Conservative media think tank finds bias in press in favor of McCain

Last week wingnuttia-that is the world of right wing wacko blogs-was all [a] titter with charges of media bias in favor of Obama and harping on the amount of coverage Obama got last week. Ironically the LATIMES published a story on sunday announcing the following:

"The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, where researchers have tracked network news content for two decades, found that ABC, NBC and CBS were tougher on Obama than on Republican John McCain during the first six weeks of the general-election campaign.

During the evening news, the majority of statements from reporters and anchors on all three networks are neutral, the center found. And when network news people ventured opinions in recent weeks, 28% of the statements were positive for Obama and 72% negative.

Network reporting also tilted against McCain, but far less dramatically, with 43% of the statements positive and 57% negative, according to the Washington-based media center."
