Liberal Bias of Journalism "Dear Ann: I have a problem. I have two brothers. 1 brother is in television, the other has been put to death in the electric chair for murder. My mom died from insanity once I was three years old. My sisters are prostitutes, and my dad sells narcotics to high school pupils. Recently I met with a woman who was only released from a reformatory where she served time for smothering her unborn kid to death, and I want to marry her. My problem is--if I marry this girl, if I tell her about my brother who is in tv?" (Goldberg 117) Bernard Goldberg's book, Bias, reveals the truth of journalism, instead of its own art. He pinpoints the inevitability and rationale supporting the vast majority of the media, the country's informant, slanting the news in a liberal direction. Clear examples and statistics emphasize the condition; refused from the media moguls, already recognized from the country. The problem with the press, as Goldberg points out, is the contested nonessential liberal vernacular used without fail by the top news anchors. For example, "right-wing" and "conservative" are commonplace vocabulary for presenting a politician, activist or public figure not liberally aligned. If balanced by labels such as "left-wing" or "liberal", this would not be an issue. But, even the far-left figures are seen and portrayed as "middle of the road". CBS News anchor Dan Rather labeled the New York Times editorial page the same way, regardless of the constant partiality to letters in favor of diplomatic, strict gun control and affirmative action; most clearly liberal standpoints. In reporting domestic problems, objectivity ought to be priority number one for your own media. Instead, the tales.
