What’s “bias”?

One of the oldest pieces I’ve ever read on media bias is still the best.

And now, as a lot of people try to dismiss the media as partisan (which, to be fair, is often true on cable, especially with certain propaganda arms), it’s a good time to take a look at the structural biases that aren’t partisan.

Trump gained this power because he fascinated the media. He moved the needle. That got him a lot of free advertising. This piece is prescient.
