I find it ironic that you are preaching to me about confirmation bias when you will readily point out bias in a conservative affiliated group while completely denying it in admittedly liberal leaning news outlets.
I wasn't citing the piece because of its conservative affiliation. I was citing it because it contained numerous quotes from journalists (most of them admittedly liberal) that affirm, through personal experience, that modern main stream journalism has predominantly left leaning tendencies.
I am not a conservative. I am also not a liberal. I consider myself more of a centrist. That is why I believe in taking everything the media says with a grain of salt. No one is completely objective and unbiased. That's why peer review and fact checking are so vital when it comes to buying anything the MSM sells to us.
Here's an article, citing a study from Harvard University Institute of Politics, which is a both a liberal and academically renowned institution. It states the obvious. Something that you are too unwilling to accept.http://www.iop.harvard.edu/media-bias-alive-and-well
