Blog 6: Bias in the media.

It is no surprise that some critics argue that media is bias. Especially in current times. Most Americans have heard about Fox News being conservative and outlets such as CNN being markedly liberal. In my research about media bias, I came across some interesting websites. Apparently conservatives are much more concerned about liberal bias. I found three websites accusing media of being liberally influenced and not one alleging the same for conservative bias.

Websites claiming to expose liberal media bias:

1. Exposing & Combating Liberal Media Bias.

2. Liberal Media Exposed

3. Exposing Liberal Media Bias

 

On the website “Exposing Liberal Media Bias”, they claim:

Sound scientific research shows that liberal bias in the media does exist and undermines traditional American values. Conservatives must neutralize its impact on the American political scene.

It is apparent that either the liberals own the media, or conservatives are extremely concerned about liberal influence on America. Either case, it is definitely apparent that the public has been and will most likely continue to be concerned with media bias for a very long time.

As far as I am concerned, the media is bias for the most part. There can be instances where non-bias media available to the general public. It just has to be found. One website that features supposedly non-bias media is Media Matters for America. This website credits itself as being a media watchdog. As long as there is so-called bias media, there will be outlets that consider themselves to be watchdogs and non-bias.
