Media bias is an enormous phenomena in America. With few notable exceptions, the vast majority of professional journalists hold far left-wing views, and much worse -- anti-American bias.
Some people believe that the solution is to eradicate media bias. I maintain that this is an impossible goal.
A more reasonable approach is to expect professional journalists to speak honestly about their biases.
At that point, we can become informed consumers of media.
At this point, the majority of Liberal journalists stubbornly refuse to admit media bias. They constantly spin news stories to put American, our people, and our leaders in the worst possible light. They constantly spew disparaging remarks about the values which we as a people hold dear. They insult the intelligence of the patriotic Americans who make this the greatest country on Earth. And then with straight faces, they deny this ever happened.
FoxNews displays a pro-American and Conservative bias. The difference with FoxNews is that they openly admit their pro-American bias and their conservative bias. The differences are that the FoxNews journalists are honest. They do not not insult our intelligence with outright lies.
Its time that CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS display some moral fortitude and speak openly and honestly about their convictions.

In his nearly thirty years at CBS News, Emmy Award winner Bernard Goldberg earned a reputation as one of the preeminent reporters in the television news business. When he looked at his own industry, however, he saw that the media far too often ignored their primary mission: to provide objective, disinterested reporting. Again and again he saw that the news slanted to the left. For years, Goldberg appealed to reporters, producers, and network executives for more balanced reporting, but no one listened. The liberal bias continued.
Now, breaking ranks and naming names, he reveals a corporate news culture in which the closed-mindedness is breathtaking and in which entertainment wins over hard news every time.
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bias exposes the culture of narrow-minded elitism in the media--and reveals what must be done to change it.In December of 2001, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg charged the mainstream media with slanting the news and created a firestorm with his controversial bestseller Bias. Now Goldberg goes beyond identifying the media's partiality and explains how the slanting of the news is all but inevitable in the current climate--and why the media's stars continue to deny the industry's condition. In this fascinating report, Goldberg lays out his rallying cry, unafraid to name names, and prescribes the difficult remedies that must take place if genuinely balanced news is to survive.
"Liberals have been wrong about everything in the last half century," writes conservative pundit Ann Coulter, author of the bestselling anti-Clinton tome High Crimes and Misdemeanors. They've been especially wrong about Republicans, she writes. The bulk of Slander, in fact, is a well-documented brief dedicated to the proposition that most of the media despises anybody whose political opinions lie an inch to the right of the New York Times editorial page. This is hardly an original observation, though few have presented it with such verve. Coulter is the shock-jock of right-wing political commentary, able to dash off page after page of over-the-top but hilarious one-liners: "Liberals dispute slight reductions in the marginal tax rates as if they are trying to prevent Charles Manson from slaughtering baby seals." There's a certain amount of irony about an author who says "liberals prefer invective to engagement" also declaring, "The good part of being a Democrat is that you can commit crimes, sell out your base, bomb foreigners, and rape women, and the Democratic faithful will still think you're the greatest." But then carefully measured criticism never has been Coulter's shtick--or her appeal. Fans of Rush Limbaugh and admirers of Bernard Goldberg's Bias won't want to miss Slander.
