    While the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is conservative, the newspaper's news pages are liberal, even more liberal than The New York Times. The Drudge Report may have a right-wing reputation, but it leans left. Coverage by public television and radio is conservative compared to the rest of the mainstream media. Meanwhile, almost all major media outlets tilt to the left.

    The fourth most centrist outlet was "Special Report With Brit Hume" on Fox News, which often is cited by liberals as an egregious example of a right-wing outlet. While this news program proved to be right of center, the study found ABC's "World News Tonight" and NBC's "Nightly News" to be left of center. All three outlets were approximately equidistant from the center, the report found.


    brit's show is the best

    I'm awaiting a study on the Jewish dominance of the media, but I doubt UCLA or anyone else has the stones to take THAT on.

    I don't think we needed some college professor to tell us that most of the media is left-wing biased.

    The sad thing is...we DID need a professor to tell us this. Because there were/are many, MANY people who still, for some reason, do not believe that the majority of major news outlets slant left.

    FLASH!!!!!

    In addition to finding that there is liberal bias in the media, researchers at UCLA have made these equally stunning discoveries....

    1. The sky is blue
    2. There is no Santa
    3. WWF wrestling is staged
    4. The world is not flat
    5. 1 +1 = 2
    6. The moon is not made of green cheese
    7. If you live long enough, you will die
    8. Dogs chase cats
    9. The sun rises once each day
    10. Triangles have 3 sides while squares have 4

    DEVELOPING.....
