    Hannity, Rush and Foxnews seem to have put a dent into their bias. Lets just hope it continues.

    Did this survey mention anything about the decision makers at these papers - that is the editors and publishers who tend to be overwhelmingly conservative?

    If they were overwhelmingly conservative as you suggest, how then would the publication be considered liberaly biased? Your assertion, on it's face, make no sense.

    Your statement makes no sense. My argument is that it doesn't matter what the politics of the peons are - it matters what the politics of those who actually decide what goes into the paper or on the TV are. There have been numerous articles, including by this same source, one of which I sourced in another thread on this topic showing than editors and publishers are OVERWHELMINGLY - I'm talking by 3 to 1 margins conservative.

    I understood your point and perhaps I am dense here, but seems you are still making the same point and that is...the decision makers are conservative...but the paeons as you call them...the ones writing the so called left leaning articles do so at the direction of the editors, or in the very least their work is condoned by the editors.

    If the editors are as you suggest conservative, why would they promote or direct the inclusion of such left leaning articles? I mean what are their motives and intentions? It just not make sense. Or...are you suggesting some nefarious agenda?

    If your argument is one of editorial credibility due to someone of a conservative viewpoint working for a left leaning publication, then I might tend to agree. However, I would submit if that were the case, then the credibility of the entire publication be suspect.
