NPR, be fair about media bias!
2002-03-29, 12:31 a.m.

National Public Radio’s Morning Edition recently devoted two segments (3/20/02, 3/21/02) to allegations of media bias. Morning Edition host Bob Edwards explained that "one of the most common complaints about major news media, including NPR, is that they're not objective-- that they either lean too far to the right or too far to the left." Though the program cited a poll suggesting that both complaints are believed by substantial numbers of Americans (36 percent see a rightward slant, vs. 46 percent who see a tilt to the left), only one of those points of view got a full hearing on NPR.
