Is there liberal bias in the lamestream news?

If a Republican party leader said "I hate Democrats" it would be the lead story for the evening news. Now turn it around, while campaigning for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, Howard Dean stated emphatically "I hate Republicans and everything they stand for." If you get most of your news from the alphabet soup channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC etc), I'm fairly certain you heard nothing about this statement. See last paragraph of this article. The prevalent bias in the news can take many forms. What isn't reported is often as telling as what is reported. Two black men have been nominated to serve on the United States Supreme Court. One was nominated by a Democratic president (LBJ) the other was nominated by a Republican president (GHWB). Only one senator voted against the confirmation of both men, former KKK Grand Kleagle Robert Byrd. If he was a Republican that fact would have been considered important news. However, since Byrd is a Democrat his sordid past is considered irrelevent.
