Only 7 Percent of Journalists are Republicans

153

For the people who still think the mainstream media is not hopelessly biased against conservatism and Republicans, a new study from Indiana University might give you something to think about. Researchers took a survey of journalists and found that, while there may be some debate about how politically slanted the news is, there’s not much debate about the bias of the journalists themselves.

The results speak for themselves. Only 7 percent of journalists call themselves Republicans. When journalists give money to political causes, they opt for the Democrats. 28 percent of journalists identify as Democrats. That’s four times the number of Republicans. And who can even begin to know what political biases lurk in the heads of journalists who call themselves “independent.” Just keep in mind that “independent” doesn’t always mean “somewhere in the middle.”

But those results, stark as they are, don’t really even begin to tell the real truth about our nation’s political news coverage. According to a report from author Tim Groseclose, the field is really off-balance when you limit your survey to Washington journalists. Among the correspondents who bring us the stories that specifically shape how we view D.C. politics, more than 90 percent of them vote for Democrats.

Imagine what kinds of ideas about the world you might have if 90 percent of your teachers had been active atheists.

How would you view women if 90 percent of the people you grew up around despised them?

How would you look at America if 90 percent of your role models wanted to see it destroyed?

Mainstream news outlets have less control over the American psyche than they used to, but don’t think for a second that their day is through. You can have all the blogs and independent news sources in the world, and it doesn’t change the fact that most of the original reporting is coming from the same old journalists. It may be filtered through this lens or that lens by the time it gets to you, but it’s still the same source. It doesn’t matter if you watch it at 6:30 or read it on your phone.

And it’s not enough to just “be aware” of it. That’s a start – and a good one – but it’s not enough. You can be entranced by a point of view even when you know that it’s biased. Especially if you’ve been brainwashed for so long that you no longer really have a center of balance.

And it’s especially not enough to say, well, there’s always Fox News. Fox News is not seen as a counter-balance to the mainstream media, at least not by the mainstream media. It’s seen as a far-right organization…the conservative equivalent of MSNBC. But MSNBC is the outlier here. It’s a station without any purpose at all. It simply makes obvious what the regular NBC News makes oblique.

So what is enough? Well, regardless of what political party these journalists might belong to, they wouldn’t have an outlet unless their stations were making money. And they wouldn’t be making money if you weren’t subsidizing them through your cable subscription and your consumer dollars. And until the day comes that they’re not making money, and the reason why has been made clear, things are not going to soon change.

    The most egregious bias of them all is bias by omission. The left practices it all the time. They omit stories that are bad for Liberal causes and Sensationalize causes that are good for liberal causes.

    The result is this steady stream of propaganda out of the lefts pie hole.

    1. MAHB001 says

      You know what really pisses me off is that when I purchase a product that is advertised on one of these Liberal propaganda news shows, a small chunk of my money goes into supporting that liberal crap…

          I have been doing the individual boycotts like you for years… Individually it will not work.. It is too easy for the cabal to ignore you as a single voice.

          But if you , I and everybody that knows the MEDIA is corrupt gets together and screams with one voice…. We will not be ignored.

    The Mainstream media has formed a cabal, that cabal controls public opinion and set the Nations narrative. The cabal no longer report the news, they use bias to generate liberal propaganda. They have lost all pretense of objectivity.

    There is something conservatives can do to level the playing field… We must unite and scream at the top of our lungs together demanding a level playing field. Demand that the news return to objective journalism.

      In
      case you thought there might be some bias in news reporting….

      How’s this for having
      the “inside track”?

      YOU HAD A HUNCH THE
      NEWS SYSTEM WAS RIGGED AND YOU COULDN’T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT SOLVE
      THE PUZZLE.

      ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to
      Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

      CBS President
      David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security
      Adviser for Strategic Communications.

      ABC News
      correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary
      Jay Carney

      ABC News and
      Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy

      CNN President
      Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom

      And now you
      know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.

      Ya think there
      might be a little bias in the news ???

