Running the numbers

Media Matters analyzes the major news talk shows and clearly debunks the whiny claim of liberal bias.
In short, the Sunday talk shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC are dominated by conservative voices, from newsmakers to commentators. The data from the Clinton years indicate that the disparity cannot be explained simply by the fact that Republicans currently control the government.
I'm sure that The Persecuted will simply say that the bias is inherent in everday coverage, but they see shadows in every corner. Today's press is practically an arm of the rightwing noise machine.
