    you have to be either totally joking, or from the planet zardoz. The frigin media could not be more un-abashedly liberal if it tried. Not a true fact amongst ANY report they. Facts: something to be manipulated to their warped socialist point of view. Trayvon Martin--victim of racists attack, white kid beaten by 3 black kist on bus--not newsworthy, nothing to see here, move along.

    This is so blatantly false (the original post) that the writers pants should have caught on fire.

    Spanz. The Trayvon Martin murder happened to happen on a slow news day. They needed something to talk about and this is something they knew they could ride out. The other story wouldnt have garnered nearly as much attention and not as many people would have tuned in. All new stations are about making money. If you think any differently, you are absolutely retarded. The article is correct though. You cant argue with the facts that are presented in the blog. Well you can, but they would still be facts.

    Bophus, really? These things are common on most of the media. Have you seen the recent cover of Time?? It`s literally about bees.

    However, I would actually disagree about that bee story being liberal (among many of these here) How would reporting about bee disappearances be liberal??? Seriously, how? Is it that pesticides are a Conservative thing? I don`t get it.

    Everything else is a daily occurrence in the media. You have to be living under a rock not to think the non-fox media isn`t liberal. Either that, or you are so inextricably in left field.

    It`s not healthy to have a media that isn`t critical.

    Other things are just dumb, like House Republicans blocking bills. What about Senate Democrats sitting on bills? It`s the same thing. It`s a divided congress. The Republicans in the House block the ones they don`t agree with, the Democrats in the Senate block theirs. Why is it only blocking when one side does it?

    - Also, everyone is aware of outsourcing? Seriously, you didn`t know that?

    Gerrymandering - this is big misconception among non-critical thinkers. If you thought critically, you would know that if we were obligated to draw every district as a square, it would benefit Republicans even more than currently. Why?

    Where Democrats live, they live densely. Republicans are spread more evenly. They have no Manhattan, San Fran, Cook County. They don`t.

    So let`s say you have 10 people and 10 districts of 10 people each. The Democrats live densely, so there will be more districts with a higher concentration of Democrats. Let`s say:

    D
    District 1 - 8D/2R
    District 2 - 7D/3R
    District 3 - 6D/4R
    District 4 - 6D/4R
    R
    District 5 - 4D/6R
    District 6 - 4D/6R
    District 7 -4D/6R
    District 8 -4D/6R
    District 9 -4D/6R
    District 10 - 3D/7R

    And because of that, voters in this non-gerrymandered situation can and would be split 50/50, yet still skew to any population that is less densely populated.

    Cajun247: No I don`t see where you left anything out.

    But on Gerrymandering, nearly every state has it, BAD, and both parties do it equally. I know Maryland has it going on hard core, and the Gerrymandering war between democrats and republicans in virginia was well documented and openly verbalised. The democrats vowed to regain control of it by redistricting and republicans told them it would never happen again an Gerrymandered it their own way. I`ll try to find a districting simulator, but I watched one in my Political Science class. You can have exactly equal votes and change it to a majority for either party, even with all the stipulations that are required. I remember my teacher saying "politics is the science of giving power to your vote; it used to be about suppressing the power of your opponents vote, currently it is about making your own vote count more."

    I don`t know why this article thinks that honeybees are a liberal issue, but they are dying all around the world and no one knows why. They are calling it Colony Collapse Disorder. Most studies are pointing to several factors including a pesticide called imidacloprid, an increase in the number of Varroa mites, Israeli acute paralysis virus, and Nosema fungus.

    To be frank, the whole district method of electing officials would be impossible to not abuse. And, like I said earlier, even if they were perfect squares they would still work against populations that are more dense.


    Point is - a new way would be better. Perhaps a popular vote within the state and awarding reps proportionally.

    Plus gerrymandering can also take place by enacted laws that govern redistricting like when you have federally mandated "minority-majority" districts to give minority voters a larger voice.

    For example, the African-American vote has been historically for the democrats since 1944. But they have multiples of these districts, the most of any minority. This almost always gives democrats a free district but also lumps more Republican together into a single vote. And this is in over 45 different states from California to New York to Georgia to Alabama. And thats just for African Americans, there are districts for Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics too.

    Here is a redistricting simulator, not sure how good it is. But it should show that how the districts are laid out has more to do with an election than the number of voters.

    While we`re on the subject of gerrymandering, take a look at Corrine, the buffoon, Brown`s district in N. Florida. Jacksonville and south. In some places it`s less than 3 blocks wide to build her constituency.

    Easy way to illuminate gerrymandering - get rid of districts. X number of congressmen based on state population and who cares where in the state they live.

    Then get rid of the Senate...it`s redundant and useless.

    "Seriously? It`s already too easy pass laws. It needs to be harder."
    The Congress proposes new laws...adds pork..then passes them. The Senate rewrites them into something unintended then adds more pork and back to the Congress for more pork.... We don`t need the Senate. It slows the process down and nothing gets done.

