Is This Why Most Journalists Are Democrats???

Most journalists take a number of psychology, sociology, political science, and humanities courses during their early years in college. Unfortunately, these courses have long served as ideological training programs, ignoring biological sources of self-serving, corrupt, and criminal behavior for a number of reasons, including lack of scientific training; postmodern, antiscience bias; & well-intentioned, facts-be-damned desire to have their students view the world from an egalitarian perspective. Instead, these disciplines ram home the idea that troubled behavior can be fixed through expensive socialist programs that, coincidentally, provide employment opportunities for graduates of the social sciences.Modern neuroscience is showing how flawed many of these policies have been—structural differences in the brains of psychopaths, for ex., help explain why remedial programs simply helped them become better at conning people

  • Journalists and Politicians have a great deal in common. Their ramblings don't necessarily have to be right they just have to be passionate enough about them to not shut up. My brother in law is a politician and he believes so much in the obama political crap that he is blinded. Much of what obama says makes no sense but to those that follow him it's ridiculous. Same with journalism. It takes a talented person to be answered a simple question and to never really answer it in 30 minutes worth of gibberish. It doesn't have to make any sense if you are passionate about what you're saying.

  • Most colleges today have almost nothing but ultra-liberal professors manning the classes, teaching their revised version of history and their warped worldviews. Is it any surprise that people come out brainwashed?

  • Boy, I don't know where this stuff comes from. Yikes. ARe you saying that college educated people are self-serving socialistic , and brain-washed? LOL. I bet the FAUX News Bloggers all have college educations. The only difference is the Fox News bloggers pretend they are smart .... while they are really prejudiced,narrow-minded, paranoid, small mided bigots. Do you think they learned that at college? Ha And do you really think the classes and studies offered at Colleges and Universities encourage people to be "Libs" or socialistic? That's nuts.
    I bet you are anti-education or else you haven't been to college. This whole post shows a lot of prejudice. There are so many conservative,right-wing Republican Journalists out there now, spewing their prejudice and devotion to conservative values. And they have college degrees. You know that is true.

  • Anon 46: So you are saying that if a journalist reports on the more conservative side of an issue they are while they are really prejudiced,narrow-minded, paranoid, small mided bigots (anon 46), but if they were to report like, say, Oberman, they would be smart, educated, and forward thinking. I think your whole response supported the question the OP had. Oh, and you seem to be one of those prejudiced,narrow-minded, paranoid, small mided bigots (anon 46) except I bet you are a democrat. Stop the insults. You lose your ability to be taken seriously. You just look petty and childish.

  • It makes sense that journalists' views would affect what they report. Some try to be unbiased, but others really use their medium to promote their agenda. If journalists are overwhelmingly liberal, that would indicate that our media, in general, will be overwhelmingly liberal and therefore biased.

    It is very difficult, if impossible, to find a completely unbiased journalist.
