A term that implies that news reporting has a bias towards "left" or politically liberal ideas, but in reality is an illusion created when highly opinionated people inevitably use selective hearing to filter out and pick up on topics they don't like, forgetting the rest.
You can find some on-line conservative newspapers that claim to be "the real news, not the liberal media kind!" as well as some on-line liberal papers that claim to be "the real news, not the conservative-bias kind!"

something that exists, despite strong opinion that it does not.

harvard studies have shown that it exists. google "harvard study liberal media" (no need for quotes)

and UCLA studies have determined that it exists. google "UCLA study liberal media" (also no need for quotes)

of course people are used to seeing this bias and have become desensitized to it. if you smell your upper lip for an extended period, you cease to detect a smell. does that mean it doesn't smell like anything? of course not. so don't get all uppity with a term just because you don't want to think it's true. seriously, if any more ass kissing happened on this word then everyone's lips would smell like ass.
fox news is known for media bias, but only because their bias attempts to offset every other media outlet. either way, i don't watch fox. but i sure as hell wouldn't watch any other news channel, because of the liberal media. i'll just wait to see if people are headed toward my house with pitchforks and torches.

Whiny, bitching, cry-baby conservatives love to prattle on and on about the "liberal media." To be fair, except for FOX News (Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, John Gibson, Neil Cavuto, Steve Doocy, E.D. Hill, Brian Kilmeade, Brit Hume), Clear Channel, Laura Ingraham, Dr. Laura, Rush Limbaugh, Hugh Hewitt, Ann Coulter, Newsmax, G. Gordon Liddy, Michael Reagan, Michael Savage, The New York Post, Sinclair Broadcast Group (WLOS13, Fox 45, WTTO21, WB49, KGAN, WICD, WICS, WCHS, WVAH, WTAT, WSTR, WSYX, WTTE, WKEF, WRGT, KDSM, WSMH, WXLV, WURN, KVWB, KFBT, WDKY, WMSN, WVTV, WEAR, WZTV, KOTH, WYZZ, WPGH, WGME, WLFL, WRLH, WUHF, KABB, WGGB, WSYT, WTTA), David Horowitz, Rupert Murdoch, PAX, and MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, they're right.
Maddox knows that conservatives love playing the "liberal media" card to bolster groundless arguments.

The Daily Show and The Onion. Thats about it.
When CBS has an "intellegence failure" and does an anti-Bush story, 4 people loose their jobs and Dan Rather's career is tainted.

When George W. Bush has an "intellegence failure," we pre-emptively bomb a country, 1,500 Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqis die. He says "Oops," gets re-elected.

1. A lie created by conservative pundits used to describe four of the five major news networks and several newspapers. Consists primarily of a slight majority of left-leaning moderate reporters who are so terrified of being called biased, they deliberately slant their coverage far to the right. Known for ignoring important stories that could have a dramatic impact on American politics, including 2000 election fraud, prewar intelligence that refuted all of Bush's claims about Iraq, and 2004 election fraud.
2. (conservative slang) Any news source that is not blatant about its conservative slant; any news source without the motto 'fair and balanced.'
Damn that liberal media... they keep ignoring all the good things that have happened in Iraq, like those 50 people we saved from the rape rooms by killing 100,000 civilians.
