University campuses, Hollywood studios, and the leading TV networks have all but abandoned any pretense of balance or objectivity: among professors as well as producers, conservatives count as an endangered species while liberals and leftists remain vastly over-represented. In this challenging and controversial lecture, Michael Medved asks why -- and shoots down the notion of some organized, deliberate conspiracy. Instead, academics and actors follow their self-interest -- showing a preference for precisely those policies that help to make them more powerful. Leftists in media and academia may claim idealistic selflessness, but they consistently embrace opinions that serve to enhance their own prestige and influence. In this talk (and a feisty question period), Michael casts a fresh light on the old question of bias in the entertainment industry and our most prominent college campuses --- and makes some practical suggestions for challenging the liberal monopoly. Recorded live at the Tacoma campus of the University of Washington.

    Michael has some good hard evidence that it is the case that media and academia tilt left, but the explanation for why (which is what the title is) is just a hunch. I'd like an actual reason with facts and evidence to back it up as to why. Also, in the recording, when Michael was giving this talk, there was an issue with a door in the auditorium that was beeping when people opened it. Michael spends a good 10% of the whole speech talking about this or telling people where to sit. I think he should re-record this in a studio without the unrelated content, or at least edit these parts out.
