    Re: The Media Bias Chart

    i totally agree with bottom left and bottom right sections

    both are partisan drivel

    when i read the news, i like the national review myself or the wall street journal (both conservative but not over the top)

    on occasion i am led to stories from WASHPO or NYT and it really depends on subject matter and the day of the week

    they can be middle of the road, or they can be left leaning....

    overall i think the chart is close....maybe slightly off, but nothing significant

    Re: The Media Bias Chart

    The chart and where the authors place various sources appears to be subjective to their interpretation.

    It does highlight something though. Count the number of sources that are on the left side (32), and then count the number of sources that are on the right side (23).

    The left side as quite a few more than does the right side. My conclusion is that overall, the industry is stilted left.

    I also have a real problem with their definition "Red rectangle nonsense damaging to public discourse" and whom they place in there on the right side.

    Someone observed earlier that the entire thing should be shifted left 1 square or section. I think that's probably an accurate and needed adjustment.

    Anyway, just my impression. YMMV.

    I don't know how you come to that conclusion.

    If anything, I'd say that most of the right-wing news outlets are much further to the right than the chart indicates. E.g. National Review doesn't exactly strike me as center-right.

    I'd also say that more conservatives read more conspiracy-theory news than the right. E.g. on Alexa's rankings, Breitbart is #52 in the US, and Palmer Report is #3166. Patribotics (which I've never heard of) gets so little traffic, Alexa doesn't even chart it.

    Came across a page with chart-modeling of media bias by patent attorney Vanessa Otero (@vlotero). At the link above, she explains her chart methodology.





    Related: The Viral Media Graphic (with special thanks to Vanessa Otero)
    I took one glance, noticed that Vanessa Otero put "Natural News" on the far Left and realized the entire chart was nothing more than a silly famale's air-headed wet dream.

    Honestly, did you even bother to look at that chart before you posted it?

    Yeppers!! Just another example of the sad state of affairs among too many liberals these days. Even the most cursory examination of this chart fo lies would show the gross bias it contains.

    I made this chart myself a year ago:

    The problem, sir, is that as soon as you see one of those names, you assume it must all be false. Guy, if Breitbart says something, I don't automatically assume it's false. I look to see if it's true, then I go from there.

    In other words, please learn to judge WHAT is said on its own merits instead of assuming that it's true or false because of who said it.

    Certainly. If you had bothered to read comments, from both right and left posters, many agree that the placements are close.

    If you can do better Howey, by all means create such a chart and post it for us.
