Nunberg on media bias…

A student just dropped by my office a few minutes ago looking for information about Geoffrey Nunberg, the linguist and NPR commentator. We’re reading his book, The Way We Talk Now, in class. In an effort to help, I typed his name into the Google search engine and found what the student was looking for. I also found this commentary about media bias from March 2002. I find it interesting but certainly not conclusive. I continue to maintain that political bias of all sorts may be “proven” depending on what data is used. Nunberg’s data might suggest a conservative bias.
