For Every Minute Of Airtime Fox News Gave Obama Speech, Romney Got Seven.
Most everyone already knows that MSM is biased to one side or another however there are a small percentage of people that believe the Foxes mantra of
fair and balanced. This is a continuation of a thread from Nov 2. A few people had even touted the motto. Below is a graph demonstrating the amount of
coverage they gave the two main candidates.
MSNBC is competing for the title of unbalanced and it looks like CNN is pulling for Romney. I still think CNN is the least biased.
Fox News capped off election season 2012 by ignoring President Obama's late-night campaign speech in Des Moines, Iowa -- his last as a candidate
-- to rerun an earlier broadcast of Bill O'Reilly's show. The decision to not cover Obama's last speech was not surprising considering the network has
treated its airtime as an extension of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's communications efforts.
On Monday, the day before Election Day, Fox covered every single Romney speech save the last for a total airtime of 59 minutes. Fox News even kicked
off its morning election coverage with Romney's speech in Orlando, Florida -- airing it for the entire 26 minutes.
By contrast, Fox covered only the first Obama speech in Madison, Wisconsin on Monday -- and went back to regular coverage after just eight minutes.
Anchor Jenna Lee then directed viewers to head to FoxNews.com to watch the rest.
It isn’t that I believe that any of the stations are fair there issue to me is that one station perpetrates the lie that they are not. They go as
far as to say they are the only ones bringing you the truth on issues but cannot even be honest about their coverage.
In the five days leading up to Election Day, Fox has given Romney speeches unprecedented coverage -- a near four and a half total hours. Obama
speeches, meanwhile, have been aired for just 35 minutes total.
IMHO Republican Campaign Headquarters (i.e. FOX News) has been busy.