    5. watchman48 says

      There will never ever be a even playing field… We can shout all kinds of demands but those that lack godly morals and integrity are easily bought with either the promise of power or money… USA will not be saved, we cross the point of no return several years ago..

      The Bible assures us that it is God that raises up kings or leaders of nations of which the people deserve. He has proven this over and over but the vast majority doesn’t believe in God or the Bible… Does that make this statement less relevant? Absolutely not.. The truth is the truth whether man wants to believe in God or the Bible, makes no difference.

      This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
      Daniel 4:17 (KJV)

      And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will. Daniel 5:21 (KJV)
      Our hope is not in any man but Yeshua, LORD of lords and KING of kings only. God has never allowed the destruction of a nation nor it’s people before first sending His warnings hoping that the hearts of the people might turn to Him and be saved from that coming destruction… God has been warning United States since at least the mid 1980s that I am aware of… I received the first warning in Apr. 1994… And I began telling everyone I meet that they were coming back to hit the #2 World Trade Tower again and when they do they will take it to the ground.. I now tell how the 9/11/01 attack was the 1st. of three major attacks. The 2nd. will be approx. 1000x greater and somewhere in Southern California and most likely 2 areas on the upper East Coast which looks like in or near Philly and Boston. I believe the death toll and destruction will be horrendous and the final attack will be the end of USA as we know it today… Google; watchman48 RFC Newsletter #101.

      1. MAHB001 says

        The fight for a level playing field is the least I can do for God, and his people. The liberal media is evil and is brainwashing their viewers, without their permission…. The are leading the people away from God and his teachings.

        I will not sit by idle anymore, and will do what I can do. Please join the fight as I feel it is our duty to fight evil and not give in.

        And please pray for me and my family, we live in Southern CA.

          The battle will continue to grow in intensity and accelerating as the days go by…

          Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
          Proverbs 1:16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

          I was most likely the most lukewarm Christian there ever was until God showed me the entrances to Hell 3 times each night for 3 nights in a row in January 1991, and my life has never been the same since then…

          Sadly, most Christians have never truly given of themselves to Christ and reading all of God’s WORD… I know many have the same views of Mr. Trump who stated, “I am a very good Christian.” If I disregarded all his other faults that statement alone eliminated him from my list of possible candidates..
          Daniel 2:21(KJV) And He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
          God will give us the president that US deserves, so I really do not have much hope of anyone beating Clinton because USA will continue her march down the road to her destruction…
          I pray God’s Peace over all your thoughts and may He give you a double portion of wisdom for dealing with those that try to pervert and distort His Holy WORD. And may God’s blessings be upon you and all your loved ones..

          1. MAHB001 says

            I agree with you as to Trumps Christian comment… That was not from the heart, and seemed to be an indication that Trump will do and say anything to get elected…. Sound familiar?

            Thank you for the blessing. It means a lot to me, someone that IS most likely the most lukewarm Christian there ever was.

          2. MAHB001 says

            I would like to make one other point… I do not think the people will elect Clinton.

            I think the system is now rigged and out of the peoples control. 100% of the people could vote for dirt, and Clinton will win this thing… And if that is the case, it is not the people turning their back on God, it is the corruption of the leaders turning their backs on God.

            “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
            —-Joseph Stalin

          3. watchman48 says

            Yes, the system is rigged and has been for several years… But it still seems as though most have turned away from God to me…. Protesters screaming separation of church and state…. Wanting no displays of the nativity scenes, not wanting prayers at ballgames… angry over cashier saying, Merry Christmas, and they even complain about the words Thanks Giving… We are truly surrounded by a sick, dying and godless people…. .

          4. MAHB001 says

            I am far more optimistic, I see the good in people, they do not know who to trust.

            The young ones are being subjected to ideological subversion, and do not have the moral base of which to stand their grounds on…

            The MEDIA reports not what the truth is, but what their ideology dictates….. Evil has taken up key positions within the society, but I see the people of that society resisting… I have hope, I am not surrounded by a sick, dying and godless people… The people I am surrounded by are God fearing, good people who have had their voices silenced.

