    I remember hearing conservatives (and I was one of them back then) talk of the 'dominant liberal media'. And it sounded like a catechism when they talked about it:

    "ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Time and Newsweek".

    Nowadays even Wikipedia is guilty of "liberal bias" and when the fact-checking site Snopes debunked all of the false e-rumors about candidate Obama, well, that was proof that Snopes is part of the 'liberal media' too - or, it was presented as part of the Obama propaganda machine (there's that projection again).

    Conservapedia is even trying to scrub the Bible of all of it's 'liberal bias'.

    There are actual quotes that should remove all doubt. One from Yahoo Answers: "I pretty much believe that if it is not FOX or talk radio . . . it is liberal".

    liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
