This is Great

Michael Barone of RealClearPolitics has an article about media bias.

I remember a conversation I had with a broadcast news executive many years ago.

"Doesn't the fact that 90 percent of your people are Democrats affect your work product?" I asked.

"Oh, no, no," he said. "Our people are professional. They have standards of objectivity and professionalism, so that their own views don't affect the news."

"So what you're saying," I said, "is that your work product would be identical if 90 percent of your people were Republicans."

He quickly replied, "No, then it would be biased."

What about the statistic of liberal school teachers? I guarantee you they'd say the same "biased" line if the stats were reversed.
