Am I the only one on this board that is not convinced of the alleged liberal media bias? I could just as easily believe that there is generally a conservative media bias in the main stream networks. Different studies have found different biases - is there any reason to believe one study as right?
It seems to me that there is an overwhelming belief by most people on the internet and in the real world that that the bias is a fact. I can certainly see why conservatives would want people to believe that there is a bias. Imagine that there is not bias, but the conservatives convince the media that they are biased so that began slanting the views to the right of what they believe is unbiased just to avoid being labelled left-leaning. Wouldn't that be sweet for the conservatives? But I just can not convince myself that a bias actually exists.
