During the entire first calendar year of his administration, Mr. Obama's mainstream media coverage was almost "perfectly balanced" — he rated 49 percent positive and 51 percent negative evaluations by sources and reporters.

Excuse me?

according to a study released...by the Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA).

So why should anyone believe that this organization recognizes bias when they see it?

Much of the Obama coverage was breathlessly positive, even melodramatic

All things considered, it still is.

Is the media finally seeing that the party is over, that it’s time to get to work? It may be to late for the media since they didn’t want to see what was really going on. I believe that the general public no longer trusts them.

Utter BS. They are still relentlessly promoting, covering for him , deliberately ignoring negative stories about him and his administration and reliably attacking conservatives and his critics.

If you want to see the definition of a biased WH reporter, check out Chuck Todd. Todd’s analysis often includes statements about what “we” need to do, including himself as part of the Obama team. If the day’s news is bad for the Obama WH, Chuck Todd looks like his puppy died. If the news is good for the Obama WH, Chuck Todd is visibly giddy.

Chuck Todd could be the poster boy for what’s wrong with the MSM.

From the article:

"His quest to secure the 2016 Olympics for Chicago failed in spectacular fashion," commented Fox News' Bret Baier in October.

Reporting the negative news should not count as a negative article...I suspect it did.

What should be pointed out and shouted from the rooftops from now on is that the media bears primary blame for foisting this travesty on the country with their criminally biased and irresponsible coverage of the 2008 election and of Zero’s ascendancy to the Oval Office.
This should be driven home relentlessly.They should be made to pay for it by having their credibility thoroughly discredited for a generation.

I detect a tinge of “yeah, we were biased, but that’s all better now” here. Sorry, folks. Credibility is as difficult to get back as virginity.

To the MSM, "negative" coverage about Obama are stories that claimed that Obama didn't go far enough.

Big Fat Lie! I believe it's over WHEN the media calls for his impeachment and/or imprisonment. Otherwise, they're still for him.

Just like the As-Seen-On-TV infomercials which make wild claims about a new product. “He will bring peace and prosperity and green to our planet. He will perform miracles and make our enemies love us.”

MSM acted as the producers of the OBamaRama infomercial and the Democratic party acted as the company selling ObamaRamas. At first people clamored to buy this new wonderful-can’t do without-Presidency but soon found out that it didn’t work like they promised and was way too expensive. Getting Conned leaves a bitter taste in people’s mouths. You can do most anything but don’t betray their trust.

Now people don’t want the MSM to make anymore infomercials and they won’t buy any products from the Democratic party for a long time,
