Media bias part LXVIII

This is completely heinous -- a nonpartisan study out of George Mason U.'s Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) shows how deep in the tank for Kerry the networks have been: he has received the MOST FAVORABLE post-Labor Day press of any presidential candidate since the CMPA started tracking network news coverage of presidential campaigns in 1980.

The negative coverage of Bush is the worst of any Republican presidential nominee other than President Reagan in 1984. In other words, the press fights HARD to turn Republican presidents out of office. And the press hatred for Reagan merely reinforces how consistently dead wrong the press has been on major international issues, both 20 years ago and today. No wonder journalists are ranked lower than pond scum and lawyers on opinion surveys querying about the favorability of various professions.
