Say It Isn’t So!

I know this is going to come as a shock to most of you, so you may want to sit down.

There is a bias in the way media reports the news.
There, I’ve said it.  I’m sorry you had to hear it from me.  But best to hear it here rather than not at all.
Different media outlets have a tendency to report based on an agenda governed by their core values.  While certain, not-to-be-named conservative outlets are routinely chastised for this, the simple fact is that it happens on the liberal side of the fence, too.  
I like listening to NPR and I appreciate their news reporting.  But if you listen to it discerningly for any length of time, you ought to come to the realization that they are not objective, and that this lack of objectivity is primarily expressed in how much air time is allocated to one side of an issue or the other (as well as the actual language used to report on issues).  
Just a reminder that we need to be wise and discerning about things.
