Judge calls newspapers, TV biased

Is the mainstream media biased?

Do they censor news and slant stories?

At least one judge has come to that conclusion.

DC Circuit Court Judge Laurence Silberman said in a recent opinion that the New York Times and Washington Post are "biased and taking us to a one-party system."

The judge wrote, "Although the bias against the Republican Party – not just controversial individuals – is rather shocking today, this is not new.

"It is a long-term, secular trend going back at least to the ’70s." 

"2 of the 3 most influential papers (at least historically), The New York Times and The Washington Post, are virtually Democratic Party broadsheets.

"The news section of The Wall Street Journal leans in the same direction.

"The orientation of these 3 papers is followed by The Associated Press and most large papers across the country (such as the Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, and Boston Globe).

"Nearly all television – network and cable – is a Democratic Party trumpet.

"Even the government-supported National Public Radio follows along."
