The media has a conservative bias...
Advertisements [?]

Unfortunately for them, the truth has a liberal bias.

Most news organizations are owned by some large corporation. Therefore, the reporters for these large news organizations are prohibited from telling the truth if it affects the corporation that owns them. For example, tax breaks that are favorable to their owner are seldom reported on at all and, it they are, they are reported inaccurately.

But, it is not just taxes - it is any story that might affect the owner corporation. Their reporters know, without having to be told, that they are not permitted to cross a certain line. This is with all the major news outlets that we watch on television, including MSNBC, owned by General Electric.

They are biased toward the wealthy, toward corporations, toward the military, toward tax policies, toward "free trade", against social spending, against anything that might cost their corporation more money, etc....

Any non-sense that comes from the Republican Party, the Establishment Party, is assumed to be credible and anything that comes from the Democratic Party is assumed to be questionable? The media is the biggest obstacle to making any progress in this country at this time...
