UCLA Professor Tim Groseclose’s new book “Left Turn: How Liberal Media Bias Distorts the American Mind” empirically demonstrates that the media is liberally biased. But why is it that the media and academia are so dominated by liberals?

In the first part of The Daily Caller’s extensive interview with Groseclose, the professor explained how he empirically determined the media was liberally biased and offered some solutions to the problem. In this final segment, Groseclose explains why the stark disparity exists between liberals and conservatives in academia and in the media, institutions with which he is intimately familiar.

Groseclose also admits during the segment that he would not have written his latest book on media bias if he did not have tenure already.
