Since NYU hasn't had a Minutemen style brouhaha lately, some NYU students - including two College Republicans - appeared on Neil Cavuto's Fox News program to detail the difficulties of being a conservative in the classroom. From the Washington Square News:

Senior Sara Zerner and NYU College Republicans David Laska and Christina Gonzalez participated in a short segment of "Your World With Neil Cavuto,"¯ after Fox News approached the NYU College Republicans.

Neil Cavuto introduced the segment by stressing NYU's cost of enrollment.

"You pay up to go to a top-notch school, and then you're told 'Will you please zip it?,' "¯ he said. "It is happening at places like New York University, where a four-year education could set you back as much as 200,000 bucks."¯

When Cavuto asked the students for examples of liberal bias, Zerner said that when she argued a conservative point by using a fact she heard on Fox News, her professor said it was an invalid news source.

"He did not answer [what made Fox News invalid] but insisted on jumping around the classroom, making monkey noises at me, literally,"¯ she said, "and basically causing me to cry in front of a lecture of about 90 people."¯

The old monkey noise retort! The director of the undergraduate politics department Youssef Cohen said, "All professors who have an opinion do not and should not impose their views. If students have any complaint whatsoever, they should come to me. ... They can talk to me in absolute confidence." What Cohen doesn't realize is that appearing on Fox News might be like the Holy Grail for conservatives - why complain to the department when you can go on TV? Even politics department chair Nathaniel Beck thought that Fox News probably "exaggerated" the segment!

For his part, Laska told the Washington Square News, "We wanted to take a step in exposing this trend to a national audience, not attack individual professors or our school."¯

You cannot deny the fact that, with the exception of Fox, almost all of the media leans left. While you may deny that Fox News is "Fair and Balanced" as they say, you cannot deny the fact that they have many people from both sides of the political spectrum on their shows. Hell, one of their top shows is dual-hosted by a Republican and a Democrat. With the rest of the media it is very hard to find a similar situitation in which they give equal-ish time to both sides. Most give far more time if not almost all of their time to the left.

Sources:

If you read those sources you will find that while the media leans right on certain issues, they mainly lean right with the rest of the country.

Coudent agree more. The fact fox always hammers the other networks rating wise speaks for itself.

True they do have alot of "liberal" people on their shows, but the thing is it's quality, not the quanity of them, most of the time they are incompetant halftards the have to represent the "other side", but life is not black and white, but several shades of grey. Thats why I dont watch any news channel but C-Span when it comes to polotics, because they just show you the senate/ house meeting, so it's nearly impossible for them to be biased.

First of all, news commentary isn't news. It's just entertainment.

Second of all, if you're going to call fox "conservative", you're just insulting conservatives.
Fox is just, well, stupid.

Actually, it only speaks to the nature of their demographic. The baby-boomers are a huge demographic, and that's where almost all the fox news viewers are.

Fox doesn't do very well with the younger generations.

They have one Democrat, and he has FAR less air time than the conservative.

Every other on air talent at FOX is conservative. Brit Hume, Neil Covuto, Chris Wallace, Bill O'reilly, Sean Hannity, etc...

Also in terms of show vewership, FOX NEWS is #1.
However overall in 2006 through overall viewers that have tunned in, CNN is #1.

MSNBC.. 3rd but gaining in both categories. They are making great progress.

Common sense already has too many advocates. We should do away with it.

And the middle class needs no advocates - if they'd stop voting against their own best interests, they wouldn't need advocation.
