A new study has once again confirmed the mainstream media and its attacks on Republicans. The Media Research Center’s analysis found that news outlets have given GOP candidates 87% negative press coverage. Surprisingly, Democrats received bad press 67% of the time. A review of ABC, NBC, and CBS newscasts found that Biden drew far less criticism than Trump did during the 2018 midterm elections. As the New York Post reports:

Trump accounted for 48% of all midterm campaign airtime on nightly newscasts in 2018, more than all the congressional and gubernatorial candidates combined, and it was mostly negative, according to the MRC.

In comparison, Biden coverage during the 2022 midterms has accounted for only 16% of the networks’ coverage. And while the president has received mostly negative coverage during the study’s time frame, it is on a far smaller scale than Trump did — seven negative comments made against Biden compared to 54 for Trump.

Overall, the study found that Biden and Democratic candidates drew 13 positive comments and 26 negative ones, or 67% negative.

The GOP, however, was hammered with 94 negative comments and only 14 positive statements, or 87% negative.

The study also found that three GOP candidates and one Democrat generated the worst press. Those included Republicans Herschel Walker of Georgia (U.S. Senate candidate), Mehmet Oz of Pennsylvania (U.S. Senate candidate), and Kari Lake of Arizona (gubernatorial candidate), while the sole Democrat with the worst press was John Fetterman of Pennsylvania, who is running for the U.S. Senate against Oz.

Unlike newspapers and magazines, broadcasters have affirmative statutory and regulatory obligations to serve the public in specific ways. Despite the philosophical complications and political tensions that this arrangement entails, the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld the public trustee basis of broadcast regulation as constitutional. Try using the licensed TV stations since they must broadcast “In The Public Interest” (i.e., no lies).
 
What is the public interest standard of the FCC? In exchange for obtaining a valuable license to operate a broadcast station using the public airwaves, each radio and television licensee is required by law to operate its station in the “public interest, convenience and necessity.” Generally, this means it must air programming that is responsive to the needs of the community. If you think lying to the public is in the public interest; that would make you the Village Idiot.

he Main stream crew is starting to panic. They are beginning to realize that come the day after election day the party will be over and they will be thrown under the bus by their elite backers. The Democrats won’t want them and the Republicans wont need them.
