The name "business section" implies conservative coverage
Eric Alterman, author of “What Liberal Media? The Truth about Bias and the News,” believes that the name of the section in which most readers receive their business news implies a conservative bias, according to this story in the Daily Nexus, the student newspaper at UCal-Santa Barbara.
The story states: “Alterman also contended that, even if television pundits or politicians were not overtly liberally biased, the structure of media in general allows for much more coverage of conservative interests.
“‘Everyday I read the Business Section of the New York Times. Not the Labor Section, not the Environment Section,’ Alterman said, referring to two nonexistent sections. ‘These are conservative assumptions.'”
In other words, Alterman is implying that business coverage is conservative, a stark contrast to Fox News’ business anchor Neil Cavuto, who last month said that most business coverage is liberal.
