(the Atlantic) Ideological openness is even less present in right-leaning institutions than in their mainstream analogs, especially in media, or so says Conor Friedersdorf, a staff writer at the Atlantic.
“For decades, conservatives have complained about liberal control over academia and media, often with good reason. Diversity of thought is essential for any institution intent on informing an audience. Students and news consumers deserve better than any information bubble can deliver. Urging these center-left institutions to diversify and guard against bias remains valid. … There is no longer a leftist monopoly in higher learning or media. The right has successfully built alternatives in both areas. Do these right-leaning entities strive for intellectual diversity? They do not.”
