There is no media bias because the two party system is an illusion. Mainstream media exists to perpetuate the controversy that keeps the left and right at each others throat, which in turn prevents any and all progress/cooperation. Meanwhile the sinister powers that control it all viciously pursue their own agenda behind the scenes. If there seems to be a bias from either end it is simply the media trying to temporarily curve support to one end to even things out and keep the battle lines drawn straight down the middle.

From what I have seen lately, the media exists to promote the illusion that the parties are at each other's throat.  They seem to be able to agree on things which are detrimental to America out of ear shot of the public from which the media protects both parties.

That's because the two party system is an illusion; they're all on the same team. They have to create the controversy and put on a show so people don't become aware of their game.
