According to a new study by two professors of journalism at Indiana University, only 7 percent of journalists identify as Republican, and apparently when they donate money to candidates, it’s usually Democrats.
Self-proclaimed Democrat journalists outnumber Republican journalists a whopping 4-to-1.
Gee, biased reporting much?
Via Washington Times:
Among Washington correspondents, the ones who dominate national political coverage, it’s even more skewed, said Tim Groseclose, author of “Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind.” More than 90 percent of D.C. journalists vote Democratic, with an even higher number giving to Democrats or liberal-leaning political action committees, the author said.
“There’s something in the DNA of liberals that makes them want to go into jobs like the arts, journalism and academia more so than conservatives,” Mr. Groseclose said. “Even if you’re just trying to maximize profits by offering an alternative point of view, it’s hard to find conservative reporters. So it’s natural the media is more liberal.”
Then again, our so-called media is controlled by a whole FOUR companies these days, so it is possible that it is more biased and agenda-driven than ever before in the history of the nation.
