Skip to comments.Is the Liberal Media Bias finally dead?
Posted on 04/06/2009 6:28:30 AM PDT by TalkRadioInsiders.com
After viewing an article on examiner.com that asks the question about the current existance of the liberal media bias . I thought I would share a few thoughts on this.
Not long ago (10 or 15 years ago) the big buzz on talk radio was how unfair and completely bias the media was - to the left. In fact its only in recent years that this proclamation has died down. But I would say the notion of only 1 side being represented on a given subject - has changed dramatically and is worth noting.
The way news is being covered these days has changed dramatically and I think reporters of all view points are now being represented quite well. This has been a long time coming. This may come as a bit of a shock to those from a conservative viewpoint, as weve thought of ourselves for so long as the unheard voice in the wilderness.
So I say lets keep score...

it’s approaching it’s prime....thus the decline, people want the truth
Who wrote this?
Uh, no...the leftist press will be right back on our necks as soon as it is feasible. Mark it.
One only has to look at the fawning coverage of 0’s European tour to conclude that the answer to your question is, no.
Where’s the coverage of 0 bowing to the Saudi king? Hmmm?
This guy puts MSNBC somewhere in the middle. Uh huh. Next.
MSNBC is SPLIT!!! You must be nuts!!! FOX is balanced.
Someone from the left leaning press ... obviously.
Signed up two days ago. TROLL!!!!TROLL!!!!
This is pure craptrap. Liberal bias is stronger than ever. Just look at the recent election of the Teleprompter Kid.
Whoever wrote this article must have been smoking some potent sh-t.
The liberal media bias is even worse than before. They continue to lay down biased cover for the spread of marxism in our country.
I think one of the oustanding achievements of the brilliant Obama adminsitration is the fact that he has ended media bias. Who else could have pulled that off? A stunning achievement, the likes of which the world has never seen before. Now, all reporting is fair and objective and we are in a new era of journalistic excellence — all thanks to the god-like Barack Obama. [/sycophantic press]

I’d like to know who the “Talk Radio Insider” is.
WHO ARE YOU ?
Bias dead? No. Stupidity reigns. Just heard this exchange from two infobabes on CNN:
“The Dow is just coming off it’s greatest 4-week gains since 1933!” The reply? “Oh thats great!”
When in doubt, blame Medved.
I went to the link, and it appears the answer is “staff”. It looks like a very simple blog, but no names seem to exist anywhere about who is involved.
Overall, whoever it is did a fairly poor job of explaining his/her basis that liberal bias is ending....
What utter nonsense! We have a Democrat president and Democratic controlled Congress! Of course the Democrats have to be reported on. They control everything now! But does the press bust Obama's chops for lying about how he "inherited this mess" when in fact he's been in Congress since Jan 2005 and passing those bills!
Yes, let's keep score.
Vertical metal pole 1, you 0.
Fail! Well, for you, at least. Not for the kittens, however.

It really hurts to watch that!
O dear gawd, that must have HURT.
....all view points are
now not being represented quite well.
There, fixed it for you, troll.
" you lie"
There have been a lot of studies on media bias, one of the most detailed came from George Mason University which measured the time spent on each side of an issue as well as the number of guests representing each side. That study showed that, in balance with the country, all the media is leftward slanting, even Fox, although Fox and Drudge where closest to the middle, being the most balanced.
Here is the detailed study.
You joined three days ago to post an article written by your website that is laughable anyway?
NO....it’s still here.
I guess bias must be a difficult thing to gauge when a good number of people still get their news from local and "popular" cable outlets, and when said news organizations pick and choose which stories to run and which stories to ignore based on personal politics and preference. So if a violent protest takes place in Europe during Obama's visit to the G20 summit and you don't see it covered on CNN, did it really happen? If Michelle Obama wears a mangled mess of clothing to a public event and the statists drool and fawn, does it make her fashionable?
This country was duped into voting for a rank amateur with the assistance of statists in the media - but as the days go by, more people are beginning to wake up and smell the gulag.
Liberal bias dead? Ohhh, no no no. The liberal bias is just beginning.
Thank you for posting something that someone might actually learn something from.
PMSNBC has some of the biggest moonbattery there is. How could you possibly conclude they are split? CNN is more sane than they are.
For some reason this reminds me of the "Blues Brothers" scene where the woman says (paraphrasing) "We play both kinds of music : country and western."
I suppose in your mind the MSM are giving all points of view. From the extreme left-wing to the left-of-center point.
Does the phrase "We all work for the President now. " "He's every inch a president" and the fact that ABC can't give less than an "A" for any speech he does really sound "un-biased" to you?
What a crock, looks like a Fairness Doctrine supporter. That or an ACORN Operative looking to expand the ranks.
What a steaming turdpile.
Conservative talk radio does not hide the fact that it is opinion.
See the difference? I didn't think so.
Not even close, although, as more newspapers and prime time propagand . . . . . er, NEWS shows find their subscribers.viewers in decline and their revenues down sharply, there is hope. But, contrary to the laws of physics, the greater the decline, the more leftists bias displayed by the news media. They don't seem to get it - and neither do I.
You have GOT to be freakin kidding!
Love the password today. Strange posting history to say the least.
