Talk of Iowa

The most interesting off hand comment of the morning was the exchange between Rob Davis and his guest, Kathleen Richardson, connecting blogging to conservative AM radio. Hmm. I wonder why that comment came to mind. And yet, I don't necessarily need to wonder why bloggers with libertarian or conservative ideas tend to write. You just need to have one issue focused letter submitted to the DMR three weeks prior to an election and then published the day after an election to understand why these blogs exist.

The text pasted in below is a compelation of research put together by the conservative Media Research Center:

Most Recent Data: Five Times More Journalists
Are Liberal Than Conservative


In May 2004, the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press surveyed 547 journalists and media executives, including 247 at national-level media outlets. The poll was similar to one conducted by the same group (then known as the Times Mirror Center for the People and the Press) in 1995. The actual polling was done by the Princeton Survey Research Associates and the report was released May 23, 2004.
