The NY Times editor admits a bias in his paper. In a memo (PDF link) to his staff, Bill Keller said “even sophisticated readers of The New York Times sometimes find it hard to distinguish between news coverage and commentary in our pages.”

Perhaps journalists and journalism professors will take this criticism seriously. But, I doubt it.

Not surprising that this admission made little news, as noted by this blogger. The people in charge of most media outlets share the bias and therefore don’t see problem.
