Oh, that liberal media
You've no doubt already read this, but what the hell. Lileks gives the political breakdown of your average newsroom:
In general, you'll find that most journalists drift to the left. They range from traditional Democrats to moderate-to-indifferent Democrats to fiercely partisan Democrats to DINOs who might well be Republicans if the idea of voting GOP didn't make them feel as if Mom would rise shrieking from the grave and accuse them of making FDR cry. There are a few Republicans in any newsroom, but they harbor the love that dare not speak its name.
I'm going to have to give some serious thought to where, if anywhere, I fall on this particular continuum.
