Tim Groseclose is the author of the new book, “Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind.”

Groseclose, the Marvin Hoffenberg Chair of American Politics at UCLA, says he has proven empirically that the American mass media is liberally biased. The professor recently came to The Daily Caller’s Washington office to discuss his new book and his solution to the bias problem.

    This guy is so full of shit. 
    Here is the definition of empirical

     

    em·pir·i·cal  

      (

    m-pîr

    -k

    l) KEY 

    ADJECTIVE:

     Relying on or derived from observation or experiment: empirical
    results that supported the hypothesis.
    Verifiable or provable by means of observation or
    experiment: empirical laws. Guided by practical experience and not theory,
    especially in medicine.

    I have read dozens of this guys
    empirical observations of why I hate liberals, none of them factual, by his own
    admission.  He has a built in bias that colors his opinion toward people
    who are not conservative.  What makes this guy so repugnant is that he is
    unwilling to debate a liberal head on and test his empirical observation
    against the facts.  At least Coulter mixes it up and is truthful about
    making a very good living bashing liberals.  Are we suppose be impressed
    that he is a teacher at UCLA?   Is this guy fucking blind to the Fox
    media network and the Conservative talk networks.  Liberals only have one
    liberal radio network and it is bankrupt.  Fox news dwarfs all the
    other networks combined.  It is the major media network in every metro city
    in the Country.  This guy needs to start using the internet instead of his
    eye balls to shape his world view if he wants to be taken seriously.
    He breaks bread with all the religious nuts who empirically conclude that a
    Christian god put this world together 6000 years ago and is punishing all us
    reality based people who believe that the Conservative movement is all about
    who gets the biggest slice of the pie.
