Watch where you paste those labels

It wasn't reported in any Texas newspaper, but earlier this month, Stanford professor David Brady and economics student Jonathan Ma released another glaring report on media bias. Reviewing news stories over a 12-year period -- from 1990 to 2002 -- Brady and Ma found that The New York Times and The Washington Post were far more likely to label a U.S. senator "conservative" than "liberal." According to the Stanford study, the "conservative" label tagged U.S. senators three, four or five times as often as the "liberal" label was applied to the other side.
