The proportion of liberals to conservatives in the press, either 3-to-1 or 4-to-1, has stayed the same since a survey began in 1962. That liberals are dominant is now beyond dispute.
Does this affect coverage? Is there really liberal bias? The answers are, of course, yes and yes.
It couldn't be any other way. Think for a moment if the numbers were reversed and conservatives had outnumbered liberals in the media for the past four decades.
Would President Bush have gotten kinder coverage? For sure, and I'll bet any liberal would agree with that. Would President Reagan have been treated with less hostility if the national press was conservative-dominated? Yes, again.
The effort to hire more minorities and women has had the effect of making the media more liberal, because that group overwhelmingly leans to the Democratic party.
By diversifying the profession in one way, they were making it more homogenous in another.
High-visibility scandals involving fabricated stories and controversies about plagiarism only seem to happen to liberal journalists and politicians. What a diverse media. So many Choices of plagiarism for liberals.
Your last statement sums up how frustrated you must feel:
Only in a politically correct fucked up liberal retard world can a "favorite black people" list be construed as racist. How is that racist?
There is an inferiority complex at work in liberals that paints any non liberal a RACIST if they write or speak about African Americans. Truly the mark of a racist.
-----You guys wouldn't know racism even if someone yelled "I Hate White People before they killed you."
FROM Coulter is... Acting Like an A$$ blog - I think I make a very good point...
The left wing media matters :http://news.yahoo.com/left-wing-foundations-lavish-millions-media-matters-055013767.html
...tape of Ann Coulter arguing that Obama only got into Harvard because of Affirmative Action is most likely a truth. How is that RACIST?
When white firemen sued after being passed over in favor of making the fire department diverse and inclusive by promoting firemen who performed poorly on the STANDARD TEST was that a good thing?
Is it not RACIST not to mention life threatening to promote inferior firemen over more experienced or superior firemen?
Just because a left wing media organization infers that someone said something racist and then includes a snippet of audio where Ann Coulter states he got into Harvard because he is a BLack American, does not prove that she is racist. How infantile.
