Media Bias Toward Kerry, Never Saw This Coming


Reuters has reported by a press watchdog that is affiliated with Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism said that 36 percent of stories about Bush were negative compared to 12 percent about Kerry.

Only 20 percent were positive toward Bush compared to 30 percent of stories about Kerry that were positive, according to the report by the Project for Excellence in Journalism

The three network nightly newscasts and public broadcaster PBS tended to be more negative than positive, while Fox News was twice as likely to be positive as negative.

All this help by the MSM and Kerry still couldn’t win. One really must wonder what election outcomes would be like if the MSM was actually fair in their reporting of the Party candidates. 24% more negative stories and 10 % less positive ones for GWB, and he still won by 3M votes and approximately 3% of the vote. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that we live in a 50-50 country. Even with the above referenced bias by the MSM they lost by 3%. Imagine the results without the media influence? The political races would not be close.
