Texas Media Bias.

Back in late March, Rasmussen Reports released a study showing that shady liberal trial lawyer Bill White received far more positive media coverage than Governor Rick Perry.

If anything, it's gotten even more slanted since then.

This visual of recent media bias in the Texas gubernatorial campaign really just speaks for itself:

Considering all of the positive news out there about Texas and all of the scandals that should be plaguing Bill White, this disparity is truly outrageous.

How are these graphs not shameful and embarrassing to anyone involved in reporting news on this race?

Jonah Goldberg argues that the collective media establishment is so liberal and out-of-touch, they treat conservatives as strange, foreign creatures:

In America, self-identified conservatives outnumber self-identified liberals by 2 to 1. And yet many of our leading journalistic bastions have found themselves stuck in something akin to media monasteries with a Fort Apache complex.

There are many reasons 24 of the top 25 American newspapers are experiencing stunningly rapid declines in circulation.

The Dallas Morning News: down 21.47% in the year leading up to March 2010.
The Houston Chronicle: down 13.77%.

The one newspaper of the top 25 without a decline? The Wall Street Journal.

Think at least one of the reasons for decline might have something to do with the blatant left-leaning ideological and partisan biases of these newspapers?

NPR is one of the worst. They basically air White's talking points in their reports.
