Media bullying is aggressive bias by the media in the attempt to influence a candidate, a politician, an institution, or even sports contestants.

Examples of media bullying include:

  • trying to force Hillary Clinton to pull out of the Democratic primary
  • forcing Queen Elizabeth to give a special public eulogy for the media favorite Princess Diana, who had been estranged from the royal family
  • imposing strict gun control in Britain and Australia by creating an hysteria from over-publicized killings in the 1990s
  • ridiculing Vice President Dan Quayle for his gaffes, in contrast with downplaying gaffes by liberals
  • forcing President Richard Nixon to resign for covering up a scandal, in contrast with defending President Bill Clinton's covering up a scandal
  • sex abuse in public schools is worse than in religious institutions, yet the media constantly bullies religious (especially Catholic) officials about it
  • the media bullies the competitors of Tiger Woods in every major golf contest
  • the media bullies Paris Hilton as dumb, but she's no dumber than other Hollywood figures
  • the media bullied airships into terminating service by creating an unjustified hysteria based on the Hindenburg accident
