    Steven, actually, I agree with you about the WSJ. Pretty good, neutral reporting. I put them in the biased bucket due to its editorial page, but that of course is where a newspaper is supposed to be opinionated.

    Really the only people who should be fired for having a political opinion or publicly displaying it should be kneeling NFL players, amiright?

    Funny thing is, I don't.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    No you have to keep them out of the newspaper, unless it is in the editorial section.

    Compared to other Rupert Murdoch publications maybe. But they have a bias towards trickle down.

    Right. Because you saw so many negative articles about fiscal spending. Editorials, yes. News articles no.

    My sense is that the reason conservatives/Rs claim the NYT and WaPo are biased is that they report developments that the conservatives/Rs would like swept under the rug,not that that reporting is inaccurate.
