Press Accuracy Rating Hits Two Decade Low: Overview - Pew Research Center for the People & the Press: "...only about a quarter (26%) now say that news organizations are careful that their reporting is not politically biased, compared with 60% who say news organizations are politically biased."
And they hold conferences to figure out why newspaper circulation and network TV news viewing are plummeting. Part of it is the internet, but bias is the other part. The bias is so obvious that a person would have to be a complete fool not to see it, and when you can't trust the news coverage, why not figure it out yourself from the web? All the Brokaw types are pontificating about how badly we need them to serve as a "filter," but that would only be true if they weren't filtering it with such a blatant agenda. The coverage (and non-coverage) of the conservative march on Washington over the weekend is a great example.
