How Biased Is My News Outlet?

In a study done by Tim Groseclose, he made a test to calculate one Political Quotient (PQ). He then gave the test to multiple political think tanks and other organizations. Then he created a program to see which organizations major news outlets cited and then used that to calculate the news outlets’ PQ. It is on a scale of 00.0 Hardcore Conservative to 100.0 which is hardcore Liberal.

Here are the results…

  ABC Good Morning America 56.1
  ABC World News Tonight 61.0  
  CBS Early Show 66.6
