UCLA Study: Media Bias Is Real and Objectively Measurable

"I suspected that many media outlets would tilt to the left because surveys have shown that reporters tend to vote more Democrat than Republican," said Tim Groseclose, a UCLA political scientist and the study's lead author. "But I was surprised at just how pronounced the distinctions are."

"Overall, the major media outlets are quite moderate compared to members of Congress, but even so, there is a quantifiable and significant bias in that nearly all of them lean to the left," said co‚ÄĎauthor Jeffrey Milyo, University of Missouri economist and public policy scholar.

I've been fighting my own battle on this study on a closed USENET newsgroup (panix.chat.politics) for the past week or so.

Predictably, the Angry Left simply refuses to believe that the study has any validity. They cite, as "proof," refutations from the leftward side of the MSM - hardly disinterested parties - attacking the study's methodology.

Oh well. At least they're consisten.
