Is the mainstream media biased toward the right or to the left?

To me, the mainstream media is obviously biased to the left. However, when I spoke with my niece in college, she thinks the media is biased toward the right. I was amazed, does any one else think that and why? I am talking about TV shows and articles that claim to be objective reporting like newspaper articles and news broadcasts. I am not talikng about news comentaty shows like Rush limbaugh or Bill O'reilly.

Depends on the outlet. And unfortunately Rush and Bill are part of mainstream media, whether it serves to prove your (completely wrong) point or not.
