The Media Loves Kerry? Who knew?

I'm shocked, just shocked!

Study finds press pro-Kerry

Sen. John Kerry has gotten the white-glove treatment from the press, garnering more praise from journalists than any other presidential candidate in the last quarter-century, according to a new analysis of almost 500 news stories released today by the Center for Media and Public Affairs.

"It's not just that John Kerry has gotten better press than President Bush before this election, he's gotten better press than anyone else since 1980. That's significant," said Bob Lichter, director of the D.C.-based nonpartisan research group.

"Kerry also got better press than anyone else in the days before the primaries as well," Mr. Lichter added.

In October alone, Mr. Kerry had a "record-breaking 77 percent positive press evaluations," compared with 34 percent positive for Mr. Bush, the study states.

And for what... Kerry is, by even his strongest supports admission, the weakest candidate any party has produced in decades. It is pure election manipulation.

Update: Oh Look, another example.

Even the Fox News Channel is guilty. Their guilt stems from their unwillingness to expose Kerry's record, his background and his biography. I believe Fox has decided to try to placate their detractors in the MSM. The MSM created the canard that Fox is tied to the GOP. In fact, many in the news media have claimed that Fox is the mouthpiece of the RNC, when in reality it is the MSM who are the mouthpiece of DNC. As Karl Marx once said, "Accuse others of what you do." And who better than the MSM to heed the words of the father of communism.

Have you seen this? Let's ee how long it takes for the main media to discuss this!!


"A former officer in the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps Reserve has built a case that Senator Kerry was other than honorably discharged from the Navy by 1975, The New York Sun has learned.

The "honorable discharge" on the Kerry Web site appears to be a Carter administration substitute for an original action expunged from Mr. Kerry's record, according to Mark Sullivan, who retired as a captain in the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps Reserve in 2003 after 33 years of service as a judge advocate. Mr. Sullivan served in the office of the Secretary of the Navy between 1975 and 1977."

I agree with what Jim wrote... (Below threshold)

I agree with what Jim wrote. I'm a FOX viewer but their move toward the Center Left is remarkable lately...I think it's Peter Churnin, a Kerry supporter, who is responsible (I don't have X-Ray vision, I'm just making a best guess here). Another thing, is that popular stations as is FOX would stand to take a tumble in viewer enjoyment and ratings if they were opinionated in one direction or another about any candidate and that candidate lost, so, I'm sure that FOX understands the risk of being the only station providing coverage for and about Republicans and is trying to be more inclusive of Democrats because of that. Perhaps they'll move back to common sense once Bush is re-elected, or so I hope and pray.

But, reading that FOX is "the mouthpiece of the RNC" is so untrue, especially since those saying that probably never watch FOX other than to criticize Hannity for an hour or so, and gripe about the few visits by Anne Coulter. To the contrary, FOX includes a LOT of Democrats, and a huge array of repeat liberals -- extremely liberal ones -- but is the only station that also includes Republicans, so the shock of even seeing/hearing Republicans on a station is too much for liberals, who are, by comparison, accustomed to seeing/hearing only Democrats/liberals. The other networks rarely include Republicans and definitely have no to little as to conservative hosts. I like FOX and wish they would bump Colmes, then I'd be happier. Oh, and stop it with the screaming Democrat females and Democrat lawyers who shout down anyone who "dares" to try to get a word in edgewise.

I believe it's Peter Chernin. Sorry.

Ah, yes, the CMPA. Fair and balanced.
