They have lost control of the horizontal, they have lost control of the vertical. Heck, Obama knew that last year when he opined that we need a clearing house for the news. As he mourned for the days of three networks giving us their version of the news.

Why is the media, especially the media that is exposed to the truth on a daily basis, so overwhelmingly Democratic?

Conversely, why is it that those who support the Right, seem to be completely delusional?
Why do they feel the need to deny science?

Question 1. Why do you assume people who agree with you know more than anyone else? Confirmation bias.

Question 2. The media expsed to the truth? They live in a bubble exposed only to each other.

Question 3. Deny science? That would be the liberals.

The media wants you to think the bias is in favor of an ideology when it is actually in favor of a certain tribe.

No, I assume that the White House Reporters know more about the White House than most people.
I assume that people who track down the news makers and interview them and research what is happening in depth, know more about what is happening than most people.

Seriously, you think that the media only talks with the media?
How do they get the story?

You wouldn't understand, as you have just clearly demonstrated.

Really?

It's the liberals that deny climate change?

It's the liberals that tend to deny evolution?

It's the liberals that tend to believe that the story of Noah is an actual historical event?

It's the liberals that tend to believe in young earth creationism?

About the only science I see liberals denying is that of vaccinations. Pretty egregious but still doesn't stack up to the anti science wing of the RW

Furthermore the one denier continues with the debunked argument that backers of climate change refer to CO2 as a "pollutant". CO2 is a greenhouse gas. It isn't the fact that we are creating CO2 that is the problem. It's that we are creating it faster than natural sources can remove it. This increases the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Increase the amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere and you increase the amount of heat trapped on earth increasing the temperature leading to detrimental environmental affects.
