Breaking: the sky is blue, and grass is green

.. and media bias is real.

A UCLA study has confirmed what anyone with a clue has known since they first learned to read or work a TV remote: the American mainstream media has a leftward bias.

Twenty media outlets studied; 18 lean left. Only Brit Hume's show on Fox News and the Washington Times lean right.

Anyway: check it out. This appears to be a serious study, not just some blowhards giving their opinions.

UPDATE: This appears to be the work product of the study.

And still more from the 'Sky is blue, grass is green' dept.

A Mea Culpa
from the Chicago Tribune Editorial Page:

"After reassessing the administration's nine arguments for war, we do not see the conspiracy to mislead that many critics allege. Example: The accusation that Bush lied about Saddam Hussein's weapons programs overlooks years of global intelligence warnings that, by February 2003, had convinced even French President Jacques Chirac of "the probable possession of weapons of mass destruction by an uncontrollable country, Iraq." We also know that, as early as 1997, U.S. intel agencies began repeatedly warning the Clinton White House that Iraq, with fissile material from a foreign source, could have a crude nuclear bomb within a year."

To the Bush Lied crowd - weed it and reap!
