The majority of the media is liberally biased.

Many of the positions in the preceding study are supported by a 2002 study by Jim A. Kuypers: Press Bias and Politics: How the Media Frame Controversial Issues. In this study of 116 mainstream US papers (including The New York Times, the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle), Kuypers found that the mainstream print press in America operate within a narrow range of li...beral beliefs. Those who expressed points of view further to the left were generally ignored, whereas those who expressed moderate or conservative points of view were often actively denigrated or labeled as holding a minority point of view. In short, if a political leader, regardless of party, spoke within the press-supported range of acceptable discourse, he or she would receive positive press coverage. If a politician, again regardless of party, were to speak outside of this range, he or she would receive negative press or be ignored. Kuypers also found that the liberal points of view expressed in editorial and opinion pages were found in hard news coverage of the same issues. Although focusing primarily on the issues of race and homosexuality, Kuypers found that the press injected opinion into its news coverage of other issues such as welfare reform, environmental protection, and gun control; in all cases favoring a liberal point of view.

HA! Gotta love the elite liberal media's stranglehold of the radio and radio talk shows...oh wait...

And those damn liberals at Fox News!


However, I can see how conservatives think everything has a liberal bias.

But the fact that facts and logic contradict their unfounded, ludicrous, moronic world view does not make it liberal. It makes conservatives ignoramuses. So in that sense, the truth has a liberal bias.

This is a list of liberal media personalities.

Liberal TV and radio some of which are partially funded by the government. Its no wonder that rush Limbaugh and fox are so popular, its the only place for us to get a different perspective.
