Tired of Media Bias? You and Everyone Else

September 15, 2009 | NeW Staff

If you’re like me, you’re sick and tired of media bias. When you turn on the news during the day or open up a news source online, you make a wish that maybe, just this once, the media hasn’t aired their own opinion and slanted the news story. Or better yet, you’re hoping they’ve actually reported on the news. All of it. Now, isn’t that a novel concept?

Shockingly, it’s become that difficult for the media simply to report on the facts. On a plane ride home last week, I listened to two individuals sitting behind him complaining about the fact that you can’t read the “News” section of the paper without getting the “Opinion” section mixed into it. As I recall, that’s not good journalism.  In fact, it’s bad journalism.  And yet, the media continues to misreport, ignore, and sensationalize the news.
Well, good news, folks. You’re not alone in your frustration.  A recent poll by the PEW research center announced that the accuracy rating for the press has reached its lowest point in 20 years.  Only 29% of those surveyed say they believe the news is accurate. 
29%?!?! Isn’t that astonishing? Maybe this report will stop the media dead in their tracks and realize that Americans are really tuning them out.

It was freshman year, and I had just “outed” myself as a conservative for the first time at college. “[Since] I ‘came out’ as a conservative,...
