the media: still in love with the Right, after all these years

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

MediaMatters has released the results of a new study of the political bias of Sunday talk show guests: “If It’s Sunday, It’s Conservative.” Here is the summary, the graphs (300KB PDF), and the full report (335KB PDF).

I wish that MediaMatters had, for the sake of completeness, included the ever-conservative Fox (Faux) and the formerly-moderate-becoming-conservative CNN and MSNBC (MSGOP) in their study.

Washington Monthly has two pieces on the study, one from Paul Waldman (“John Fund again? It’s not your imagination—the Sunday shows really do lean right”), and one from Kevin Drum (“The Usual Suspects”).

Media bias: it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
