"The media everywhere is mostly liberal. ... 85% of journalists are registered Democrats."
When Leftmedia journalists call out the Leftmedia for bias and outright propaganda, we take note. Such was the case when CBS News Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan sat with retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland for his “Mike Drop” podcast and gave an interview that “is professional suicide for me.”
Logan lamented the ideological echo chamber that makes up most of the media:
This is the problem that I have: There’s one Fox. There’s one Fox and there’s many, many, many more organizations on the Left. … The problem is the weight of all these organizations on one side of the political spectrum. When you turn on your computer, or you walk past the TV, or you see a newspaper headline in the grocery store, if they’re all saying the same thing, the weight of that convinces you that it’s true. You don’t question it, because everyone is saying it. And unless you seek out Breitbart on your computer, you’re probably not even going to know what the other side is saying. Right?
Moreover, Logan said, journalists are too often actually Democrat Party members:
The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just in the U.S. But in this country, 85% of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact. No one is registering Democrat when they’re really a Republican. So, the facts are on the side of what you just stated: Most journalists are Left, or liberal, or Democrat, or whatever word you wanna give it.
