What Media Bias?

When I woke up this morning and my bleary eyes hit the television screen (ouch!), I noticed in the Good Morning America crawl the opening line to theABC News article on the British nutjob holocaust denier: "RIGHT-WING HISTORIAN PLEADS GUILTY TO HOLOCAUST DENIAL IN AUSTRIAN COURT".

Yippee. A European court has found a way to, once again, imprison a man for what he says, not for, say, fraud, or libel or slander, or some other offense which has a clear victim. But that's not the issue this morning. My question today is:

How's come they never refer to nutjobs on the left as "left-wing historian" or other such, but they always point out the bias of lunatics who are an embarrassment to the human race but nevertheless aren't socialists?
