Clueless Liberal: Man, I can’t believe people are beating up on CNBC. The corporate media aren’t liberal at all.
You: What’s the most important newspaper in the country, that sets the coverage agenda for the rest of the media?
CL: The New York Times, of course. But The Times is a very objective paper.
Y: When was the last time The Times endorsed a Republican for president over a Democrat?
CL: Ummm… I don’t know.
CL: What does that have to do with anything? The editorial pages are completely separate from the news pages.
Y: So, if a newspaper had only endorsed Republicans for the last 60 years, you’d still argue that it could be unbiased?
Y: Can you name a single such newspaper?
CL: No, but I’m sure there are some.
Y: I rest my case.
