    The Media Research Center has a "Media Bias 101" summary. In it they have 25 plus years of survey research showing; "how journalists vote, what journalists think, what the public thinks about the media, and what journalists say about media bias." They have compiled through their links, "more than 40 different surveys, with key findings and illustrative charts."

    The majority think they are biased and trust is eroding, but will that change anything.... I doubt it. As long as they have sponsors they will continue to help Democrats.

    Imagine that, the free market allowing such biased, harmful journalism to thrive. It's almost like free markets are... imperfect! :faint:

    The free market is working very well as the commie-stream media dries up and goes out of business as people take their money elsewhere.

    The free market is the reason Fox News is doing so well. And, look how mad that makes liberals. They almost foam at the mouth when the subject of Fox comes up.

    And, why? Because, liberals really believe CBS, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, the N.Y. Times, and the Washington Post are middle of the road and Fox is far right.

    Admit it. You think that, right?
