I don't think it's 'happening'. I think it has been the status quo for well over half a century and probably by now over a century. It's very common that inhabitants of large cities tend to vote more left than right.
No matter if it's Amsterdam, Paris, London or New York for that matter.
It's a result of the population composition. Cities tend to have a way larger percentage of workers and social groups below that (economically). That has been the way probably since the industrial revolution.

I also don't think the media is left leaning and biased. Certainly not in these days where media is pretty much free to broadcast itself over the world.
20 or 30 years ago that might have been different, but not now, where internet is nowadays probably the main medium for media (so no state regulated output possible anymore). Just as much left biased media corporations as right biased media corporations, conservative media corporations and progressive media corporations. All tending to what their public wants to read and what their advertizers want to sell.
