with it.
