Brit Hume: Left-Leaning Media Bias Is Tangible

Ad Feedback

Fox News Analyst Brit Hume told CBN News that media bias is tangible and real and has been on display during press coverage of the administration's handling of the embassy attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Hume spoke with CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody on this week's The Brody File show. He said journalists do a poor job of guarding against their left-leaning views.

"Journalists are a little bit like judges. They need to discipline themselves to look at things in a neutral way. It's not easily done," Hume said. "Fairness in my view is not an attitude. Fairness is a skill and most journalists don't think they have to practice that skill because they don't think they're biased, but you see it."

"Can you imagine what the coverage would be like if this Benghazi episode had happened with a Republican president?" Hume asked. "The coverage would be very much more aggressive, the question of what the president knew and when and how it came to pass that someone went out on a Sunday show speaking for the administration and said a whole series of things, which appears the administration knew at the time were not true."

"That would be very aggressively promoted and every investigative reporter in the United States would be on the case," he said.

Hume also talked extensively about his Christian faith and how his son's suicide changed his life forever. You can watch the interview this Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET on the ABC Family Channel.