            God Bless you, but what do you mean by saying, “But it still seems as though most have turned away from God to me…”

          5. watchman48 says

            The Bible tell us, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9 And. “What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:9-12

            It has estimated that only 2% of those who claim to be born again Christians have ever read through the entire Bible even once, let alone in a daily study of the Holy Scriptures… Most who claim to be Christian have no real idea what it means to be humble, God fearing, sacrificial and obedient to God’s WORD. Most of those that I see who even claim to be born again Christians have more loyalty to their sports teams than they have to God. And what really saddens me is that I have many of the so-called born again Christians who says they either believe in pro-choice or they have said, “Will under certain conditions abortion must be allowed.” No one has the right to play God but evidently there are many Christians think it is okay to do so.

            Yes we are surrounded by a sick, dying and godless people and my only hope is not in any man but in God’s promises and Yeshua….

          6. MAHB001 says

            Watchman, you bear a heavy cross. The things of which you speak are hard to face, even for the faithful.

            I can only pray that the estimates created by man are wrong…

          7. watchman48 says

            Well the Evangelical Magazine actual said it was less than 2% of the born again Christian and the claim for over all Christians was less than 0.05% …. Now that is extremely sad when it only takes 15 min. per day to read through the entire Bible in one year.

            From Apr.94 to 2012 I would try to speak to at least 10 people per day… If they said they were Christian I would ask them if they believed God still speaks directly and still gives dreams and visions? It was even a rare thing for someone to agree that He is just as active today as He has ever been…. If you are need proof for this just Google: “watchman48 The Greater Message,” first and then Google: “watchman48 RFC Newsletter #101.”

    6. AKLady says

      Given the thousands of news outlets in America,
      this idea requires a huge stretch of the imagination.
      Given the attitude of most reporters, this idea is an impossiblility.
      Someone would have leaked the story decades ago.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Yet it is not only true, it has been proven to be true.

        The bias of the Left Stream Media is undeniable. The use of Bias by Omission by the left stream media is undeniable.

        1. AKLady says

          Freedom of the press is guaranteed by the First Amendment.
          To claim that all press is under the control of oen side or the other in ludicrous.
          .
          This web site proves your statement is invalid.

          1. MAHB001 says

            To deny the facts is ludicrous as well….

            ABc, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, ESPN have formed a liberal cabal… They have freely given up their USE of freedom of the press to push a liberal ideology.

            If you think that those stations are ALL the press, you are wrong… Therefor, I made no such claim that all the press is under the control of liberals…But, there is no doubt in my mind that the ones listed above collude, and use bias by omission to manipulate the news to manipulate their viewers opinions.

  3. v8 says

    Commiecrats!!! Not Democrats. They went to our colleges and were indoctrinated by filthy Commie professors living the good life under capitalism and freedom at the same time bad mouthing and bringing the very country that allows that freedom down!! Looks like treason to me!!

    1. pineapple says

      Colleges have the third largest lobbying presence in Washington.

  4. Laddyboy says

    One question: of these 7%, are their stories published or squashed by the “controllers”?

    1. kotoc says

      That IS a good question. My guess is that just about all the media are controlled by democrats, and anything that even remotely suggests that there is serious wrongdoing within our democrat-run government is squashed. All, that is, except Fox News. That’s why Obama hates Fox News. What surprised me is the fact that we’re still able to read stories on the internet like this one.

  5. Gunflint Roseberg says

    Democrats today are NOT, the Democrats of yesterday. They have evolved into Socialists, a small step from full blown Communists. Their next big step is removal/modify/elimination of our Second Amendment. Then it’s onward for their final goal, America’s final domination…Of course with the help of bias journalism, lies, deception, half truths. Our Alphabet News Media is as corrupt as Congress..

    1. Rosie46 says

      That 7% is about the same percentage of educators that are not progressives. Look at our schools and colleges and universities — most teaching our children are left-wing purveyors of the indoctrination of our left-wing leaders.

