Pew: President Gets Election Eve Surge in Positive Press Coverage
Broadcasting and Cable ^ | 11/19/12 | John Eggerton

Posted on 11/20/2012 4:51:54 AM PST by AT7Saluki

President Barack Obama had more positive news coverage than he had gotten in months in the days just prior to the November election, but that was attributable to his improving race strategy rather than his prominence in the Superstorm Sandy coverage.

That is according to a new study from the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism, based on a content analysis of 660 news stories from 49 mainstream media outlets between Oct. 22 and Nov. 5.

According to the study, 37% of the "horserace" stories about the president in the last week of the campaign were positive, compared to 16% negative. That was a better favorable-to-unfavorable ratio than at any time in the previous two months.

And while the surge in positive coverage was not tied directly to the storm, Sandy did appear to reduce the attention on Gov. Romney, who generated 25% less coverage in the last week than did the president.

...

Coverage by Fox News and MSNBC became more politically polarized as the race drew to a close. In the final week, Fox's unfavorable coverage of Obama increased from 47% to 56%, while MSNBC's unfavorable coverage of Romney grew from 57% to 68%.

Yes, timely.

Wonder if they’re running out of things to write about. Their heads must spin with all the propaganda they have to peddle.

Obama received about 6M less votes (with massive fraud) this time around. That will haunt him no matter what PEW says.

During the storm the only thing he did was give out other peoples’ money. Anybody can do that.
However, that is how a politician is judged today. The more of other peoples’ money you give away, the better you are.

Yes, while he actively takes over our entire health care system, turning it into a mega data mining system for control.

I think that something as mundane as ‘numbers’ are really incidental to “O”.

I am sure he is too stupid to comprehend and way too self absorbed to care about the mechanics of winning an election in this country, like say a Romney or some other real politician.

The FIX has been in for “O” from a very long time ago. HE was never meant to trouble himself about things like numbers, etc. HE was just supposed to appear at photo op’s and regurgitate a pre programmed message.... a performance just barely within his capabilities. The further along he goes in his 'career' the more embarassingly obvious this becomes!

Anyway, I am sure he couldn't answer the most banal questions about the mechanism of his ‘re election’ campaign, if his life depended on it.

He could are less, because all he needs to do is get dressed up and go to the party! PERIOD

I didn’t believe he got 6 million less votes. My gut says that those votes were taken out of play because most favored Romney and it was easier to not count them and say Obama got less then to count them then try to create new votes for Obama.

Even the National Geographic Channel got in on the scam. They ran a highly advertized and promoted “documentary”,very favorable favorable to Obama about the killing of Bin Laden on Sunday night, just two days before the election.

The operative word in “The Corrupt Liberal Media” is “Corrupt”

Liberalism has killed journalism

.
Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election. The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office. Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.
Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?
Massive voter fraud.

There are massive reports of criminal activity
(not mischief, not shenanigans, as many term the fraud- but CRIMINAL ACTIVITY) going on all over the U.S during the presidential election.
Reports of machines changing votes from Romney to Obama, eyewitness reports of Republican poll watchers who observed busloads of non-English speaking Somalians in Ohio being instructed to vote Obama- the list is endless.

Romney lost because of this, not any other reason.
Nobody could have won against the fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama Machine.

The evidence is overwhelming!
