People that tend to go into journalism and into education by in large are left leaning. There are some who are not but they are marginlized and shunned by the "mainstream".
.........."There is a left leaning bent to the media. That's not even debatable
So your opinion
is not even open to questioning, eh? (is that you George? (Bush) or maybe it's the lord himself??
At the risk of havimng you hurl a bolt of lightning at me, I would ask if you ever listen to those screaming liberals:
& anyone else who appears on Fox news?You may not refute my words....I have spoken!
The real answer to media's bias is they are biased towards MONEY
They will report anything that will keep viewers tuned in to their ads...period. Maybe in the 1960's you liberal bias accusations may have been true, but not now. The almighty dollar is the only thing the media cares about, & worships!
( I took a journalism course in college & the first day of class, the professor asked the class "What is the purpose of a newspaper?"
After all the lofty answers the students responded with, such as: "To keep the electorate informed", "To write the first, rough draft of history", etc....The professor gave the real answer: "The purpose of a newspaper (& all commercial news media)......Is to make money!"
"If we (media) weren't selling advertising space, we'd be selling toothpaste."
