A subtle but telling example of media bias:

Just before I arrived in Berkeley, a headline in the news section of the San Francisco Chronicle referred to me as a “right-wing pundit.”

In last night’s speech I mused that if New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd came to the Bay Area, no Chronicle headline would refer to her as a “left-wing pundit.” The very next day I was proven right.

Update: In the Chronicle’s follow-up story (published on Friday morning), the headline refers to me as a “Columnist.” Much better.
