Re: Politico, WaPo, and NY Times - Bias?
I think we need to separate the op-ed sections from the news sections.
FOX News has a pretty conservative op-ed section, their news is fairly neutral (see what I did there?).
The problem is that rags like WaPo and NYT push their opinions AS news. They do this by burying stories harmful to liberals and putting news that furthers their cause or hurts conservatives on the front page day after day after day...
