Liberal media

The importance of the news media can hardly be underestimated as most issues are decided by public opinion.  But how objective and fair are they?  We get an idea from a widely quoted survey taken in ’82 of ‘the prestige media’  (NY Times, Wash. Post, Wall St. Journal, Time, Newsweek, the three networks and PBS).  It said the media have a liberal bias as:

- Three times as many of their newsmen considered themselves liberal as conser­vative.

- 80% favored affirma­tive action.

- 79% believed in the welfare state.

- 80% voted democratic from ’64 to ’76.
