According to the Pew Research Center, the liberal media is completely in-the-tank for
President Obama Mitt Romney.
While a friendly press in the tank for President Obama may fit nicely into the right’s narrative of liberal bias in the press, a new study from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism shows that of all the presidential candidates during this election cycle, President Obama has had the least favorable coverage by the news media. Since January, presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney has actually enjoyed twice as much positive coverage as President Obama.
The media’s interest in covering Mitt Romney more favorably than President Obama is in ratings. It’s about keeping viewers attached to their television sets. Because few people are entertained by a one-horse race.
You could say the media has turned the presidential campaign into the biggest reality show ever conceived. One which every network has a right to broadcast. And what’s a reality show without a little fake controversy and suspense?
In related news, the recent polls which gave Romney a two point lead have magically reversed themselves.
