Paul Rosenberg has written a diary that he cross-posted to MyDD from My Left Wing, ‘Liberal Media’ Myth Goes ‘Scientific’. In a nutshell, Rosenberg deconstructs a study released by UCLA that could just as easily been written by a right wing think tank.
The “surprising” conclusion of this “scientific” study is that Fox News is a “centrist” news outlet and Matt Drudge “leans left.” Needless to say, the methodology of the study left a lot to be desired. As Rosenberg points out:
[The authors] reflect a common attitude of beginning with an ideological outlook, and then looking for data to support it.
