As we told you earlier, CNBC’s John Harwood expanded on a point made by CNN’s Brian Stelter, and explained that the challenge of remaining an objective journalist is not to come right out and say how awful and decrepit the Republican Party has become. Harwood didn’t use those exact words, but that’s pretty much what was said.
Not to be outdone, a New York Times op-ed writer has actually admitted media bias exists, but here’s who it supposedly hits hardest:
Most journalists really are doing their best to treat both parties fairly. But they often wrongly equate balance with the midpoint between the two parties’ ideologies — which leads to a frequent bias against Sanders and Warren, writes @DLeonhardt. https://t.co/GaotzdR8pi

Now there’s a take!
Journos’ political bias is against the far left. Got it. https://t.co/tSdVOngSXO

I love the "The centrists are the real evil villains!" crowd that thinks the NYT, WaPo, and the rest of the establishment press are actually too right-wing. https://t.co/4u0oqe3MiO

I won't speak for Sanders but I largely see bias towards, not against Warren. https://t.co/ZG4i3dKnle
