Journalist bias

This is the stuff I am talking about.

You simply and seriously can't believe what you read. We are all being dictated to. The journalists are picking stories to cover based on their feelings. And their writing according to their preferences. Some may be better at disguising it then others.

As I have started recently saying...

We don't know where the 'real' center is in this country. I suspect that on a scale of 0-100, with 100 being liberal and 50 being the 'real' center, the world we see through print and tv is 60 to 65.

So here are the results of a poll carried out just recently. It was asked anonymously.

"When asked who would be a better president, the journalists from outside the Beltway picked Mr. Kerry 3 to 1, and the ones from Washington favored him 12 to 1. Those results jibe with previous surveys over the past two decades showing that journalists tend to be Democrats, especially the ones based in Washington."

I'm trying not to let that 3 to 1 get overshadowed by the 12 to 1. 3 to 1 is itself a stunning national bias.
