As it turns out, the The Rittenhouse Review has also covered media bias, although it takes a somewhat more strident tone on the foolishness of the claim than I did. TRR links to an essay by Rep. Bernie Sanders on the subject, and it's pretty damning. It does revive a few leftist canards I'm not quite comfortable with (the loss of manufacturing jobs in this country has more to do with gains in manufacturing efficiency than anything else), but the fact that these sorts of issues are rarely discussed is informative in-and-of itself. After all, the cries of "liberal bias" prove that ludicrous notions that are thoroughly debunked will still revive if the powers-that-be are interested in it, so why should thoroughly debunked notions of liberals remain either ignored or misrepresented?
