    So?

    If you can do better Howey, by all means create such a chart and post it for us.
    For gawdsake, Natural News is a right-wing conservative site. That air-head has it on the Left. Now you can pretend not to notice all you want, but a mistake of that size negates whatever potential credibility the chart may have had.

    Are you honestly going to stand by its accuracy in the face of that glaring error?

    Dollars to donuts you didn't even bother to read the methodology links. You just assume because something doesn't fit into your preconceived niches.

    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.
    Just the fact that MSNBC fell into the "Fair interpretations of the news" category should throw up a red flag for anyone with even an ounce objectivity. MSNBC has been shown over and over again to be horrifically biased.

    It's not a "preconceived niche." Natural News is pretty far right. It's anti-vaccine, anti-science, pro-conspiracy. Of course I didn't read the methodology links -- why would I? The woman is a flipping moron.

    Re: The Media Bias Chart

    I do agree about Natural News tough. A combo rightist-CT site. Don't know how that got placed where it is.

    But one misplaced item doesn't nullify every placement (the association fallacy). I think overall, it's pretty fair and mostly spot-on.

    While I happen to agree with most of the pleadings, without a demonstrable methodology it is just opinion.

    Then so are a bunch of the posters on this thread who basically agree with the chart. Right and left posters.

    Don't agree with Howie ... you're a moron. Yup. Folks have you pegged correctly.

    Which raises the questions of what you think "center-right" is, and what you think NR does to not be part of it.

    Who knows, maybe you have a credible case. But most who pick on NR tend not to have any idea what they actually say, and think they're far more to the right than they are.

    Re: The Media Bias Chart

    There is little doubt the National Review is conservative (founded by William F. Buckley).

    The chart has it situated as Right/Conservative/Skews Conservative (but still reputable)/Hyper-Partisan (expressly promotes views)

    I agree. The last two descriptors depend on author and content which is probably why the NR placement straddles Skews Conservative (but still reputable) / Hyper-Partisan (expressly promotes views).
