It may well be that some media company owners influence the content of the media that they own, but the most widespread media bias is that of the journalists who work in the media. Most journalists think that they are intelligent and that they are entitled (or even have a duty) to use their control over information to push certain causes -- especially Feminism.

  1. Summarising his thesis Manufacturing Concern, Jim Boyce states, "I examined coverage of gender and violence in 1242 headlines published in seven major Canadian dailies from 1989 to 1992.... Considering that statistics on violence typically show that men are at least as victimized as women, the contrast in the amount of coverage given to each was striking: Of the 540 headlines which directly referred to the gender of victims, 525 (97.2%) focused on women and 15 (2.8%) focused on men, a ratio of 35 to 1."

  2. An objective study by Tim Groseclose of the right-wing and left-wing sources quoted by United States media outlets, published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, found that "Of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 scored left of center, with CBS' "Evening News," The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times ranking second, third and fourth most liberal behind the news pages of The Wall Street Journal."

  3. Former television insider Ian Wishart reveals in his book Eve's Bite that ""There were times when one would cover a stage-managed protest on some worthy liberal issue, with barely anyone there, but the point of the story was to give favourable publicity to the worthy liberal issue" (p. 32)...."TV news is heavily manipulated -- not overtly but by the social views of the journalists themselves -- and presents liberal views as orthodox, and conservatve views as quaint or outdated" (p. 33).

  4. This all supports the views about the Media University Complex (MUC) which I put forward in Chapter 13 of my book Sex, Lies & Feminism.
