UCLA is not exactly a bastion of conservatism, but they found it was real...


I think the New York Times is very left leaning from the stuff I have
read there, but that's just my personal opinion rather than science.
The Washington Times is right leaning, as of course is Fox.

I'm not going to argue this to death, because I know I won't get
anywhere. I am simply stating my own opinion that people who are
journalists naturally have a left leaning view of the world. They vote
Democrat MUCH more than Republican. That's just a simple fact.
