Reading between the lines: Media Bias

An excellent article on bias in the media by Richard Land.

“A segment on the July 12 edition of ABC’s Good Morning America revealed what most Americans already knew—the media elite just don’t get it.

Coming out of a news report on the creative ways some Americans avoid jury duty, GMA co-host Diane Sawyer told of a time she had been called to fulfill that civic responsibility.

Diane Sawyer: “You know, I wanted to sit on a jury once and I was taken off the jury. And the judge said to me, ‘Can, you know, can you tell the truth and be fair?’ And I said, ‘That’s what journalists do.’ And everybody in the courtroom laughed. It was the most hurtful moment I think I’ve ever had.”

Ms. Sawyer, welcome to the world of reality beyond the insulated and overwhelmingly liberal protective bubble in which you and your liberal media colleagues live and breathe.

Outside the very narrow philosophical and ideological confines of the network newsrooms in New York City and their adjunct studios in Hollywood and Washington, most of the American public believe the electronic media is horrendously biased.”
