I mispoke:

The first chart indicates that 50% of independents think the media is too liberal, 32% thinks its just right and 13 % think its too conservative.

So overall 32% of independents think the media has no bias and 63% think its biased (50% think it is too liberal and 13% think its too conservative).

Sorry for the confusion.

I don't think that the independents think more that the media are pro liberal, only just 50%, that proves that the MSM are more or less centrist, no?

The problem with these distributional results is that they never tell you the probability of getting the spread that they find. It is a simple statistic to calculate, for example the Z-statistic for proportions I think is fine.

Depending on the size of a sample, a skew of 57% to 43% may either be less than 5% likely to occur at random, or it could effectively be a random variation from the expected 50/50 distribution.

Had a friend in Africa who had the 'light weight' Guardian shipped to him, he thought the Beeb was just right politically.

Proof positive the Beeb is leftist.

Having a view about evolution or climate change is leftist? I'd rather call it scientific. :roll:

Believing your views on evolution and climate change are correct without any evidence to support them is idiotic.

Only an idiot ignoramus can say that there is no evidence to support evolution and climate change. ;)

There is absolutely n o evidence what so ever that life is spontaneously generated from nothing. There is no evidence at all that human activity changes the climate.

The Origin of Species much more than Abiogenesis. Evolution theory explains how species develop from earlier species. ;)

Here is evidence for the climate change.

Having eyes does mean seeing, especially when you keep them closed. :roll:
