A visual analysis of television presidential campaign coverage from 1992 to 2004 suggests that the three television broadcast networks -- ABC, CBS and NBC -- favored Republicans in each election, according to two Indiana University professors in a new book.They don't regard this as some kind of "conspiracy," but rather a natural reaction to the drumbeat of "liberal bias" pouring forth from the right-wing media.
"We don't think this is journalists conspiring to favor Republicans. We think they're just so beat up and tired of being accused of a liberal bias that they unknowingly give Republicans the benefit in coverage," said Grabe, who also is a research associate in political science at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. "It's self-censorship that journalists might be imposing on themselves."Thanks for providing more data to support what the reality-based community knew already: Corporate-owned media skews right. Always has, always will.
The book is available on Amazon.
