I am a journalism major and yesterday we watched a movie on media bias. The movie was an attack on Fox News and it basically ran down the case of how their news is not fair and balanced. We then had to write a few examples from the movie and talk about "how not to report." While there were a couple conservatives in the movie attacking Fox News, the movie had a liberal slant.

Now I am pretty far left, but for some reason this is bothering me. I feel like it's this kind of thing that makes people think journalism schools are almost always liberal feeding grounds.

1. Am I nuts or was this not a good idea for them to show us?
2. Should I suggest a different movie about media bias without a slant?
3. What movies or books are good on fair media and reporting?
