Conservative Media Bias: Obama Gets The Most Negative Coverage of Any 2012 Candidate
A new study of the mainstream media coverage of the 2012 election found that every single Republican candidate received more positive coverage than Barack Obama.
Over the course of 23 weeks The Pew Center’s Project For Excellence in Journalism studied the media coverage of the all the positive media coverage of any Republican. Thirty one percent of the coverage Palin received was positive. To put it another way, by a 3-2 margin, Sarah Palin’s media coverage was positive.
The candidate who received the most negative coverage from the supposed liberal media was President Barack Obama. According to the study,“As for Barack Obama, 9% of the news coverage about him over the last five months has registered as positive while 34% has been negative and 57% has been neutral or largely straight news accounting of events. In each of the 23 weeks studied, his negative coverage exceeded his positive coverage by more than 20 percentage points. And in none of those weeks did his negative coverage fall below 30%. The tone of Obama’s coverage on blogs, while still overwhelmingly negative, was slightly better—14% positive and 36% negative.”
The liberal media bias that conservatives complain about on a daily basis is a myth. The right is correct about one thing though. There is bias in the mainstream media, but that bias is in favor of conservatives. The study also found that the tone of the media coverage drives poll results. How voters feel about a candidate is shaped by the type of coverage that candidate gets.
The rise of Herman Cain is a perfect example of this dynamic in action. After the media decided that Cain’s victory in a meaningless Florida straw poll made him a serious contender, they have heaped a steady stream of positive coverage on the formerly second tier candidate. The result of this coverage is that Herman Cain is now among the leaders in the GOP field. The media is playing an active role in the 2012 contest. By subjectively deciding who gets the positive coverage, the media is shaping the 2012 GOP field.
Obama is getting so much negative coverage, not because his support has vanished, but because the media wants a close 2012 election. Close elections increase viewership, which drives ad revenue. A tight General Election is money maker for the corporate media.
Here is how the media is trying to bring Obama’s popularity down. First, they run lots of negative stories about Obama. Then they conduct polls that show Obama’s popularity slipping. They follow this up with another round of negative stories about the president based on their own polling which was influenced by their own negative reporting.....(cont.)

Oh really? Listen you illiterate babblehead, your state (Kentucky) gets almost twice as many federal dollars than it pays in federal taxes.
I know that you trust your precious FAWX News. This is a blurb on point:
Kentucky
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes:$12,129
> Population: 4,339,367
> Pct. of U.S. population: 1.41%
> Amt. per capita:$13,198
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 1.77%
The federal government gave Kentucky more than $7,000 per person on direct payments, which included retirement and disability benefits, unemployment benefits and student assistance — all large programs. Medicare benefits accounted for nearly 57% of such payments. This was partially due to the high amount of government money going toward prescription drug coverage in the state —$5.46 billion in 2010. Kentucky received almost $1.5 billion more for prescription drug coverage than California, a state with almost nine times its population.

She is NOT in Kentucky. She was not a cabinet secretary, and there is no other position she could have held with the state where she supervised 200 people, thirty of them attorneys. Let's get real here. What attorney would let that lunatic supervise him or her. They'd have had her locked out of the building in about thirty seconds flat - right after the first memo she circulated.;-)

Quote from USMail:
It's all yours, hon. But your "retirement" is being subsidized by local and state governments. Your retirement deduction was matched to some degree by American taxpayers.
Nice try! REWBA is not the one complaining about the President.

LOL! Is that what that fraud said?
It's against the law and the Code of Ethics to have a lay person supervising attorneys.
