Help finding biased articles

My girlfriend has an essay to do about egocentric thinking in authors. Sorta along the lines where the author has the mindset of 'I'm right, you're wrong.' I said I'd help her ( I had an article in mind but can't find it!) The more reputable the author the better but anything will do. Editorials definitely count! Deadline is tomorrow! We procrastinate too much. =(

    Political commentators are the lowest hanging fruit here. ;)

    Bill O'Reilly

    Pat Buchanan

    Also, Red State, FreeRepublic, or anything similar.

    Pretty much all the major respected op-ed columnists will fit the bill. The standard form of an op-ed is basically, "Here's why I'm right and the other guys are wrong."

    Maureen Dowd, Richard Cohen, Eugene Robinson, and George Will are just a few of the better known, but the opinion pages of any major newspaper will provide plenty of material.

    The Economist's articles are largely opinion, and they are extremely self-confident. I'm not sure what you bean by "biased," though. Having a solid opinion that you are confident of in an opinion piece is different than biased reporting.

    Sweet! Thanks guys! She found a few gems from these links and wrote her paper. Ended up writing about McCains daughter ("I feel so American when people rev their Harleys.")

    Doc: Nice catch! =D

    Thanks again guys!
