I’ve been picking on FOX News quite a bit lately, as the blatant lies the network airs continue to grow with each passing day, but their liberal counterpart MSNBC isn’t really any better.
A recent study by Pew Research examined the coverage of 2012 election candidates for positive and negative connotations to each candidate. Unsurprisingly, FOX News had many more negative things to say about Obama, while MSNBC painted Romney in a darker light.
It is worth noting though, that while both platforms are despicable at times and carry heavy, heavy bias, they are essentially equal in their leanings, just in opposite directions. And sadly, and it truly pains me to say this, FOX News actually IS slightly more “fair and balanced” than MSNBC in their political coverage.
So you folks who point fingers at the “other side” for carrying such an unfair and unreasonable media bias should take a look in the mirror.
