This Week in Media Bias History: Either You Are a Liberal... or a Racist

September 8th, 2018 12:15 PM

Which type of person are you? A liberal... or a racist? That’s the no-win scenario liberal journalist Bryant Gumbel created for conservatives on the September 5, 1989 edition of the Today show. 

Speaking of classic liberal bias, remember the late Peter Jennings? The World News Tonight anchor, who was raised in Canada, talked about his early distaste for America: “My mother... was pretty anti-American. And so I was, in some respects, raised with anti-Americanism in my blood — or in my mother’s milk, at least."
