McCain’s Media Myth

Even after Barack Obama’s trip abroad, John McCain’s campaign continues to whine about the Media’s love affair with him.  It turns out this so called love affair is a myth perpetuated by the McCain camp.

The truth is out.  According to George Mason University’s Center for Media and Public Affairs, after monitoring the news coverage of the two candidates for six weeks, it turns out that Barack Obama’s media coverage was only 28% positive and 72% negative.  John McCain’s coverage was more evenly divided at 43% positive and 57% negative.

Just something to think about next time you hear John McCain’s people blaming the media.
