UCLA Study Concludes that Media has Liberal Bias - They Also Discovered that Snow is Often White

A 3 year long study by a UCLA political scientist has shown, I think pretty conclusively, that the media in this country has a left-leaning bias. In fact, the general media is so biased that The Drudge Report is seen as left leaning because it links to stories from the mainstream media. The method they used was very scientific in that they indexed "right leaning" and "left leaning" statements against statements made by lawmakers. These lawmakers political leaning was also indexed against his or her voting record. Also, this study did not include any opinion pieces. It was based solely on news articles.

While the conclusion of this report was blindingly obvious - it is nice to have the confirmation.
