What Journalists Really Think — And What The Public Thinks About Them

 

 

 

” Media Bias 101 summarizes decades of survey research showing how journalists vote, what journalists think, what the public thinks about the media, and what journalists say about media bias. The following links take you to dozens of different surveys, with key findings and illustrative charts.

Part One: What Journalists Think

  Surveys over the past 30 years have consistently found that journalists — especially those at the highest ranks of their profession — are much more liberal than rest of America. They are more likely to vote liberal, more likely to describe themselves as liberal, and more likely to agree with the liberal position on policy matters than members of the general public.

 

Part Two: How the Public Views the Media

  A wide variety of public opinion polls have documented the fact that most Americans now see the media as politically biased, inaccurate, intrusive, and a tool of powerful interests. By a nearly three-to-one margin, those who see political bias believe the media bend their stories to favor liberals.

 

Part Three: What Journalists Say about Media Bias

  Over the years, the Media Research Center has catalogued the views of journalists on the subject of bias. In spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many journalists still refuse to acknowledge that most of the establishment media tilts to the left. Even so, a number of journalists have admitted that the majority of their brethren approach the news from a liberal angle. “

 

    This is one article that the reader does not want to miss . It should be bookmarked and saved as a research tool for all bloggers and independent thinkers as it is a comprehensive collection of links to studies and documentation amassed over thirty years demonstrating the corruption of the “fifth estate” and it’s collusion with the state . Each of the headings listed above is just a lead-in to the collected links pertaining to each of the subjects described . The entire study is available as a PDF download at MRC .

The Best Notable Quotables 2013

 

Ed Schultz

” Welcome to the Media Research Center’s annual awards issue, a compilation of the most outrageous and/or humorous news media quotes from 2013 (December 2012 through November 2013).

  To determine this year’s winners, a panel of 42 radio talk show hosts, magazine editors, columnists, editorial writers, and expert media observers each selected their choices for the first, second and third best quote from a slate of five to seven quotes in each category [List of Judges]. First place selections were awarded three points, second place choices two points, with one point for the third place selections. Point totals are listed alongside each quote. Each judge was also asked to choose a “Quote of the Year” denoting the most outrageous quote of 2013.

  The MRC’s Cassandre Durocher distributed the ballots and tabulated the results. Senior news analyst Scott Whitlock helped produce the numerous audio and video clips included in the Web-posted version. Rich Noyes and Brent Baker assembled this issue and Brad Ash posted the entire package to the MRC’s Web site.

Ed Schultz

“This is the Web site folks, HealthCare.gov. If you go to this Web site, you will find out how easy it is to read, how easy it is to navigate all the information, all the basic questions, and all the direction you need to take to get involved, to get health care. This is a great guide, if I may say, for any of you out there who feel so confused by all of these right-wing commercials that are just permeating through your television screen.”
— Host Ed Schultz on MSNBC’s The Ed Show, September 30.”

Just one of the many idiotic highlights from the media on MRC’s list .

Video: Obama Is The Loser Of The Year, Says …

 

Loser Of The Year

 

” A moment of epiphany from Morning Joe today, and from an unlikely source. Chris Matthews, who’s known for feeling thrills rather than chills about Barack Obama, acknowledged today what has become the consensus view everywhere but on certain segments of his own network (via Newsbusters): 

 

JOE SCARBOROUGH, HOST: Let me ask you losers, political losers of the year?

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Terrible year for the president. I mean, it’s terrible, this…

SCARBOROUGH: Can you go back a year? One year ago, the president was getting ready for his second inauguration. So much hope. This has been a terrible year.

MATTHEWS: There’s another piece of it which you’re subtly getting at. It’s not just that it’s a bad year in terms of the rollout. There’s an erosion in interest. It feels like a very long presidency now. It feels like the seventh or eighth year of a presidency. “

Bozell, Varney Discuss Networks’ Nearly 3-Month Blackout of Damning Revelations in IRS Scandal

 

 

” An incredulous Stuart Varney brought NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell on his Varney & Co. program this morning to discuss how  “[t]he mainstream media [have been] completely ignoring one the the biggest news stories of the year,” by devoting zero news stories to the IRS scandal since July.

