Brent Bozell writes: In an interview with Jane Hall in the most recent Columbia Journalism Review, [Tom[ Brokaw suggests there is no such thing as liberal media bias … and then asserts that liberal bias is an “obligation” of journalism. Journalists should “represent the views of those who are underrepresented in the social context, or the political context, and to make sure that they’re not overlooked, and that their wrongs get the bright light of journalistic sunshine.”
So there’s no left-liberal media bias, there’s a left-liberal media obligation. Well, that clears that up. It also makes it clear that the reason Tom Brokaw believes our grandparent’s generation was the greatest generation is not because they defeated Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, but because they turned America into a left-liberal quasi-socialist welfare state.
