The Pew Foundation performed a study of the negative and positive coverage of Obama and Romney during this election season. It's a long and detailed report of many kinds of media. One striking result: MSNBC is more biased for Obama than Fox is for Romney! This isn't news to conservatives, but it may come as a shock to people who actual believe media claims of balanced coverage.
I told you so. Obama isn't as great as the liberal news media indicates, and Romney is much better than they indicate. They caricatured Romney past the point of recognition with personal accounts of him! Those accounts all agree Romney is kind, caring, honest, hardworking, helpful, humble, thrifty, and funny. That's the guy we met at the debates - though if the news media were worth their salt we would already have known his real character. I've never found personal accounts of Obama besides his own - and I've looked. Obama is also the guy we met at the debates: arrogant, dismissive of alternative points of view, a liar, and egotistical. That should also not have been news to us, in a fair and balanced news world.
Read or watch both sides, because balanced coverage doesn't exist in one place. Never has, never will. And how can anyone make an informed opinion if relying on only one point of view? Impossible.
