A familiar plaint on the right side of the blogosphere — and certainly something that crops up frequently in my posts — is media bias. I tend to address it in bits and pieces. That is, one thing or another offends me and I comment on it. A more sophisticated intelligence, such as Richard Baehr’s, takes broad, disparate bits of evidence and spins them into a strong fabric demonstrating the deep-seated, and deep-reaching, biases that permeate our media. Baehr summarizes his own conclusion in this paragraph, but you really should read the whole article to appreciate the evidence and the argument:
I may have missed a few, but that may be because I cancelled my subscription to the New York Times, and this week’s Newsweek has not yet arrived. To put it simply. Bernard Goldberg was right, and the mainstream media is left. And this is not to argue for a journalistic worldview that expressed only the preconceptions of the right.
