The Washington-based Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism found that “positive stories about Obama (29%) outnumbered negative ones (19%) by 10 points in the week leading up to the voting” on Nov. 6.

The survey of 59 news outlets found that Romney got considerably more negative coverage, both at the end of the campaign and in the period dating back to the nominating conventions, beginning in late August.

    The coverage was that He stuck his own foot in his mouth more than once, showing his true colors and what he really stood for in opposition to what he was saying and in the end costing him what he so dearly wanted to posess.The white house and this country.Just another notch in a billionaires belt.

    nobody's comments were dumber than 0's, nobody is less competent than he. The tragedy of this country is that with the massive support from the media and entertainment, even the ass - the embodiment of your party - would have had pretty good chances.

    BTW, could you explain me what exactly was 0's role in "getting" UBL? No Demunist ever was able to answer.

    is that what Al-Obama's gang is feeding you over there, in Canada? Or "Canada" is just a code name for a ceartain PR dept of his huge campaign tumor?

    Hmmm- I thought the racist Obama haters were calling the president a Socialist or a Communist...
    can't be a Facist and a Socialist at the same time- get your story straight, or just admit you hate smart, hardworking black people who are a success and you, well you sit around and whine, blame and complain about smart, successful, hardworking black people.


    sigh....


    PEACE

    "smart, successful, hardworking black people" are against your lazy, careless and totally unskilled freeloader 0. Moreover, those people are hated among the 0's base. Just remember how your scum has been treating Justice Thomas, Condi Rice, Thom Sowell, Allen West, etc.

    hmmmm- well I have lots of clients who pay me A LOT of $ for being an unskilled freeloader who has a masters degree and an architecture license.
    i guess it depends on your definition of unskilled?

    Btw- I do not think any sane person would call a guy who worked hard enough and was smart enough to be pressident a zero- you might want to look in the mirror?
    You seem really bitter.....
    And it will kill you someday- calm down.

    Peace and Blessed Advent.

    Romney got nothing but negative from the news media.
    Just think if the news had reported in a non-bias way?
    People would know a lot more about Obama and his failures.

    But that was to be expected. The media outlets are politically liberal and therefore they are going to spin the news to suit their needs. It's the public's responsibility to research and demand unbiased information and not enough people are doing that. The result is the system slips further and further away.

    it was ALWAYS overly negative. if it had been halfway equitable, Romney would be President now, and would be awaiting a second term now.

    Hell no, BUT the coverage of Romney being overly negative toward this nation and Obama was. THAT was his fault. Infact, Cluster Faux and Sodahead cons are still declaring Romney the winner. LMAO The best part is even with Rove paying to have Romney win still backfired on him....but I am sure Rove has "outsourced" Romney's money by now.

    Faux news may have given Mr. 47% a 52% image. But most Americans
    get their news from multiple sources.

    The truth is not negative. The election results were positive.
