Eric Alterman uses his piece at AlterNet, "Debunking the Myth of a 'Liberal Media'" to do exactly what the title promises. He eviscerates the recent study "A Measure of Media Bias" (330KB PDF) for its severe flaws. He observes, after noting some of the study's methodological shortcomings, that the study
was the product of a significant investment by right-wing think tanks. In 2000-2001, Groseclose was a Hoover Institution national fellow, while Milyo has been granted $40,500 from the American Enterprise Institute. Both were Heritage Foundation Salvatori fellows in 1997.
