THE APEX OF BIAS

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

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.
