    Why did they put Limbaugh on the same cover with Stern? So as to draw a false equivalency.
    It's a magazine. There are tons of biased magazines. We don't hold them to the standard we should hold regular broadcast news to. You're right, Stern is much less extreme than Limbaugh.

    You mean your not going to waste your time trying to produce something that does not exist. I don't know why some people want to pretend that it's not true when even the media themselves have become open about it. But I digress, the O.P. is specifically about Time and News Week. Let's keep our focus there and just leave it at them both being leftist rags that promote the left and disparages the right.

    If today's "conservatives" (they aren't) weren't such assholes (Trump/Ryan/McConnell/ etc) they would get more favorable coverage.

    Yeah, right.

    The analysts found 1,123 out of 1,228 statements made about the president on the “Big Three” news networks during September, October and November were critical of Mr. Trump. Only 105 of the statements were considered positive in tone or content.“As the Media Research Center has been documenting all year, the media have approached the Trump presidency with unrelenting hostility,” wrote Rich Noyes, director of research for the organization, which has found evidence of liberal bias against the White House in previous research this year.

    “Even as the media whine about about Trump, their hostile coverage shows no let up. Our study of news in June, July and August found an identical rate of 91 percent negative coverage — which means TV news is unchanged in its hostility toward the president,” Mr. Noyes said.

    again, all this, just proves that conservatives are the true snowflakes...

    want a tissue or a strong actually confident shoulder to cry on after you realize how weak and fake your "broad shouldered" leader actually is....

    If Trump didn't have tantrums he wouldn't be portrayed as a 4 year old.

    Fox is the only one that leans right. Everyone else leans toward the Democrats and this video illustrated especially Time Magazine's propensity to do that.
    I'm saying the article you quoted is intellectually lazy because while the media has biases, these biases are not uniform. Different outlets have different biases, and those biases aren't often even ideological. Most of the time it's partisan (so support the Republican/Democrat independent of what's occurring) or else pro-establishment and powerful people. Sometimes it's in favor of specific powerful people and their interests.

    But yes, to say something as patently absurd as "the media has a left-wing bias" is intellectually lazy and, for that matter, wrong.
    "The question is whether privileged elites should dominate mass-communication and should use this power, as they tell us they must [to] manipulate and deceive the 'stupid majority', and remove them from the public arena. The question, in brief, is whether Democracy and Freedom are values to be preserved or threats to be avoided." --Chomsky
