I get my daily information from the bbc, my local newspaper, the Wall Street Journal and various different news outlets, including Fox news. I watch
TV less often. Luckily, I maintained critical thinking skills and can tell that Fox news has a conservative bias, even while watching it. A curse to
have these skills, I tell you.
The Wall Street Journal seems to be moderate-ish, with a conservative bias, but a focus on good journalism.
It is less obvious, but I believe the other mainstream media outlets HAD a liberal bias... until around the BP oil spill disaster. Now, I'm not sure.
I haven't really watched any since then, but noticed a general trend towards ultra-conservative leave the weak in the dust phrasing increase.
My hometown newspaper seems to have become more conservative lately, to the point that it is kind of getting scary.
The liberal arts school I graduated from had a complete liberal bias, almost to the point of communism. It was obvious while there, but much more
obvious once I came back home to my small, conservative town.
BBC... seems to be in the middle somewhere. Lately, it appears to have gotten more conservative than a year ago, however, possibly mirroring a trend
based on the global economic crisis crunching resources?
Even this site used to be a little more fun-loving, but one can tell that the topics are getting darker in the same manner.
Hmm... I'm interested in watching MSNBC and CNN now.
