Political Bias in News Magazines

  • Michael L. Geis

Abstract

Though I suspect that few people read all three of the major news magazines, Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News & World Report (USN&WR), people, in my personal experience, hold very strong views about their political biases. Time is usually said to be conservative, Newsweek liberal, and USN&WR very conservative or at least more conservative than Time. In an attempt to assess the merits of these views, I examined the coverage by these three magazines of former Vice President Walter Mondale and President Ronald Reagan during their presidential campaign.
