The panelists discussed political bias in the news media. They talked about the differences between print and electronic media and the internal struggle of newspapers to be objective. Several panelists agreed that much of the electronic media was economically biased, i.e. content was driven toward entertainment by the desire to protect and increase profits. Some panelists also voiced concerns that the media was biased in favor of the government, corporate interests, and other powerful sources, and that personality played an important role in whether an individual was portrayed positively or negatively. Mr. Auletta moderated the panel. Panelists responded to questions from the moderator and the audience. close
