Here’s a shock: journalists and non-media types in the United States have very divergent views on press freedom, bias and journalists’ rights.

One of the more intersting (and positive, in my humble opinion) findings of a study by the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center is that that Americans as a whole are far less dissaproving of partisan bias in journalism than American journalists are. Perhaps the ideology of phoney “objectivity” is breaking down.
