The Effects of Media Bias

So Polipundit has a post (one in a string of ones in a similar theme) about the strength of the current U.S. economy.

What's interesting is that if you check current polling numbers at Rasmussen, 32% of Americans think that the economy is in a recession.
Thirty-two percent (32%) of Americans say the U.S. economy is in a recession. That's down from 33% a week ago and 38% a month ago. Since the Rasmussen Index was created in October 2001, that number has never fallen below 31%.
If you wonder how that could be the case, look no farther than the front page of CNN. If you click on the link titled "GDP misses forecast" you get to see an article with the headline "Economic growth slows in second quarter". To their credit, the subheadline is "But GDP grows above 3 percent rate for ninth straight quarter, inflation measures in check."

What media bias?
