MediaChannel.org has the results of a media survey that shows substantial anti-Bush bias. According to their survey, network news broadcasts in January and February contained an average of three times more negative news statements about President Bush than Sen. Kerry.
This is hardly surprising, as the media has a massive Democratic bias, a bias that is shown not only in the partisan identification of reporters, but in the content of news and opinion pieces in nearly every major newspaper in the country. The media is a political monoculture, in which liberal concepts and groups are not questioned while anything remotely conservative is lambasted.
Fortunately the blogosphere has resources to fact check the media and the ability to research records, policies, and previous statements can now be gained from Google or the local library. In fact, anyone wanting to see media bias in action can simply use Google News to pull the most recent stories on the presswires and how they paint each candidate over time. The results of such a search would prove the results of this study.
Media bias is no fiction – it’s the reality of a political monoculture and rampant groupthink across the media.
