Bias in the News: Blame it on Their Zip Code

Bias

For years, journalists have bristled at allegations of liberal bias in the news.  “If you think we have a bias,” some of them would say, “that only proves one thing:  that you’re the one with the bias.”  When my book Bias came out at the end of 2001 –despite a surprisingly good review in the…

A Few Words about Rush …

Limbaugh

There are many things I like about Rush Limbaugh.  I’ve been on his radio show 4 or 5 times.  He was generous enough to do an interview with me, which I published in my last book, A Slobbering Love Affair.  He has read things on the air that I have written and complimented me about…

Now that Andy Rooney is calling it quits after 1,097 TV essays on 60 Minutes, I thought I’d like to share a little story regarding something Andy said about Dan Rather, me, and liberal bias in the news. My first book, Bias, came out ten years ago and caused quite a stir.  Liberal journalists hated…

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. This phrase rings no truer than when it comes to most of the media’s feelings toward Republican politicians. The photo to the left was posted Wednesday on CNN’s website as the featured image for an article describing Republican Bob Turner’s Congressional seat win in New York. While…
