News media bias: Liberal or Conservative

posted: 09/07/2016 5 a.m.

Often in today's conflict-oriented world of public opinion, we hear spokespersons from opposite points of view complaining about "media bias." Conservatives today often complain that the media, (newspapers, television networks, magazines, and so on), is biased in favor of liberal viewpoints. On the other hand, liberals, in similar fashion, often contend that their views are either suppressed or inaccurately represented by conservative publishers. Since I am often comparing what we see in today's world to what we saw in earlier times, I am moved to take on this difficult subject of journalism, news reporting and editorial opinion writing, in the times we live in now, as well as in earlier days of my lifetime.
