MSNBC's Bias Against Mitt Romney Was Astonishing

Brett LoGiurato
Nov. 19, 2012, 5:46 PM

No one really expects MSNBC's coverage to put a positive spin on Republicans — but in the final week of the 2012 presidential campaign, the network's coverage toward presidential nominee Mitt Romney skewed entirely negative.

According to a new study by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism, MSNBC provided no "positive" coverage of Romney during the campaign's final week.

Here's a look at the chart of polarization:

By comparison, 57 percent of MSNBC's coverage toward Romney was negative during the first three weeks of October — and it did provide at least some positive coverage. Throughout the entirety of the campaign, the network's coverage was 68% negative. The rest of the combined news media's coverage of Romney, Pew found, was only 33 percent negative.

Pew found that Fox News became similarly biased during the campaign's final week — though it was not as polarized as MSNBC. Only 5 percent of its Obama coverage was positive, while 56 percent was negative. This differed from the rest of the news media, which provided more positive coverage of the president during the Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts and as polls pointed to a definitive Obama victory.

Republicans may never win again

When every department of this COMMUNIST government is spending taxpayer money to buy support for Democrats and every media outlet is beating the drum against you, it's a steep road.

I'm still depressed about Obama being re-elected. Four more years of Anti-American propaganda from every angle.

I understand now why some people are saying save the history books of a few years ago, at some point, the history of the country's founding dead, White men will be erased to make way for a diverse and inclusive American founding and how it was the minorities who actually discovered, built the country and instilled the ideas of freedom and liberty in our constitution.(Which they'll eventually say is obsolete)

You just wait.

What else would you expect from a bunch of “angry old white guys” like Chrissie Matthews and Special Ed Schultz?

Astonishing? Hardly.
Typical crap from the media? Naturally.

They can’t be referred to as journalists, and their network has to lose any classificatiion as a news provider. We can’t wait for the culture to slowly correct itself. We have to lead by naming them what they are.

we lost ecause of massive fraud and corruption.
we lost because a media cannot help itself being biased.
we lost because we have many idiots in this country who are just to dumb and just watch their local news and then think they have been told the truth and trust me I meet those people every day and every day they say to me” are you sure , I saw the news last night and they never mentioned that?”

We lost because the media looks at itself as a ruling class and thinks we should not know the truth.

Looking at those stats on FOX and MSNBC makes me sick.
I want the truth, I want to know what is going on, I don;t want their bias, their crap, their lies and I want to know that the news is the news.

We don;t even know where obama was during Libya.
what did he do
did he give the stand down order.
If not then who did.
If he did then why?
Why did he lie

For crying ut loud, it;s bene two months over now and we still have no idea if obama went to sleep during the attacks or where he was or what he did.

I blame the GOP for not calling the media out, name names , makes AD’s, and inform the public ourselves .
The GOP has not even asked where was obama , did he watch the attacks?

My son wants marine recon or Navy seals, well like hell will he when obama is the President anda republican party which does not question the media or the left or even mention social issues because most are cowards

I want to know why our side can;t even name names in the media and use examples.
Why did they not go after Crowley for her bias for the world to see in the debate.

I;m just sick of the media , they are the biggest enemy we have right now.
I’m sick of the GOP who cannot go after the media and call these corrupt turds out.

Do you know we still have no idea where obama was during the Libya attack, or if he watched it or even if he went to sleep during the attack.

The GOP has not asked this nor has the media and the elft will do anything , even massive fraud because they know our side does not question and the media covers for them

The GOP elite never should have foisted Romney on us as the nominee.

agreed but idiots watch their local news, infact there are millions which do this, CBS, NBC, ABC

They are the biggest problems as millions watch their crap from crap like the view to the local news.

If the GOP cannot get balls to evengo after these 3 networks then we might as well get pitch forks and march to DC ourselves and prod the cowards out

"The GOP elite never should have foisted Romney on us as the nominee. "

It would not have mattered who.

They have already begun the attacks to destroy Rubio.

Yes, our Republican leadership has been bought and paid for, whether with money, blackmail or coercion. Don't know which, don't care. We conservatives are in survival mode with the odds stacked against us. But America has been there before. In the Revolutionary War, almost half the population was on the British side. The Civil War divided family members against family members. In World War II, we were flanked on two sides, out-manned, out-gunned, and taken by surprise. Today, the enemy is hidden among us, using the confusion of well-intended people as their camouflage, and every form of deceit.

I don't know what all we will do, but one step at a time. Speak the truth to power, set a good example, and of course, PRAY.

We desperately need government reform. What can we do today to bring that about? We need to shame the media, the political traitors, the unions, and anyone who helped cheat this election away. Name it, make them own it to their undying shame.

If Boehner isn't our voice, then who speaks for us? Listen to them and help them to be heard by others.

The Left thinks they have won the Republic away from us. We can make that a very temporary victory. Mexico was under Marxism for six years before the Cristeros won their revolt. Are we more like the Cristeros, or the Russians, who were ground under Soviet boot for 70 years?

Yes, this election was lost due to massive voter fraud.

.
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.
http://www.ObamaVoterFraud.com/

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!

and how many freepers are still in denial, how many will still not look at your hard work and go over the facts of this election?

Imagine if every freeper mailed Bohner, Cantor etc, hundreds of calls in one day to one person demanding that he do something about this.

Imagine every freeper mailing a network and demand they do their job, yes we woudl not have seen this crap we have just seen and will see.

It must be so easy for some to ignore the facts of this election and keep repeating the elitist party GOP and the media’s talking points “move on”, “ lets reach out” “ we did nto get enough votes”

No we would have won if we had our side had balls and people got on their phones and e-mail.

In two years we wil lose, two more years later we will lose and still we’ll get some saying reach out.
Reach out, how about this admin now telling illegals how to get welfare and handouts on their website.

Sooner or later they would have to listen.

You are living in the New Soviet Union, comrade. The Media are the propaganda organs (dicks) of the American Communist Party (AKA Democrats). Enjoy your socialist existence!

We seem to be stuck in this mode of pointing out problems. We need to move beyond that. We have to start asking “Why?”. And we have to stop accepting superficial answers.
“Why does MSNBC support the Democrats? Because they’re liberals.”
We need a deeper understanding.

“Understand yourself and understand your opponents, and in one hundred battles, you will not be defeated”

We were just defeated. It must be because we do not understand ourselves, our opponent or both.
