Liberal Media Increasingly Marginalized

March 14th, 2007 10:47 PM

Two stories at Memeorandum couldn't be more well timed to show just how marginalized liberal media is becoming in America today.

The liberals at Think Progress are celebrating a debate to be hosted by CNN, as opposed to Fox. As one may still appear on Fox, they are keeping the pressure on Democrats.

Then along comes Zogby with some actually relevant information, unlike the foolish post above where liberals are thrilled at the prospect of speaking to a smaller audience.

Americans are identifying and rejecting liberal media bias as much as ever, meanwhile the liberals, CNN and MSNBC struggle to marginalize themselves even more. Ya gotta love it!

The vast majority of American voters believe media bias is alive and well – 83% of likely voters said the media is biased in one direction or another, while just 11% believe the media doesn’t take political sides, a recent IPDI/Zogby Interactive poll shows.

The Institute for Politics, Democracy, and the Internet is based at George Washington University in Washington D.C.

Nearly two-thirds of those online respondents who detected bias in the media (64%) said the media leans left, while slightly more than a quarter of respondents (28%) said they see a conservative bias on their TV sets and in their column inches. The survey, which focuses on perceptions of the “old” and “new” media, will be released today at the PoliticsOnline Conference 2007 at GWU. It is also featured in the March issue of Zogby’s Real America newsletter, now available at Zogby dot com.
