Shocking: Study Says MSM Overwhelmingly Liberal Lefties: “

Shocking: Study Says MSM Overwhelmingly Liberal Lefties: ’


A survey conducted late last year and released Monday, by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, confirmed the obvious — that compared to the views of the public, conservatives are under-represented in national journalism while liberals are over-represented. Jennifer Harper of the Washington Times discovered the nugget buried deep in the annual ‘State of the Media’ report from Pew’s Project for Excellence in Journalism and FNC’s Brit Hume on Tuesday night highlighted the findings from the survey of 222 journalists and news executives at national outlets:

Only six percent said they considered themselves conservatives and only two percent said they were very conservative. This compares with 36 percent of the overall population that describes itself as conservative. Most journalists, 53 percent, said they’re moderate. 24 percent said they were liberal and eight percent very liberal.

Only 19 percent of the public consider themselves liberal. And it’s not much of a leap to presume many of the 53 percent who describe themselves as ‘moderate’ are really quite liberal.

For national broadcast journalists (97 polled), zero percent call themselves ‘very conservative’ while 6 percent said they are ‘very liberal.’

Overall, only 8 percent of those at national outlets attend church or synagogue weekly.
