Media Bias and Diagnosing the Crazy Liberal

Ted Rall has been getting himself some notice in the blogosphere lately. Surprisingly enough it is for things he has written, not the poor quality of his artistic skills. Actually I probably shouldn't be surprised since I know I can't willingly bring myself to read his comic.

Anyway one of his favorite topics is ranting on the vast Right Wing Conspiracy. Again, surprisingly, he extends the vast right wing conspiracy to include CBS, ABC, and NBC. Now if he stuck to Fox News I wouldn't have a complaint. Several studies of partisanship have basically said the same thing, Fox News is ideologically similar to a lot of very moderate Republicans. The major networks on the other hand fall somewhere around the Democratic party line. If you put it on a 0 to 100 scale, Fox is in the forties and the rest are in the sixties. Which means yes, Fox is less biased and more "fair and balanced" than the major media outlets.

What does this tell us about Ted Rall? It tells us that he is so far left that party line Democrats look conservative to him. Wow. You hear similar big media comments from a lot of professional protestors for the same reasons.

So as a public service I present IMAO's Top 10 Indicators You May Be Left of Liberal.
