How Media Bias Works
How media bias works:
Here is Barbara West (WFTV) interviewing senator John McCain. Apologies for the pop up comments. This was the only copy I could find on YouTube.
Here is Barbara West (WFTV) interviewing senator Joe Biden
Here’s a split screen comparison of the two interviews. Again, apologies for the editorializing by the person who posted it on YouTube. I think the videos speak for themselves how some people in the media (I'm sure there are other examples, not just from a conservative) decide to interview politicians. At the very least, this does speak to this whole "mainstream media" argument. Who is this mainstream media? People on FOX News often will speak of this "mainstream media" as something "other" and biased against conservatives, while at the same time advertising themselves as the most watched news source in America. I really don't get it.
