THE APEX OF BIAS
Yes, the mainstream media misbehaved during the presidential election, and in “historical” proportions, says Media Research Center research director and Fox News contributor Rich Noyes. Let him count the ways.
“Here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal President Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney,” Mr. Noyes says.
The biased gaffe patrol hammered Mr. Romney, unfairly jumping on inconsequential mistakes — or even invented controversies. The secretly recorded “47 percent” video was hyped “like a sensational sex scandal.”
The press also pounded Mr. Romney with partisan fact checking and secondguessed debate moderators, while some of those moderators “repeatedly interrupted the Republican candidate and larded the discussion with a predominantly liberal agenda,” Mr. Noyes observes.
