    Condemning Republicans, Cheering Democrats: The Media’s Biased 2016 Convention Coverage


    With both the Republican and Democratic conventions now concluded, it’s time to judge the news media on how fairly they covered the two parties. Media Research Center analysts looked at various aspects of coverage, all of which demonstrate that journalists obviously favored the Democratic gathering.

    By a 12-to-1 margin, journalists spent far more time deriding the Republican convention for its negativity, even as their reactions to Democratic speakers were consistently positive and often enthusiastic. Cable news had its own unique biases: MSNBC carved out time on each night of the GOP convention for interviews with top Democratic officials, but — despite promises to the contrary — aired no such interviews with Republicans during the Democratic convention. Meanwhile, CNN devoted more than an hour of airtime during the Democratic convention to airing 18 party-produced videos, but only included three such videos during the GOP convention.


    ■ Double standard on convention videos:
    ■ Double standard on giving free airtime to the opposition:
    ■ Double standard on complaining about negative rhetoric:
    ■ Gushing over Democratic speeches while panning the GOP:

    Every four years, the party conventions give the establishment news media a chance to provide even-handed coverage of the two parties. Once again, unfortunately, the networks have shown their obvious bias in favor of the liberals that rule the Democratic Party.

    The media has a strong liberal bias because of liberal intolerance.

    Imagine the howls of racism followed by threats of boycotts if a network hired a comedian for a late night talk show, a comedian who really laid into Obama.

    It is a given that the MSM will cheer on 'their' candidate, and throw everything they have at the Republican. Especially when it is D.J. Trump.
