To the left, everything is viewed through a political lens. Their bias emanates like 1,000 suns.
~ Aristotle Sabouni
If you want to see leftist bias in media, you just have to look at all the examples of how far off from their reviewers are from their viewers. I use the spread as a predictor of whether I'll like a film. Big spread with audience over critics? I'm going to like it. But big spread with critics over audience? I'll usually side with audience.

|You could rationally, write off a few of these as coincidence. But that we have so many examples of them fawning over error-ridden garbage that just happens to fit a far left world view, seems to hint at a bias.|

Conclusion[edit | edit source]
I've learned over the decades that:
- if it gives the far left critics a wedgie? That means it's probably entertaining and historically accurate.
- If the critics love it, and give it an academy award, and it's presenting any real life person or event, then it's probably highly fictionalized tripe that will irritate the crap out of me.
Of course this hasn't persuaded anyone: those that like their alternate realities, don't want anything that red-pills them. I've even had some that tried to argue with me that it was conservatives or independents that are too biased, and that's what skews these numbers the way they do. The problem is, that the goal is to entertain the audience (the most people), not just the critics.