      1. Jimmy King says

        I thought it was because journalists how to go on to obtain advanced degrees and advanced degrees make you smarter and being smarter moved you away from the republican party

  6. fred says

    I suspect even that number to be inflated, 2-3% seems like the real number if that! of course they will never acknowledge that to be the case, and the nepotism issue makes their reach even greater than what is reported here in this article, who they are in relationships with DOES matter!

  7. bandit says

    7% ? That high ! ?

  8. Wayne Thorson says

    Journalists are usually pretty smart people. When you have a do nothing congress for 7 years it’s not hard to take sides. Along with that George W. Bush fiasco it’s a no brainer. Only a damn fool would vote Republican.

    1. ssol4569 says

      Both parties have their own special interests and neither party care about We the People. They like to pick our pockets and then get out of their way! Our nation couldn’t be in this mess without both parties being corrupt. So sorry you can’t see that, Wayne.

      1. Wayne Thorson says

        Like I say after George W. Bush it’s a no brainer. Don’t ever vote for a Republican.

        1. ssol4569 says

          If you only knew the no brainer.

          1. Wayne Thorson says

            You got that right . George is a no brainer. I don’t want to know him. Thank you.

          2. ssol4569 says

            Smh. And this is why our nation is so screwed. People want to blame one person or one party and that is completely impossible. But you go ahead and keep being intellectually dishonest with yourself; glad it works for you.

          3. Wayne Thorson says

            Yep, it is that do nothing Republican Congress that has showed us how the government is screwed up. Your right it doesn’t work for me. In fact they never worked for anybody the last 7 years.

          4. ssol4569 says

            Lol! You’re a riot, Wayne! I couldn’t possibly be that whatever you’re complaining about are Obama’s and Democrats baby, now could it be?! After all, if the Republican Congress is do nothing, who is left to blame?

          5. Wayne Thorson says

            I don’t know but I would bet the Republicans have something to do with it.

          6. ssol4569 says

            What the party’s share in common is progressivism (that’s not so progressive). Both party’s are responsible for the demise of America. Both.

          7. Wayne Thorson says

            Yep, I would bet the Republicans are only 93% responsible for the demise of America and the Democrats are 7% responsible. Makes a lot of sense to me.

          8. ssol4569 says

            Ignorance is bliss, that’s pretty obvious. Like I said, glad it works for you. Too bad for the rest of the nation.

          9. Wayne Thorson says

            YEP.

          10. ssol4569 says

            …because that’s just the way totalitarian socialists are.

          11. Wayne Thorson says

          14. mac12sam12 says

            Reagan worked with the democrats, Clinton worked with the republicans and both presidents had good economies. Don’t blame congress for the failed economy and our foreign policy is the laughingstock of the world. Obama’s doing it all on his own. Obama’s legacy will be as the worst president in US history. You are nothing more than a partisan hack.

          15. Wayne Thorson says

            This do nothing Republican congress has filibustered over 500 of Obama’s bills. Clinton didn’t work with his Republican congress. They worked with him. He got them to do what he wanted them to do. That’s why he was called slick Willey. This Republican do nothing congress doesn’t want that to happen again. After all if Bill could run again nobody would come close to beating him in an election. He is the best thing Hillary has going for her. He will be the best advisor money can buy and it’s not going to cost the tax payer anything.

          16. mac12sam12 says

            His first two years he had both houses full of democrats and that’s when he did the most damage. Filibustering tax hikes is a good thing. He already gave the middle class the biggest tax hike in history, he raised the corporate tax rate to highest in the world in which the consumer ends up paying. 1,200 new business regulations that the consumer ask ends up paying for. The last quarter our GDP was 1.5%, and obama has the worst GDP record of all the other presidents. Yes, Clinton did work with the republicans in both houses. Clinton was known as Newt’s rubber stamp. Gingrich put a welfare bill on Bubba’s desk that put the work rule into welfare that cut the roles in half. Clinton was a centrist, hillary is far left. It will be a republican administration this time around, notice that the democrats aren’t talking about the jobs or economy? They have failed on both. Hillary is also using blood thinners after her stroke, don’t think the old bag is healthy enough.

