Leftist Journalist Admits Bias & Agenda

By Steve Hunley Over the years, readers will recall I have maintained there is an appalling bias in the media.  This would not be so appalling were it not presented in the guise of “news.”  There is a place for opinion and commentary, which used to be in the editorial section.  Now, virtually every news […]
