There was an interesting discussion about bias on "Squawk Box" this morning.
It started with comments about the relative sizes of candidate cut-outs they have on set. Then Joe Kernan went on to note some eyebrow raising comments at the Republican convention from a competing network (and a former employer of mine). Then he and John Harwood starting ribbing each other about bias.
Harwood made an observation that journalism, as a career field, tends to draw more liberal leaning people. I guess that's true. The school training is called "liberal arts" after all. But business, the frontline of money and taxes, tends to draw more conservative types.
So then business journalism must be the intersection of neutrality ... totally unbiased, right?
