Why? Institutions of higher learning breed liberalism? Why journalism majors?
power of the written word
But why is the power of this draw so seemingly one-sided. I get why soldiers are primarily conservative. Pubs advocate more defense spending and that ultimately is in their best interests. Why are journalism majors predominantly liberal?
That was Aleister Crowley in nature.
young skulls full of mush are easily swayed
So young conservatives are simply not drawn to the power of the written word? I find that hard to believe.
Are all college professors liberal leaning or just those that teach journalism?
I just don't get why liberals have such a stranglehold on the media.
Lots of silly questions here.
Sure there are, however, most people know younger people are more impressionable than older people. Who tends to be liberally minded? Often young people.
Of course not all college professors are liberal leaning, but something like 57% of them are.
So in short, liberal college professors are the primary reason that the media has a liberal bias?
IMO, journalists were mostly skeptics and were investigative. Then came Watergate and journalists became celebrities, along with the idea that the mainstream government wasn't always playing by the rules. Between those two I think they think that there is always another big story just waiting to be uncovered.
And I don't think they are necessarily wrong. But where they have really lost it is that they began to believe that one side "means well" and the other side is self serving. Hang the bums, that is what I want and I don't care whether their motivation is for their own self interest (fame) or enlightening the public because it is as necessary in a free country as is the military.
Unfortunately, I think they are going to be butt hurt for the remainder of Obama's term, although not much more than other lame duck presidents, but will hear the siren song of the next Democratic candidate and still believe that only one side is self serving. And we don't have enough discerning/contemplative people out here to call them out. Not a very good view of our future.
Conservatism is a religion hoping to find supporting facts.
It's not very appealing to those who expect the facts to line up with their philosophy all the time.

There are bouts of displeasure with the OA from time to time. Think of a petulant spouse/parent in "after all I've done for you " mode. The complaining party may be angry for the moment but the underlying allegiance remains solid.
they don't know. they just know it's easy to claim victimhood.
I don't know, I would think subjective journalists are the primary reason.
It's on a computer, braille is not necessary.
This is pure comedy gold... Talk about projecting.
Lack of real-life experiences, IMO.
57%??? More like 95 to 98% is more accurate, IMO. Maybe 57% admit to their liberal bias, but the other 38% likely consider themselves "independents" but their obvious bias proves them to be liberal. They just don't like the title "liberal."
My opinion, that is not supported by facts:
College profs tend to be liberal, as do all govt employees like teachers, administrators, etc. Their income comes from some govt or govt agency etc. They tend not to start businesses, not be entrepreneurs, tend not to have undergone the rigors and risks of the free market.
They view those "outside" as greedy or evil or morally corrupt.
Profs are protected by tenure and other freedoms and benefits not "given" in the wide open free market. Many fear the free market of ideas.
I have known (post college) college profs, some were really good people, but they had a hard time grasping the free market in business enterprise. And these were business profs.
Journalism, I dont think, require an understanding of economics, business, free enterprise, history, Constitution, etc. Thus, ignorance abounds.
Take Wolf Blitzer for example, who appeared on Jeopardy tv show, and exhibited ignorance to the highest power. Now maybe it was the subjects selected or use of the button he had to push, but he came across as brain dead.
I think the MSM is more like Ron Burgundy character than we realize. Bubble heads.
All kind of silly stuff there. But weren't you one of the ones who claimed Harry Reid was behind the Bundy case because his family was going to make money selling the land to the Chinese?
Maybe you shouldn't be accusing others of being uninformed.
Well, "silly stuff".....silly to you....but as I said, it is "my opinion"...you have an opinion that it is silly. But then opinions are like noses, we all have them. You are entitled to think that my belief that college profs are detached from the free market place is silly, but that's ok.
Are you a teacher? A prof? A member of a union? Some connection to income via govt?
As to Bundy, well I only reported what journalists were reporting. They were wrong, So therefore, I was wrong. Happy now?
Btw- Dan Rather is trying to reach you to confirm some docs he has on a political figure.
