It’s not exactly breaking news that most journalists lean left. I used to do that myself. I grew up at The New York Times,
so I’m familiar with the species. For most of the media, bias grew out
of the social revolution of the 1960s and ’70s. Fueled by the civil
rights and anti-Vietnam War movements, the media jumped on the
anti-authority bandwagon writ large. The deal was sealed with Watergate,
when journalism was viewed as more trusted than government—and far more
exciting and glamorous. Think Robert Redford in All the President’s Men.
Ever since, young people became journalists because they wanted to be
the next Woodward and Bernstein, find a Deep Throat, and bring down a
president. Of course, most of them only wanted to bring down a Republican president. That’s because liberalism is baked into the journalism cake.

City Hall Bureau Chief before becoming Executive Editor of the Daily
News and, now, chief political columnist for the New York Post.
