No media bias, right?

This from Washington Post political editor, David Broder, 79, when talking to students at Trinity University in San Antonio. Story by Jim Forsyth.

...the allegations of media bias frequently stem from the proliferation of politically charged radio talk shows and television analysis programs, which viewers and listeners 'mistake' for journalism.

"I think their reputation kind of washes over our reputations," he said. "The folks who are sounding off about politics on all of the talk shows and the 24 hour news channels and so on. I would not make the argument that those people are free of bias. They are in fact paid to be opinionated."
