Apparently, it’s not “media bias”…

March 27th, 2012

…it’s media blindness.

First, consider that journalists are overwhelmingly liberal.

Then understand that

in a survey of 2, healing 000 Americans, Haidt found that self-described liberals, especially those who called themselves “very liberal,” were worse at predicting the moral judgments of moderates and conservatives than moderates and conservatives were at predicting the moral judgments of liberals. Liberals don’t understand conservative values. And they can’t recognize this failing, because they’re so convinced of their rationality, open-mindedness and enlightenment.

So it’s not just that liberal reporters are biased against a conservative point of view…it seems they’re incapable of even seeing it in the first place.
