This liberal media bias chart explores representation in American political media.

The media landscape has become more and more hostile and partisan, and as a result, many believe that bias has never been stronger in terms of reporting. Seeking to shed some light on this topic, 4th estate compiled research to come up with a fairly clear answer. Separated by network and based on the reporting of the 2012 election candidates, the chart showed that bias existed, but that with the exception of but one network, the bias tends to be against Obama instead of in his favor.

Putting numbers to a phenomenon that is widely argued and speculated, this chart is a good reminder that media may not be as centered or well-rounded as some believe it should be.
