A Dry Bones Cartoon ~ It’s the “1619 Project”.

Free Beacon Study: New York Times Warns Often Of ‘Far Right,’ But Not A ‘Far Left’

August 20, 2019 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ One of the ways that “objective” reporters betray a liberal bias is in the use of ideological labels. Journalists warn people about “conservative” groups, while the liberal groups they favor aren’t described as liberal, but with ameliorative PR terms like “civil rights groups,” “environmental advocates,” and “women’s groups.” My little media-bias […]
