POLITICO has interesting media report about the bias at New York Times:

"In his final column for the Times, Brisbane wrote that his fellow staffers "share a kind of political and cultural progressivism" that "virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times." Brisbane even argued that Times reporters approached some liberal issues, like gay marriage and the Occupy movement, "more like causes than news subjects."  

"Across the paper’s many departments, though, so many share a kind of political and cultural progressivism — for lack of a better term — that this worldview virtually bleeds through the fabric of The Times."

Meanwhile New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson  comments as only a media liberal can:

"I agree with another past public editor, Dan Okrent, and my predecessor as executive editor, Bill Keller, that in covering some social and cultural issues, the Times sometimes reflects its urban and cosmopolitan base," - Jill Abramson

TRANSLATION: Yes, we are biased!

Jill Abramson meet Mark Bittman. Brisbane is right!
