MSNBC more negative toward Romney than Fox toward Obama

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2012 at 12:15 PM

As most every American with a television knows, when it comes to elections, major network news slants either conservative or liberal. Fox is undoubtedly Republican and MSNBC undoubtedly Democrat. But just how extreme are each? The findings of a recent Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism might shock you.


About 71 percent of MSNBC's coverage of the Romney's campaign was negative, while 46 percent of Fox's coverage of the Obama campaign was negative. According to Mediabistro:

They found that when it came to coverage of President Obama, a clear plurality of segments on Fox News were negative in tone, while a clear plurality of segments on MSNBC were positive. CNN was split almost down the middle. When it came to coverage of Mitt Romney, an overwhelming majority of segments on MSNBC were negative while a plurality on Fox News were positive.

That's why I rely on my psychic Hortencia for unbiased campaign news.
