Media Bias? What Media Bias?

Yet another report from the trenches, this time from San Francisco.
In many instances, according to the poll, the general public is more conservative than conservative journalists are. For example, one of the questions asked in the survey was whether a "belief in God was necessary to be moral." Among Americans in general, 58 percent agreed, whereas only 26 percent of conservative journalists concurred -- but more startling is that a mere 3 percent of liberal journalists accepted the statement.

Gaps were even greater in the hot social issues of our day: Among the general public, 42 percent believe homosexuality should be discouraged, but just 8 percent of the moderate journalists and only 2 percents of the liberal journalists thought so.