          17. Wayne Thorson says

            You can keep fooling your self with your bull but you can’t fool the American people. If Bill Clinton could run again there is nobody that would even come close to beating him. You cannot find fault with his politics in any way shape or form.

          18. ssol4569 says

            Funny how a Republican Congress can make a Democrat President look good. Btw, the reason that was possible was because Bill Clinton was the last Blue Dog Democrat.

          19. Wayne Thorson says

            Only in your mind. A smart wife will always make their spouse think any good idea was their idea. Is this your train of thought?

          20. ssol4569 says

            That didn’t answer what I asked. Where are the Blue Dogs?! They’re gone Wayne because the Democrat Party has been infiltrated and succumb by the Democrat Socialist Party and I don’t care if you believe me or not. Facts are facts.

          21. Wayne Thorson says

            I have to ask you. What the hell do you mean by a blue dog?

          22. ssol4569 says

            They are conservative to centrist Democrats and is why the two parties got along as well as they did. Now Blue Dogs have been pushed out of the party and out of power. Progressives are all they accept and the reason is because of what the word implies/makes happen. They just keep moving toward bigger and bigger government, amassing more and more power and leaving We the People with less money (regulations and taxes) and less power over our own lives.

          23. Wayne Thorson says

            Wrong, the Republicans will only vote for a bill when it has more tax exemptions or lowering the taxes on the filthy rich. They keep trying to feed the people that trickle down Reaganomicks will work and it never has.

          24. ssol4569 says

            So I’m going to take a wild guess and say you don’t know who George Soros is.

          25. Wayne Thorson says

            I would guess you haven’t read where all the filthy rich Democrats are willing to forfeit their exemptions and raising of their taxes to make this economy work.

          26. ssol4569 says

            I’m not sure what good that will do except take more money out of the American’s who may just have the ability to create more jobs (that is if they weren’t taxed so heavily). And did you know that a 100 percent tax, on the top one percent of income earners, would be insufficient to fund Medicare for three years. The problem is not that we don’t pay enough in taxes, the problem is that the government is top heavy, robbing us blind, & sucking the life out of her citizens.

            And regarding restructuring the tax code? With 73,954 pages of tax law as of 2013, I think there’s a lot more that can be done to simplify and make life easier for everyone. And yes, start with the loop holes only for the rich. That’s always been BS no matter what party a person votes under.

          27. Wayne Thorson says

            You just showed your ignorance. The rich don’t create jobs. The demand for a product is what creates jobs. Give money to the less fortunate and they will create demand for those products and the rich will open factories to produce them.

          28. ssol4569 says

            …because Keynesian Economics is working so well! Sure, I understand. The only ignorance I see is that you haven’t a clue on economic theories; moreover, how we have gotten to the point of bankruptcy as a nation. You are a Keynesian Socialist and I am a Friedman Capitalist.

          29. Wayne Thorson says

            You obviously weren’t around in the 90’s when Bill was president. The Republicans called him a murderer and fabricated false claims against him to make him look bad just like they have done with Obama since he was elected. They just made it more obvious during Obama’s administration that’s why they have been voted the biggest do nothing congress this country has ever had and has showed the American people that we are tired of professional politicians.

          30. ssol4569 says

            Liberals are constantly making fun of conservatives, calling them racists, dumb asses, whatever name they can think of. I cannot answer for other peoples actions no matter whose they are but I do know that both parties have caused our nation to go right down the old crapper.

          31. Wayne Thorson says

            It’s nice you make a good example of what a good Republican should be.

          32. ssol4569 says

            Well thank you, Wayne, but I’m not sure I consider myself a Republican; I’m really a conservative that leans libertarian as well. This government has gotten so big that we now fear them and it’s suppose to be the other way around. Our liberties are terribly at risk and everyone of these politicians are laughing all the way to the bank (along with all the power they’ve assumed). We’re not in good place at all, especially since divide and conquer is working quite nicely for them and we’ll blame everybody else but them.

