    'Liberal Media Bias' Inspires Launch of New Blog
    By Jered Ede

    August 09, 2005

    (CNSNews.com) - America's most prominent media watchdog plans to launch its own blog on Tuesday with a goal of further exposing and combating the perceived liberal bias in the media.

    Newsbusters.org is the latest project of the Media Research Center, which is also the parent organization of Cybercast News Service. The new blog will feature posts by some of the nation's most widely read experts on the issue of media bias, an issue that Michael Chapman, communications director for the Media Research Center, said "is almost overwhelming."

    "Thirty to 40 million viewers are getting news from sources with a liberal bias," Chapman said, referring to the "old media" such as broadcast network giants NBC, CBS, ABC and cable titan CNN.

    A media research center makeover it appears and
    good for them they have needed to upgrade for
    a long time.

    Looks like it is trying to copy Media Matters
    it does allow comments which is good but will
    it be a Free Republic draconian style.

    I think perhaps Drudge is fixing to quit so
    they need another portal or repeat the propaganda.

    btw all thos old media outlets are not even close
    to being far left...case in point whenever you
    have an Iraq war update, you never see peace activists commentators on any show but what you do see is ex-military
    ...cia..etc..so this old media or the media we have now is liberal is pure bunk.

    If anything they are really trying play it down
    the middle with more center right perspective
    but people who love their conspiracy theories
    want to label and demonize them but I say
    "What liberal media?"

    If anything the media needs to take up more and
    more the discipline and religion of OBJECTIVITY..
    THE STORY...SOLID SOURCES. For the most part
    major media does that but they are slipping imho.

    Fox news is sooooo biased it will make your head
    spin but that could change ..Murdock is rumored
    to be backing Hillary Clinton and I have noticed
    less Hillary critique as normal from them and even
    Sean Hannity has backed off.

    thanks Poncho and to be fair and balanced
    a link to Media Matters

    Media Matters

    Uh, right ASP,
    Like Rather and CBS, and of course the New York Times. They would never make up a story would they? :D

    The only major news media that give conservatives an equal footing are Fox News and U.S. News & World Report.
