When I went to journalism school in California, in the 70s, there was no obvious divide between conservative and liberal. The over arching perspective at school was unselfconsciously liberal. With a fresh conservative perspective entering into the media milieu, I'd love to be going to J school today. Class discussions must be really hot!

Absolutely, that's true. Just look at the morning shows.

You watch CBS and you get lots of hard news, slightly left of center but with an obvious attempt to be thorough.

You watch Fox News and you get news that is tailored to the right-of-center crowd.

You watch ABC and you get news tailored to a predominantly female, low-information crowd (right on down to the stereotypically gay weatherman). Lots of entertainment and true crime stories, little actual hard news (and what is typically veers hard left).

You watch NBC and it's not all that much different than ABC, but it is toned down.

I don't watch CNN enough to get a vibe from them.
