Fox News host Chris Wallace asked former vice president Dick Cheney if he thinks the media has a liberal bias.

On "Fox News Sunday," Wallace concluded a wide-ranging interview by playing footage from Cheney's recent appearance on the "Today" show. At the end of the segment, someone with an Amnesty International sign reading "Torture Is A Crime: Investigate Cheney" seemed to get in front of the camera on the show's plaza, and the camera lingered on the sign until a commercial break.

"What do you make of that?" Wallace asked. "I somehow doubt that if Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama were speaking, they would have taken the shot and then suddenly a person with a sign would have been putting their picture up. I mean, simply, do you think there is a liberal bias in the mainstream media?"

"Oh, I think there probably is," Cheney said. But I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it. I think those of us right-thinking conservatives find that there are a lot of outlets out there now on the media, on the Internet that give us ample opportunity for our points of view to get across and to be heard."
