MSNBC Hates Romney Even More Than Fox News Hates Obama

 

The Pew Research Center is out with a new report today looking at media coverage of the presidential campaign since this summer's conventions. It's got plenty of worthwhile tidbits and newsy nuggets, but the one that jumped out at us right away was this snapshot of just how segmented and partisan (and negative) cable news has been this election cycle:

The study ... reveals the degree to which the two cable channels that have built themselves around ideological programming, MSNBC and Fox, stand out from other mainstream media outlets. And MSNBC stands out the most. On that channel, 71% of the segments studied about Romney were negative in nature, compared with just 3% that were positive-a ratio of roughly 23-to-1. On Fox, 46% of the segments about Obama were negative, compared with 6% that were positive-a ratio of about 8-to-1 negative. These made them unusual among channels or outlets that identified themselves as news organizations.

And for you visual learners:

The lack of a news media is one of the BIG reasons we are in the mess we're in. The networks, in their own way are even worse than either of the above mentioned, for they are perceived by some to have credibility, and they have little.
Do you think any of them will go beyond the superficial on Benghazi gate and the, have to be related Petaeus scandal. Probably the story of the century there, but it will go largely unreported by the mainstream media, even Fox.

Why are you convinced that the two (Benghazi and Petraeus) are related?

Anyway, my only thought on the topic at hand is that anyone who solely watches one news source is bound to live in a cocoon that will lead them to be shocked by reality at times.

The real story when it comes to news-media corporations is that information is concentrated into the hands of six major corporations. These corporations which have profit as their #1 motive will dictate how news is packaged and given to you.

And we all know how evil it is to have profits as a #1 goal.

When you make a cost-benefit analysis and choose to put equality, the environment, the health of the worker, and a slew of other things on the back burner than yeah. It can get pretty evil.