          33. Wayne Thorson says

            I’ve heard this so many times. I am a conservative not a Republican. I don’t know the difference. I have never heard anyone say they are a liberal not a Democrat. I don’t know any conservative that has ever voted anything but Republican. I am baffled.

          34. ssol4569 says

            I don’t want to be connected in anyway to people who constantly go against their principles. The Republican Party has also succumb to progressivism only they don’t use the word, but principled conservatives recognize it pretty quick. We don’t just change on a dime, we respect the rule of law, and there needs to be a valid reason for the change (besides bigger government, more debt, cowering to whiners, or being called names). Does that help?

          35. Wayne Thorson says

            NOPE, YOU are a Republican.

          36. ssol4569 says

            Whatever you say, Wayne. You’re the totalitarian, not me.

          37. Wayne Thorson says

            What ever that is and I am proud of it.

          38. ssol4569 says

            You’ll make a very good and proud Socialist, Wayne! I’m glad your happy about that, lol! But just remember these words of wisdom, “Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” -Alexis de Tocqueville

          39. mac12sam12 says

            You can’t refute what I say and you never could. You just label it bull, but prove me wrong. Clinton had two houses of democrats, and he also had the dot com bubble. Yep! Newt’s rubber stamp!

          40. Wayne Thorson says

            Yes and don’t forget Bill’s Vice President invented the internet. What an administration.

          41. mac12sam12 says

            You can never refute my assertions, LOL and a hardy har har!

          42. Wayne Thorson says

            You finally got something right. Your comment does deserve a hardy har har!

          43. mac12sam12 says

            You always come to a debate unarmed. Too easy.

          44. mac12sam12 says

            Filibustered against more tax hikes. Boy, are you dumb. Clinton did work with the republicans. Newt put the work rule for welfare bill on Clinton’s desk and he signed it. Welfare was cut by 50%. History isn’t your strong point. Try some reading, pops!

          45. Wayne Thorson says

            Yea, I don’t get my history lesson from Republican blogs. Most of it comes from Politico blogs. They have more of an independent view which closer to the truth.

          46. Francisco Machado says

            The Republican Congress has indeed done nothing. It has permitted Obama
            disaster after Obama disaster. It has sometimes gone so far as to
            cripple its own ability to stop him then make a symbolic vote against
            him. It has sometimes helped him to implement these disasters. Showed us how the government is screwed up? Heck, it’s obvious how it’s screwed up. And the Republicans didn’t even try to stop it, despite promises to “do everything humanly possible.” The Progressive Republicans paved the way for Donald Trump, who is at least teaching other Republican candidates that there’s value in exposing the Obama calamities and showing them that resistance is not futile, that it’s what the voters want.

          47. Wayne Thorson says

            It’s okay, keep living in your dream world.

          48. Donald Evans says

            With more brains than the present lying, egotistical, pseudo-president, wannabe dictator, arrogant muslim Arab in WH.

          49. Wayne Thorson says

            It takes a no brainer to call people names. That’s all they know.

    100 % of liberals have cranial rectal impaction and 100 % of muslimes are taught it is OK to kill or subjugate non muslimes

  10. Ddenney1 says

    This is a LIE!!! You will NEVER convince me that 7% are conservative!!! That’s at LEAST off by 6% or more!! The conservatives would be way more concerned about the TERRIBLE ratings!!! The conservatives would be concerned about making a profit and NOT just getting a STUPID AGENDA through!!! It is probably more like 1% that are gophers not business professionals!!

  11. Mark Clemens says

    If you don’t have a few million dollars, the republican party is not working for you. That’s why the low percentage of republicans in the media.

  12. talltreetrader says

    Back in the early 90’s Rush Limbaugh made the statement several times on his radio show; that journalists are not taught, in our colleges and universities, how to report the news, they are taught that they must make a difference. Telling the truth has no bearing on the reporting, only the end objective! They are also taught that a lie is not a lie if you can get enough people to believe it. It is a wonder that we have any conservatives in the media at all.

    Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with 1Ti 4:1-2
    And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. Rev 21:27

  13. SouthernPatriot says

    True journalism died many years ago. Sodomites are about 1 – 2% of the population and their rights now, according to the Supreme Court, supersedes our First Amendment rights. If conservatives are only 7% of all professional journalists, then they should sue for special minority protection. Maybe go on a hunger strike?

  14. daveveselenak says

    … and the other 93% are useful, treacherous idiots! We no longer have a free press and that is why we are no longer a free country but most of the sheeple still think that we are because they can still vote in fraudulent, elections!

    1. pineapple says

      In
      case you thought there might be some bias in news reporting….

      How’s this for having
      the “inside track”?

      YOU HAD A HUNCH THE
      NEWS SYSTEM WAS RIGGED AND YOU COULDN’T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT SOLVE
      THE PUZZLE.

      ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to
      Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

      CBS President
      David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security
      Adviser for Strategic Communications.

      ABC News
      correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary
      Jay Carney

      ABC News and
      Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy
      Press Secretary

      ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s
      Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

      CNN President
      Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom
      Nides.

      And now you
      know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama’s pocket.

      Ya think there
      might be a little bias in the news ???

      It also
      explains the cover up of Benghazi………

  15. Goodforall says

    There is no objective journalism left here anymore. Even FOX seems to have turned in the other direction from where they used to be. It’s sickening how these useful idiots serve and protect the liberal left. I trust absolutely nothing that they report on.

    1. Jarhead says

      Journalism today is all Fantasy/Fiction/Make-Believe

  16. Jimmy King says

    HAHAHA As usual you have to consider the source. Author Tim Groseclose receives the bulk of his income from grants and fellowships from conservative foundations. He is writing this nonsense JUST to keep his benefactors happy and faux news sites like this one republish this shit

  20. stratus46 says

    7 percent? I thought it was only 1%. Now I get it. The other 6% are RINOs

  21. Teresa says

    Part of the issue too is that journalism no longer has any integrity. When they started letting any mom and pop be journalists without any formal training the journalistic value decreased. Journalism is to report the facts and/or the issues with no prejudice regarding the subject so that readers can be informed and make up their own minds. Today Journalism is whatever the opinion is of the person who wrote the blog, article, etc. The writers even resort to lies to sway the public to their side thinking thier way is the only way. This thinking is what has brought our media, our schools, and the tide of public opinion to the propaganda Mchine it has become today. Using Business techniques of misinformation to direct public opinion and essentially do a hostile take over of the government and our country.

  22. The Redhawk says

    so does this mean that 93% of so called “JOURNALISTS” are Really Progressive Anarchist types as we see on BS NBC.. C NBC, CNN Politico and other Such DRIVEL members of MSM?

  23. GlobalThinkTank says

    Some of the very problems we face today with journalism is the control of content to be aired or published and the lack of control by the journalist to be a real impartial and unbiased journalist with the full intentions of objectively viewing both sides of a story credibly, and then looking deeper into the issue for additional, possibly over-looked supporting and or contradicting facts on the matter… as we often see in many of today’s headlines and stories; their intention is to form public opinion and demonize, alienate, and criticize all other who don’t conform to their way of thinking.

    But when a reporters ‘client confidentiality’ is unprotected and is subject to subpoena by a Federal Agency to reveal names, telephone numbers and more incrimination information, then Freedom of the Press and Journalism is no longer Free to writing impartially and objectively, and from here it becomes watered down, bias, and lacks credibility. When it becomes controlled by one party… it becomes dangerously controlled Propaganda.

  24. Reality Check says

    The TPP is about to turn us into a 3rd world country and this Right Wing Blog sits quiet.

    1. mac12sam12 says

      Obama signed it, your president is a tool of the rich.

