Greg Valiga notes a Media Matters survey finding that “a plurality of the American electorate has concluded that conservatives have the most power and influence in today’s media.” The survey also finds a plurality of Americans who say the media have been too soft in reporting on the Bush administration.

Exodus and Focus on the Family officials frequently complain of “liberal” bias in the news media, but they neglect to point out that the few surveys supporting their claims redefine “liberal” and “conservative” in order to achieve the desired poll results.

Yes, the news media are more “liberal” than the religious right — but so is the Bush Administration, and few people outside the religious-right, pro-Confederacy, and Christian Identity movements would accuse the current White House of liberalism.
