Stop The Press(es)!!

Amazing Pew poll results:

At national organizations (which includes print, TV and radio), the numbers break down like this: 34% liberal, 7% conservative. At local outlets: 23% liberal, 12% conservative. At Web sites: 27% call themselves liberals, 13% conservatives.


The survey also revealed what some are sure to label a "values" gap. According to Pew, about 60% of the general public believes it is necessary to believe in God to be a truly moral person. The new survey finds that less than 15% of those who work at news outlets believe that. About half the general public believes homosexuality should be accepted by society -- but about 80% of journalists feel that way.

Amazing. Who-a-thunk? The funniest paragraph of this story was the last one:

In an essay accompanying the survey, the directors of the sponsoring groups -- Bill Kovach, Tom Rosenstiel and Amy Mitchell --declare that broad conclusions about the political findings should be tempered by analyzing some of the details in the findings. For example, they identify strong "libertarian" leanings among journalists, including doubts about the role of "big government."

I find this very hard to believe given that liberals dominate. Now maybe there really is the silent majority of libertarians hiding out in the Media...actually, I pray that they are. I just don't believe it. But then I'm part of the VRWC (Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy)...so I wouldn't be expected to =).


Wizbang also has some comment on this poll.

Update 2:

Cold Fury also has some good insight into the meaning of this poll.
