MRC reports:
In the wake of the resignations of the top two editors at the New York Times, NBC News looked at declining trust in the media overall and identified two culprits: Conservative, pro-corporate bias and the Fox News Channel.

That's the funny thing about liberal claims of a conservative bias in the news media--it always rests on one target, Fox News. Every time a conservative points out liberal bias somewhere, the response is, "What about Fox News?" Ok, here's a list of all of the media outlets (and just the ones I can think of off the top of my head) with a liberal slant:


Is it any wonder that Fox News creams every other broadcast outlet in the ratings? Liberals can randomly pick any channel on their remotes and they will undoubtedly fall onto one that supports their view. Conservatives have one choice. But in the liberal mindset, all of the above are "middle of the road" and Fox is biased. Uh huh. Read Bias by Bernie Goldberg. Based on surveys, Washington journalists consider themselves completely unbiased by any political doctrine, yet overwhelmingly (almost 90%) they are Democrats and vote accordingly. If that is the leaping off point, how can they consider that unbiased? Is that some kind of statistical anamoly? Goldberg had one really funny and telling quote from Maureen Dowd. After Bush won the 2000 election, Dowd wondered how it could have occurred. No one she knew voted for him! Which is precisely my point. The liberal journalist lives in an isolated world in which all people thinks like him/her ("everyone I know thinks this way, therfore this is the moderate position; hence, anyone to the right of me is a rabid conservative"). They don't even recognize their own bias.
