Abstract Bias is largely in the eye of the beholder. Popular understandings of bias at one extreme run to the view that any favourable coverage whatsoever of the party you oppose, or any quoting of criticism of your favoured party, is a form of bias. Survey data gathered last year (1994) shows for the first time how journalists see the leanings of the major news media.
