Media Must Eliminate Liberal Bias

September 14, 2003

The article "Sneer When You Say 'Journalist' " (by Michael D'Antonio, Aug. 24) is informative, but it overlooks one key factor in the metamorphosis of journalism. The rise of conservative talk radio and Fox's right-leaning news network is not simply due to the emergence of infotainment as news. It is a reaction to the oft-denied liberal bias in the mainstream media.

Whether it's because of polls of journalists illustrating their political affiliation with the Democratic Party or Peter Jennings' sneering sarcasm when referring to Reagan or the Bushes, many Americans have realized that the media are biased despite their pretense of objectivity. Until the media return to objective reporting, they will continue to flounder.
