An assessment of the op-ed pages of the nation

Left-wing media bias? Doesn't look like it...

From The Sixth Estate, "how guest space gets allocated on the op-ed pages of the nation’s major newspapers":
1. Business associations, consultants, and free-market think tanks — 21%
2. Conservative politicians and insiders — 16%
3. Progressive NGOs, unions, and environmentalists — 12%
4. Liberals politicians and insiders — 7%
5. Social conservative and religious groups — 7%
6. NDP politicians and insiders — 4%
Data in support will be posted on the site.
