Liberal bias in the newsroom? Say it ain't SO!

The Sun has been coming out with some pretty good stuff lately. Here's
a study which confirms what my lyin' eyes have been telling me for years
about the TV news.

Surprise, the TV news is run by liberals! Wow, didn't see that coming
eh? The guy who decides what ois going to be on the news and how it
will be portrayed is pretty socialist (PC Party), really socialist
(Liberals) or "workers unite and sieze the means of production!"
socilaist (NDP). One in ten is mildly willing to look at something
other than socialism, if that's ok with everybody. That's the Alliance
Party, now known as the Conservative Party of Canada. The CBC appears
to be a branch of Pravda, but hasn't got the word about the Berlin Wall yet.

And we wonder why all there is on the news is pictures of Harper eating

The Biased Phantom
