Media Bias Ratings

Tim Groseclose a political science professor at the University of California in Los Angeles and Jeff Milyo of the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago ranked the major media outlets to see if they show signs of political bias.

The outlets were graded on a scale of 0-100, the higher the score the more liberal the outlet. Here are their results.

Wall Street Journal-85.1
New York Times-73.7
CBS Evening News-73.7
Los Angeles Times-70.0
CBS The Early Show-66.6
Washington Post-66.6
Newsweek-66.3
NPR Morning Edition-66.3
U.S. News & World Report-65.8
Time Magazine-65.4
NBC Today Show-64.0
USA Today-63.4
NBC Nightly News-61.6
ABC World News Tonight-61.0
ABC Good Morning America-56.1
CNN Newslight with Aaron Brown-56.0
PBS Newshour with Jim Lehrer-55.8
Fox News Special Report with Brit Hume-39.7

I have heard it said, that more and more people are turning away from the main stream media to get their news and information. I wonder why?

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I have always wondered how pundits find this political bias. Most of the time, news is just being reported as a pile of facts. How is that slanted? I think pundits consider a slant just because it makes their politicians look bad. My philosophy is that if their politicians would not do bad things, they wouldn't be in such circumstances.

I've never commented on my own post before, but after reading okdemocrat's comment I guess I will now. During the last presidential election we read news report after news report about the presidential candidates, Bush and Kerry. Have you ever heard of Michael Peroutka? In case your one of many that haven't Michael was the Constitution Party's presidential candidate for 2004. By leaving his name out of 99.9 percent of their articles didn't the main stream show just a little bias.
