Ah ha! Here’s proof that the mainstream media is so in the Kool-Aid pitcher for Barack Obama that it’s not funny. Or not true.
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.
Now the meme will be that we should all feel sorry for President Obama and how tough a slog he has to beat Mitt Romney, so we should all let up on him.
