NYT Has a Liberal Bias?


The recent public editor for the New York Times, Arthur Brisbane, observed in his final column that:
* NYT staffers "share a kind of political and cultural progressivism" that "virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times."
* Times reporters approached liberal issues "more like causes than news subjects."

Executive editor Jill Abramson took exception to Brisbane's remarks. Said she:
* "The Times sometimes reflects its urban and cosmopolitan base."
* "The way we view an issue in New York is not necessarily the way it is viewed in the rest of the country or world."


In any event, one is reminded of
Bernie Goldberg's 2003 magnum opus.
