You have undoubtedly heard talking heads on the right complain about the “liberal media”. The right-wing manipulators ultimately justify their existence by describing themselves as a counter weight to the “liberal media”. This argument has been repeated, and repeated, and repeated. I’m here to tell you that it’s a load of what happens a couple days after male cows eat.
Are there liberal-biased outlets in the media? Of course! No one is going to argue that MSNBC isn’t left-leaning, or that the New York Times editorial board isn’t left leaning. Having a bias (one way or another) is, perhaps, natural. The right-wing media has long moved beyond bias. They manipulate facts on a daily basis, in order to create false opinions that mesh with their ideology. This hardly occurs on the left. There is no counter balance to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Fox News, Andrew Briebart, and nuts like James O’Keefe. To suggest otherwise is to create a false equivalency between right-wing manipulations and left-wing bias.
