First round is for acceptance, burden of proof is shared.

In this debate, I will be arguing that most news organizations, with a few exceptions such as Fox News, have a liberal bias, opposed to neutrality in reporting.
I will not be using MSNBC in my arguments, as they have admitted their bias.
Fox New's conservative bias (and perhaps that of some other conservative sources) is not to be used to justify most of the Media's liberal bias, as Fox News is just one conservative news organization compared to many liberal news organizations.

Some examples of what counts as (Liberal) bias:
Praise for the Affordable Care Act or giving reasons why it will prove successful, as well as criticism of people or a person who oppose(s) it
Praise for the LGBT movement or nonconstructive criticism of those who oppose the LGBT movement

I await a worthy opponent.

P.S. Fox News is not as Conservative as you may think, and here's my proof:

This horrendous media bias is denied by countless people, people who have been brainwashed for so long that they cannot see they clear bias against Conservatism.
