"The ascendancy of 'news' with an attitude - a spin, a bias - is undeniable," reports Newsweek, which cites Fox News Channel, Air America Radio, Fahrenheit 9/11 and the Drudge Report as examples. The director of the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press is worried: "If news choices are increasingly driven by partisanship, either because they're biased or because they're perceived to be biased, then I think the risk is that people will turn inward. They're going to be exposed to fewer things that may challenge their points of view. And it would make sense that this is not an especially good thing for a democracy."