    The media is OBVIOUSLY biased. Some liberal, and some conservative. I live in a blue state, and I can say without a doubt that the local news has a liberal bias. Just because their bias fits my agenda the slight majority of the time does not make it right. A true news outlet should not have a bias...it should simply show news, and not be selective about what news, and how it is presented.

    I fully appreciate the first amendment and our rights to free press. I do have a feeling that our press is corrupted by political and "special" interests.

    I submitted this because I thought it would probably spark some interesting discussion and a few really stupid posts. (Check!) I figured most would summarily dismiss it with barely a glance, a few would take it personally and lash out, and one or two might read it all in order to nitpick and debunk the finer details of minutia. And I expected one particular individual to completely miss the point and go off on a multi-post tirade to prove how blindly conservative he is. I was not disappointed!

    You never fail to live down to expectations, do you? First off, the word is *BEREFT*, not BERIFT (As in, 5Cats is bereft of critical thinking skills.) Second, no one is making the claim that these issues are "Right Wing MEDIA`S fault" or that "Obama made things better" or "Liberal Media would `fix this`" or any of the other stupid poo you raved on about. (Are you really that brainwashed?) Third, the point of this article (yes, there was only one despite all your "debunking") is this: If our media is so liberal, why are we liberals so frustrated with it? As the article clearly says, "I`d like to go on record and state that the MEDIA ISN`T FOCUSING ON ISSUES I CARE ABOUT. They seem to be far more focused on entertainment and making money." The article is simply a list of 15 things that TRUE LIBERALS care very much about, and that a TRULY LIBERAL media would be trumpeting loudly every day.

    But to answer the question of why do liberal media outlets not focus more on their politics and instead on entertainment is because, it is shown that liberal audiences respond more to being entertained than informed. One reason why the the rating are higher for John Stewart compared to any host at MSNBC. Despite that the pew research center has shown that only 2% of John`s audience tunes in for "in-depth" reporting where the leading liberal percentage of 19% of Chris Matthews Hardball viewership tune in for that reason.

    Okay richanddead, I appreciate your attempt. How about backing up that claim? I tried searching tv.msnbc.com and, as a liberal, I have to disagree with you.
    MSNBC on Outsourcing
    MSNBC on wealth inequality
    On "American Legislative Exchange Council"
    Glass-Steagall

    I could go on, but the bottom line is your MOST liberal and left-wing outlet (MSNBC) doesn`t even come close to adequately covering what real liberals want covered.

    And what do you define as a "real liberal" and secondly, if you think that MSNBC is not liberal enough do you think you might be part of the fringe and not the majority, in all seriousness, I would ask the same of someone who though FOX was not conservative enough.

    Please cite a credible source for that incredible claim.
    "One reason why the the rating are higher for John Stewart compared to any host at MSNBC"
    Could it really be the fact that entertainment shows will ALWAYS out-rate news shows? You cannot compare Comedy Central to MSNBC (or ANY "news" outlet). The fact that even 2% claim to watch the Daily Show for its "in-depth reporting" is rather scary, about on par with the 11% who get their "in-depth" from FOX.

    "Please cite a credible source for that incredible claim."

    It is a rational conclusion that can be drawn by the age of the viewers, the reasons they watch, and the ratings for each.

    "is rather scary, about on par with the 11% who get their "in-depth" from FOX."

    Firstly your comparing a network as a whole with individuals. But still if you look at the two networks, a 1% difference between the two most politically polar news outlets is not a landslide.

    "Could it really be the fact that entertainment shows will ALWAYS out-rate news shows?"

    No actually, in fact several FOX hosts have higher ratings than the Daily Show, not saying i agree with why he says and especially how he says it, but Glenn Beck finished 12th in 2010 slightly ahead of john stuart who was 13th.

    I don`t think you`re stupid. What I was trying to show was that your claim of
    "They have covered everyone of these issues in a way that you`d prefer and is listed in the article." is incorrect. Take the "Outsourcing" search, for example. The first result simply lists outsourcing as one bullet-point the House could have done instead of endless pointless votes to repeal Obamacare. The next two are book reviews. The next one claims that "outsourcing (is) less appealing" now. The point is, a TRULY LIBERAL AGENDA would have criticism of outsourcing visible and vocal practically every day! MSNBC barely touched it. The same holds true for the other links, and for the others I didn`t link.

    Hey, I might be "part of the fringe" for all I know, but the evidence points the other way. From your own link (albeit a prior page):
    "The percentage of liberal Democrats who say they enjoy keeping up with the news a lot has fallen 22 points, from 67% in 2008 to 45% currently. The decline is 12 points among conservative and moderate Democrats (58% to 46%). By contrast, opinions among Republicans and independents have shown little change." If the media was so overwhelmingly liberal, shouldn`t that trend be reversed?

