    A startling admission followed by some lame and laughable excuses.

    Why McCain is getting hosed in the press

    EXCERPT

    Then along came a study — funded by the prestigious Pew Research Center, no less — suggesting at first blush, at least, that they may be on to something.

    The Project for Excellence in Journalism’s researchers found that John McCain, over the six weeks since the Republican convention, got four times as many negative stories as positive ones. The study found six out of 10 McCain stories were negative.

    What’s more, Obama had more than twice as many positive stories (36 percent) as McCain — and just half the percentage of negative (29 percent).

    You call that balanced?

    They were simply reporting the truth. Obama is the superior candidate.

    I agree if you favor socialism! Otherwise Obama is the worst candidate I've seen in my life time.

    Because McCain the Maverick , Morphed into Bush the incompetent

    He used to be known for his straight talk express but once he hitched his wagon to bush and right wing religious types, he threw the press under the bus, they duly noted it and when you do not have access usually you are not going to get a story to go your way.

    He only has himself to blame, the press were willing and waiting for the maverick to reappear, but somehow he morphed into a incompetent Bush along the way.

    And the media is in the tank for him.

    As the article verifies, any newsie that takes even a semi-critical look at their coverage, has to admit the media bias for Obama...

    while at the same time desperately trying to justify it.

    In vain.
