In a blog post on his HBO website, liberal comedian Bill Maher writes that Fox News and conservatives don’t understand what media bias actually is:

Claiming “liberal bias” is like a tick. If you make up a scandal and it doesn’t get reported to your satisfaction, it’s not because the whole Solyndra thing was a great big nothingburger, it’s because the liberal media is protecting the president. If Sarah Palin says something stupid and it gets reported, it’s not because Sarah Palin said something stupid. It’s because the liberal media has it out for strong conservative women who quit their jobs and do nothing for years. …

… 95% of the time we have to sit through some wingnut screeching about liberal media bias, they don’t actually understand who is actually bound to a standard of journalism (journalists) and who isn’t (everyone else). They’re just upset that people exist outside their bubble and they don’t believe the same things they do.