“Is that accurate, they haven’t even mentioned it since those dates we put up on the screen?!” Varney asked Bozell at the segment. “It’s fascinating and so troubling” because we have “one of the greatest abuses in my lifetime, the greatest abuse of federal power ever, where you’re using the most-feared arm of government  against the people and you’re seeing one revelation after another” which the networks simply refuse to cover. “

Liberal Radio Pundit: Missile Strike On NRA Gathering Would End Obama’s Problems

 

 

 

 

” While appearing on the Stephanie Miller radio program on Monday, Lee Papa, a liberal pundit who goes by the name of the “Rude Pundit” suggested that a missile strike on theNRA convention in Houston would have “taken out” most of Obama’s problems,Newsbusters reported. Worse yet, Miller agreed.

“You know I was thinking this weekend, if Barack Obama is really as evil as everybody says he is just one errant missile shot in Houston would really have taken out most of his problem,” Papa said.

“Yeah,” Miller responded.

“Barack Obama isn’t just the greatest president ever, he’s also an especially kind man. After all, His Worship has every right to blow political opponents to smithereens, yet repeatedly declines the opportunity,” Newsbusters said.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rewriting The Bible: The Gospel According To Liberals

 

 

 

 

” When liberals and their media allies have an agenda to push, they’ll use any tool at hand. The left often rails against the presence of religion in civic life, mocking conservative Christians as “Taliban” agitating for theocracy. But other times, they find faith to be a handy weapon to bludgeon conservatives. And they’ll go so far as to reinterpret and rewrite the Bible to justify any liberal cause, no matter how outrageous.

In 2010, MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry summed up this strategy in her call for “re-imagining the Bible as a tool of progressive social change.” Huffington Post contributor Mike Lux embraced Harris-Perry’s advice, writing that the Bible embodies “all kinds” of “liberal, lefty, progressive values.”

The Media Research Center’s Culture and Media Institute analyzed the various ways liberals and the media have used and abused the Bible to mock religion, attack conservatives and justify left-wing policy.

Harris-Perry’s “re-imagining” of the Bible has become a favorite liberal tactic, as journalists and politicians have cited it to promote socialism, gay marriage, abortion and a host of other progressive policies. Washington Post “On Faith” contributor Anthony Stevens-Arroyo argued that the Bible was the inspiration for Karl Marx’s dictum “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” Huffington Post contributor Kittredge Cherry claimed Jesus Christ was a homosexual: “Christ lives in every individual of every different shade of sexual orientation and gender identity.” Writer Nynia Chance proclaimed that the Bible supported abortion on RH Reality Check: “there’s times where the Bible states God commands that one [abortion] take place.” “

 

Where Will Obama Rank in Presidential History?

 

 

Obama Ranking

 

 

“Just how much do Obama supporters love the president? MRCTV was  at the National Mall for the Inaugural celebration and asked attendees what position Obama would hold if they had to rank all U.S. president’s from best to worst.

Keep in mind, that Obama has only just started his second term.

I’m sure if it goes as smoothly as his first, his legacy will shine even more brightly in the eyes of these supporters.”

 ‘I Know The Urge To Arm Yourself Because That’s What I Did’

 

 

 

Feinstein

 

 

“I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me.”

 

 

And Harry Reid

” We hear a lot about guns and self-defense and that’s good, I understand that. I was a police officer where I carried a gun and as some of you know during my time being Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, I had a lot of bad people after me and I carried a gun every place I went. So I know what a gun and self-defense is.”

 

 

Bozell Blasts ABC, CBS, and NBC For Censoring Footage of Union Violence

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell reacts:

The pro-union broadcast networks are deliberately censoring footage of thuggish union violence directed at conservatives. If a Tea Partier had physically assaulted a liberal journalist or ripped down a structure occupied by a liberal organization all on video, the footage would be broadcast on an endless loop. ABC, CBS, and NBC have a responsibility to the American people to expose what’s really happening in Michigan. Their double standard is absolutely outrageous.”

 

 

 

 

Fiscal Cliff: ABC Talks Taxes 17 Times More Than Spending Cuts

 

 ” America is racing toward the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff deadline when tax hikes and spending cuts automatically take effect. But the overwhelming news focus has been only on tax hikes as a solution to the problem. Since the election, ABC News has talked about raising taxes more than 17 times more than spending cuts.

The network isn’t alone, it was just the worst of the bunch. The Media Research Center’s Business and Media Institute analyzed evening news coverage of the budget battle and found both NBC and CBS also discussed taxes far more than spending – spinning the Capitol Hill battle into one where the liberal agenda of increased spending dominated. Overall, the networks focused more than twice as much on tax increases as they did on spending (29 minutes 31 seconds to 12 minutes 54 seconds). “