  25. Joyce White says

    The news media has ‘sold out’ honesty and decency in order to make headlines. Any way they can twist a story to make it sensational they will do it.But the public is to blame too, by not demanding that they report the truth. After all, it is much more ‘titillating’ to pass on gossip(malicious lies) instead of truth.

    1. John Topper says

      Right you are Ms. White. It stopped being NEWS a long time ago. Now is INFOTAINMENT! a sad day for US.

  26. headonstraight says

    Easily explained:

    1) A certain threshold amount of intelligence is required of a journalist.

    2) Liberals are, on average, considerably more intelligent than conservatives; thus more liberals meet that threshold level of intelligence..

    3) Therefore it naturally folllows that liberal journalists will outnumber conservative journalists.

    1. Cotton says

      Maybe the journalists that write on this site are secretly liberals trolling the far-right for cash. I bet this site makes some fair income.

      1. headonstraight says

        You are not likely to collect on that bet. This bush league site is too insignificant to coax out that kind of investment from the progressive sector. Those of us liberals who do come on here do so not for any pay, but merely to expose the dependably abundant wingnut stupidity. We are just having fun with you wackadoodles.

        1. Cotton says

          True, this site is a gold mine when it comes to the “emotional over logic” type. But from all the clickbait ads on here the owner of this site is probably making at least some profit. Oh well, this place is probably one of the best wingnut echo-chambers around, at least.

  27. Larry Cowden says

    Take the fight to the liberal journalists! Hound them, call them out, write specific letters calling them out for the liars they are. Make their lives miserable through harrasment, oops, Freedom of Speech!

  28. Alleged Comment says

    Lieberals want to be the LOUDEST mouths because they know they are losers and if people listened carefully there is no way they would ever listen to them or elect Demoncraps so they learn to be journalist to OBFUSCATE facts you otherwise would hear.

    Their philosophy and agenda is based on HATE!! Anything really successful or can make you independent and happy they will SHOUT DOWN through the only thing they know how – MSM.

    That is why there is so many shill voices of them in it. Don’t shout them down and look like a fool. Instead go to alternate sources now that the internet is here.

  29. Jacky says

    There is no way to resolve this.
    We can no longer coexist with the liberal dem bloodsuckers.
    Time to physically separate ourselves from the ersatz life forms, it is the only way to prevent civil war.

  30. SouthernPatriot says

    If there is any truth in 7% being Republicans, that does not mean 7% are conservatives. Perhaps 1% are conservatives and the other 6% are statists, or “Log Cabin Republicans.” Journalism is dead and has been dead for some time now. Investigative reporting that does not pursue a Obama/Socialist-Democrat agenda is rare, and becoming rarer.

    Colleges and universities are enclaves of socialist-leftist professors who fill young minds full of mush with anti-free market and leftist ideals. Parents send their children to universities to get an education to have a better opportunity than we had, and their children are not taught, but rather indoctrinated with communist and socialist ideology.

    1. John Topper says

      Colleges and universities are enclaves of socialist-leftist professors ….that’s an old saw that has the validity of Swiss cheese.

      but rather indoctrinated with communist and socialist ideology….Yea, like Mom & Dad are full of crap. Drinking & sex are FUN!

      Journalism is dead…RIP!…turn off the TV and READ! and not only 1 paper but a FEW…preferably one NOT from the US.

  31. Laurence Almand says

    The Socialist Media – largely dominated by Jews, incidentally – has long been the enemy of American ideals and principles. The Leftist, anti-American propaganda constantly bombards the public with falsehoods and downright lies. Note the anti-gun propaganda of such shows as CRIMINAL MINDS and LAW AND ORDER, which depict law-abiding gun owners as redneck fanatics.

    These shows also feature white males as the murderers, ignoring the fact that the majority of murderers are Black males. When is the last time you saw a Black male villian on TV? Or a female murderer?
    It is appalling to think that our children are being brainwashed by such propaganda.

  32. Robert Early says

    I would wager that 7% of journalists are honest and ethical. Therefore, It’s correct to assume that these few are Republicans.
