Media Bias Quantified?

Via Chris Lawrence comes this working paper by a couple of researchers who are trying to quantify media political bias. I'm not knowledgeable enough to critique their methodology; it has good points but seems limited, too. Their results, howerever, are stark.

By their measure, FOX News' Special Report is the most conservative news source by a decided margin. NBC & CBS' evening news, USA Today and the New York Times tilt strongly to the left.

It's well worth your time to read the paper.
