Given the examples of biased media coverage, from CNN’s sandbagging to NBC’s ignoring the whole Biden gaffe to Chris Matthews openly campaigning for Obama … I just want to bring to your attention. (Update: It’s a better link now) Is anyone really surprised?
John McCain received nearly twice as much negative press coverage as did Barack Obama. According to the report, 57% of the stories about John McCain during the period between September 8 and October 16 were “clearly negative in tone,” compared to 29% for Obama. Conversely, stories that were “clearly positive in tone” favored Obama over McCain by a factor of more than two to one, 36% for Obama to just 14% for McCain.
