CNN’s media critic Brian Stelter was stunned when an expert brought on his network to discuss bias at Fox News also criticized CNN for left-wing bias.

Stelter interviewed two researchers from the University of California at Berkeley, who conducted a study where Fox News viewers were paid to watch CNN and their reactions were documented and analyzed.

“Basically, you’re proving what we’ve sensed for a while, which is, Fox viewers are in the dark about bad news for the GOP,” Stelter said to Professor Joshua Kalla, one of the researchers.

“That’s right. Fox and CNN cover different issues, and Fox News predominantly covers issues that make the GOP look good, and make Democrats look bad. On the flip side, CNN engages in this partisan coverage filtering as well, we find,” Kalla responded.

He went on to present one example of the signing of the Abraham Accords under former President Donald Trump where Fox News covered the major accomplishment about 15 times more than CNN did.

“We saw how much both networks are encouraging in this partisan coverage filtering. It’s not about one side, it’s about the media writ large,” Kally continued.

“I think you’re engaging in some both-sides-ism there, Josh,” Stelter admonished him.

“Not trying to lay out a moral equivalency,” Kalla replied. “It’s not about what an objective standard is. It’s really about how all networks do engage in this. And in order for viewers to get a realistic picture of the world, we need viewers to see all types of information. And unfortunately what we find in the study is that the viewers don’t want to engage in watching both sides.”

He added that most people want to watch the news media that will make them feel good and that all news outlets need to do a better job of presenting both sides fairly in order to educate the public completely.