    I`m not sure about everyday, but I know both Chris Matthews, Andrea Mitchell, and Ed Schultz definitely talked about it, especially when they talked about the Immigration Bill. And the Dylan Ratigan show has talked about outsourcing directly. They always pull on Peter Morici or Bernie Sanders when they want a guest, I`ll look for some stories later but I know they`ve done it. I actually need to go to the Bank but I be back later, but i remember nearly everyone of those points being mentioned, though that may not be the title of the show.

    @chalket: You forget who`s been in the White House for the past 5 years?
    You forget what happens to ANYONE who DARES question "The One"?
    THAT is why.
    There is no more "Blame Bush" coverage because that was 5 YEARS AGO! Even the most UBER-LIBTARD cannot dredge up reasons to BB over Benghazi... but they still try!!!

    All the problems which would normally be blamed on the PotUS? CANNOT BE SPOKEN OF!

    ALL NEWS must come with a White House Approved "Liberal Spin" which dumbs it down to Kindergarten levels (for Liberals to understand, and for those nasty `facts` to be omitted).

    Claiming "things would be better IF" implicitly implies that things are BAD now! Duh!

    Spelling Nazi? That`s the best "answer" you can come up with?

    Lamesauce is highly liberal.

    If the media was so overwhelmingly liberal, shouldn`t that trend be reversed?
    See? Here`s where you fail to understand the most BASIC of facts: Liberal Bias is NOT NEW! It`s been around, strongly for 30+ years!
    Only now there`s OTHER sources for TRUTHFUL news, so the MSM monopoly is broken.
    Faced with the choice of MSM Liberal Lies or "other" many people have chosen... "other". ANYTHING is better!

    That doesn`t "prove" the MSM is "Right Wing" HAHAHA! It just proves that the average citizen is SICK of Liberal Bias!

    why are we liberals so frustrated with it?
    You Liberals are simply frustrated that ANY voice besides your own is heard. There is no room in "Liberalism" for truth, facts or discussion: only ONE POV is allowed.

    8:18:17 AM @chalket claims MSM `not covering important news`
    9:13:05 AM @chalket LINKS lots of coverage...

    Doublespeak is very, very

    Denying liberal bias in the regular media is like denying a Conservative bias on Fox. It`s just really dumb. I mean seriously, just watch the stations before election time and you`ll see the difference. And all the things listed here are talked about on a daily basis. You`ll even hear about them on Fox among liberal commentators. This is really dumb, I mean for real.

    All this Biasing BS is why I listen to other sources for news such as BBC. There is Less BS and more news (Except for Kate`s Late Mate biproduct)

    Here we see 5-Cats forgetting that 95% of all economic problems come from 2 very unwinnable wars a Christian madman told lies to start. We still blame Bush,but short of forcing him to act like an adult and give up his millions from oil trading he made on oil from said wars,what can you do to "The Patriot Act" president?
    We`ll just stop voting for moron republicans...Oh wait,we did. Who you got in 2016? Bet we could run Howie Mandell against whatever idiot you can muster.

    And here we see a lemming refusing to acknowledge his messiah is not stopping one of those wars probably because there`s a good reason behind it. Along with that whole increase in drone strikes in other countries.

    In 2011, according to FBI statistics, whites accounted for 69.2% of arrests.

    Lets talk about bias see like this arrests do not equal a felony or jailtime it`s playing with the numbers. Blacks make up a majority in prison for a good reason their culture embraces being a peice of crap and no one speaks up about it just points the finger.

    Even that`s not entirely true. Don`t get me wrong it`s a significant fraction, but another part is that they can`t afford same quality legal defense like whites can for similar offenses. All-in-all the disparity can`t just be chalked up to one "particular" factor. It`s multi-causal.

    Oh please! One of the main things libs do is treat your opinion like your a total nutcase. Basically this says if you believe in a liberal media bias you are a complete lunatic. Classic lefty tactics 101. Of course there is liberal media bais; it`s freakin` everywhere! Anyone wanna catch that Hillary movie being put out by NBC next year? It`s not biased at all, honest!

    "I see, so you DID pull it out of your ass. Just so we all understand where your data comes from..."

    No the " the age of the viewers, the reasons they watch, and the ratings for each" are separate categories that are listed and polled. The study even says "younger people spend so much less time with the news than older people."

    But if I need to show you the number fine. 43% of the Daily show audience and 53% of the Colberts show audience watch for entertainment purposes, not in-depth reporting. Their audience is made 41% of the daily shows and 53% of the Colbert reports audience are between 18-29 years of age. Those are the numbers from the Pew research center not my ass.


    When you look at networks with older age groups like FOX and MSNBC. Even though 5% more young people watch Fox compared to MSNBC, 13% of MSNBC`s audience only watches for the entertainment value compared to the 5% of FOX`s audience that watches for the sa

    ...same reason.

    Secondly, I agree with most sentiments here that the TV news is has a heavy liberal bias, while Radio news has a major conservative slant. Infact 51% to 90% of any news outlets audience claim they see such a bias.
