The Media is Left Wing, Fire Burns and Water is Wet


Lara Logan, formerly of Sixty Minutes, tells us what all sentient people should already know:  the media in this country is strongly biased towards the Left:

The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just in the U.S. But in this country, 85% of journalists are registered Democrats – that’s just a fact. No one is registering Democrat when they’re really a Republican. So, the facts are on the side that you just stated: most journalists are Left, or liberal, or Democrat, or whatever word you wanna give it. How do you know you’re being lied to? How do you know you’re being manipulated? How do you know there’s something not right with the coverage? When they simplify it all and there’s no gray. There’s no gray. It’s all one way. Well, life isn’t like that. If it doesn’t match real life, it’s probably not — there’s something wrong.

Go here to read the rest.


Such rampant partisan bias has produced a situation in which half the population assumes they are being lied to by most of the media.  As a conservative I have lived with this throughout all my life.  I would not know how to react if we had an honest media.

More to explorer


  1. I see media bias when I watch my son on ABC’s ‘This Week’ Sunday Program with George Stephanopoulos. My son is the chief political analyst of ABC and is registered as an independent. He has worked as a political strategist for both Republican and Democrats. However, he is clearly anti-Trump. Most of the time he is the lead-off commenter on the Round Table and sets the tone. There are usually 4 others at the table with Democrats outnumbering Republicans. It seems to be my son’s job by adroit interruption and redirection to make sure the viewers take-away point of view is favorable to the Liberal position. Nonetheless, I think he is sincere about what he does and believes the Liberal ideas.

  2. The question is not, “When did they stop pretending to be journalists?” It’s, “When were they ever pretend to be journalists/”

    Why they fear and hate the truth. “Post-Modern journalism is all about determining which facts the public shouldn’t know because they might reflect badly on Democrats..” My paraphrase of Jim Treacher – Baloney, Deceit, Delusion, Democrat Fan Fiction, Fabrication, Fairy-Tale, Fake, Fantasy, Fraud, Hoax, Legend, Myth, Nightmare, Sham, Superstition, etc.

  3. Prior to about 1955, newspaper proprietors stamped their papers with their own image, rather than collecting the rents and letting reporters and editors do what they felt like. Of course, that begs the question of why those editors and reporters have been the way they’ve been.

    Recall that Bennett Cerf interviewed in 1971 said he and Arlene Francis were wary of Dorothy Kilgallen because (among other things) “we didn’t like her politics”. Kilgallen may have been the most prominent journalist in New York City at that time. She was a loyal Hearst girl and simply didn’t subscribe to the regnant liberalism abroad among Cerf’s circle of friends (which included Arlene Francis off-stage, but not Dorothy Kilgallen, who was merely a colleague). Both Killgallen and her father were capital-R Reporters. They loved covering stories, and her father didn’t file his last one until he was over 90. Now look at Robert Stacy McCain. He cut his teeth in his late 20s covering local sporting events down in Georgia. How many of the sort of people Ben Rhodes derided had that kind of apprenticeship?

    One thing we’ve seen: for about a century now people who trade in words and imagery are, increasingly, combatants in our social struggles and are, increasingly, uniform in their outlook. The democratization of communications after 1994 removed some gatekeepers, but now the tech companies are trying replace them. We know who they understand their enemy to be. Their enemy is us.

  4. And you thought slavery was abolished.

    The mechanism has changed but the tyrants are still the same. Slave owners are laughing however they never thought a Donald Trump could interfere with their plans. Enough Americans didn’t buy what the Liars in the media were selling.
    Thank God.

    Public Broadcasting Stations might be a good starting point. We fund them. So how does one gain access to the editorial decisions in a machine known as PBS?
    How can the narrative shift when the hands are constantly choking the neck to kill the truth?
