UCLA finds leftward media bias

A new academic study (soon to be published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics) found significant leftward media bias:
Of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 scored left of center, with CBS' "Evening News," The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times ranking second, third and fourth most liberal behind the news pages of The Wall Street Journal.
Here is UCLA's press release summarizing the findings.
