Oyez is liberal?

Andy, I don't see how you reason that Oyez is liberal or biased in any way. It's one of the premiere SCOTUS resources on the net. As a matter of fact, I've never been in any government class (from AP Go/Po in high school to undergrad classes) that didn't recommend it as a study guide or reference source. Now, I can't speak for its blog since I've never read it, but the actual site is nothing more than a comprehensive resource on all cases that SCOTUS has heard, as well as short bios on all the Supreme Justices. You're the first person I've ever witnessed claim that it's biased. Stryker 14:11, 24 July 2007 (EDT)

Edit to add - The site is currently run by one of the law professors at Northwestern University and is even listed by SCOTUS itself as an unofficial source to obtain information on its cases along with FindLaw and LexisNexis.

Read its biographies and analysis. Run by law professors? That only confirms the description of it as liberal. Nearly all law professors are liberal.--Aschlafly 14:29, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
Not all professors are liberals (definitely confirmed from personal experience). But, as I can see I'm not going to be able to persaude you of the value of the site, we'll just have to agree to disagree and I won't bring it up anymore. Stryker 14:32, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
Stryker, probably 80% of professors voted for John Kerry in 2004, and perhaps 90% of law professors voted for him.--Aschlafly 14:40, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
Proving, once again, that we professors are a very intelligent bunch.--McIntyre 16:26, 24 July 2007 (EDT)
