Media Watchdog? Not So Much

Here’s a little ditty about how the media covers things that they think will benefit their president and his party, and how they don’t cover things that won’t.

Mainstream media stories and coverage on two news issues. You decide if there’s a bias or not.

Chris Christie/GW Bridge scandal: Since Wednesday night, NBC included six reports over 14 minutes and 14 seconds. CBS devoted five reports over 12 minutes and 27 seconds. ABC managed 4 stories over seven minutes and 47 seconds.

As a comparison over the last six months, NBC featured a scant five seconds on updating the IRS story. CBS responded with a minute and 41 seconds. ABC produced a meager 22 seconds.
