all behold the evil liberal media.. : \
The problem is that there's no reference to how many papers are considered liberal; how many considered conservative. And, there is no mention of the telly.
There are a few litmus tests; gun control is one. During my nationwide travel over these last 15 years, I've come to view the dominant media position as liberal.
(I'm an inveterate newspaper reader, particularly editorials and letters to editors. From the Goat Gap Gazette on up to the WashPost, etc.)
Yeah, I'd love to see which papers they analyzed, and which fell into what catagory.
HA! That is funny.
Lets see, is ABC liberal? Yes.
Fox, no (fair and ballanced)
Look at the print media. Liberal outlets outnumber conservative outlets massively on primetime news. Print wise, I would imagine it is a massive difference as well. The only place that conservates rule is the airwaves on am radio.
Don't forget fair, balanced, and traitorous! Good old Geraldo.
Yea, the map in the sand was very stupid
prepare to love.
the paper can be downloaded from here:
fwiw, the "liberal" post supported the war.
i really don't see that. primetime news is so watered down and banal that there's no real editorial.
do the results of the paper surprise you?
No, they don't suprise me because liberal outlets outnumber conservative outlets, so they have to be more defensive.
not sure what you mean by 'defensive.'
It actually doesn't surprise me very much for this reason; a truly liberal newspaper would have been very critical of many of Clinton's policies since Clinton was really a moderate, not a liberal. By contrast Bush, who campaigned as a centrist, is really a much more right-wing conservative; thus conservative publications would be more prone to be in step with his actions.
occum's razor suggests: these 4 newspapers were harder on clinton than on bush. that's the only logical conclusion one can draw from the data.
That's not really a conclusion though. It's an observation that is easily made by looking at the results. This is also only a survey of 4 papers correct? It should be broadened beyind that if we want to draw any significant conclusions.
