Cognitive Dissonance, US Media bias is pro-NSA

Cognitive Dissonance -- how else to explain the "liberal" but pro-Obama US media being biased pro-NSA? Little doubt that if a Republican was in the White House, that same media would be anti-NSA --

On the NSA, the media may tilt right : Columbia Journalism Review: ". . .Our findings indicate that the intense public concern about the NSA’s activities is not merely an artifact of biased coverage, since the media actually appears to be biased in the opposite direction. In a recent Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, 54 percent of respondents disagreed with dragnet collection of internet metadata and 71 percent disagreed with warrantless monitoring of US phone calls. Public opposition to the government surveillance might be even more pronounced if overall media coverage was neutral and unbiased. . . ."

No wonder the US mainstream media is neither respected nor trusted by the American people.
