Top Ten most Left-Biased American Journalists - #1: Helen Thomas, UPI/Independent
Publius Forum ^ | 07/23/10 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 07/23/2010 6:10:53 PM PDT by Mobile Vulgus

We have finally reached the number one, most left-biased journalist in America today on our top ten count down and our most biased journo pick probably won’t surprise any of you. Even though she just “retired” due to her outrageous bias and hatred for Israel, we just have to give the number one most biased slot to the ever-vitriolic Ms. Helen Thomas, long time employee of United Press International (UPI) and later an independent Washington journalist.

Thomas was an over 50-year employee of UPI but in the year 2000 she quit the wire service because it was bought by News World Communications which is affiliated with the Unification Church. She was proud of herself, though, because according to her she was “never, never accused of bias” in her reporting.

“I worked for United Press International for more than fifty years, and I wrote straight copy. I was never, never accused of bias. I did not bow out of the human race. I permitted myself to care, to believe, to think. But I assure you, I assure you that it did not get in my copy.”
But that isn’t what her record says. Bias was epidemic throughout. In May of 2000 the MRC went back and found at least half a dozen instances where Thomas readily revealed her bias. Instances range from Ronald Reagan’s days in office up to the year 2000 when she quit UPI...

Try as she may, she could never get under the skin of Ronaldus Maximus. After that she turned from a bitter woman into a very bitter woman.

Telling the blondes, "No, raise your other left hand."

Amazingly enough, Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Västergötland is also a brunette.

No Jonathan Alter? The biggest Obama shill in the media I can think of. And how did Eugene Robinson not make the list? Or is he more of an Obama shill than he is a ‘left-biased’ shill?

What about Katrina Vanden Heuvel and Eric Alterman of the Nation? Are they being left off because they are read by only a paltry few hundred?

I guess they do not qualify as actual "journalists". They are in the Keith Olberman, Rachel Maddow whiney wannabe category.

Exactly right, Alterman, Heuval, they aren’t really even loosely termed as journalists. Just like Olberbite, “Tingles” Matthews, and Mr. R. Maddow, these people are just cartoons of journalists.
