Media Bias

The MSM has had a history of liberal bias; Democrats and other members of the left have denied it (though much of this is the fact that many of them have never heard a true unbiased newssource), and conservatives have had to deal with it. Among them, The Red Stater has called for an end to these biases. There may be a better idea.

Evan Coyne Maloney proposes another idea; media outlets admit their biases beforehand. While this won't eliminate those biases, the media can be honest that it is trying to indoctrinate those watching or reading the source. Of course, the alternative is that the people discover these biases for themselves.

UPDATE 6:15 AM 7/29/05: Looks like one reporter is taken that call a bit too seriously.
