Your Bias is Showing

You know its bad when a liberal institution like Harvard is noticing. From Investor's Business Daily:

Democrats are not only favored in the tone of the coverage. They get more coverage period. This is particularly evident on morning news shows, which "produced almost twice as many stories (51% to 27%) focused on Democratic candidates than on Republicans."

The most flagrant bias, however, was found in newspapers. In reviewing front-page coverage in 11 newspapers, the study found the tone positive in nearly six times as many stories about Democrats as it was negative.

So, the major Media is practically a 527 organization for the Democrat Party? This is not a free press and there ought to be a law! It seems when the bulk of the country only hear one side of an issue, this becomes a threat to our freedom. Reporters like to say "We don't tell you what to think, just what to think about". That's only a single word difference from "tell you what to think" and it is too often left out.
