    wow!! what a conclusion! balanced only in the least important way, though. the *real* media bias is sensationalism. if it bleeds, it leads, as they say. so in the clinton era they focused on scandals, not because they were conservative but because they were sensational; now they focus on the bloodiest aspects of iraq for the same reason.
