Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) on Tuesday argued that the American media has a liberal bias and has lost the trust of Americans.
"Americans know that liberal media bias is a major problem in our country. They realize that our democracy rests on fair and balanced news. Instead of reporting the facts, though, the national liberal media pushes the agenda of the administration," Smith, who chairs the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, said on the House floor.
"Americans will continue to view the media as a problem until it provides fair and balanced coverage," Smith said.
