Networks Hype Rising Gas Prices 4 Times More for Bush, Than keny

The stupids believe it too, the liberal media will lead the stupids to vote for the kenyan again, just watch.


Rising gas prices used to be big news, but not so these days. Although the national average climbed to $3.56 on Feb. 20, setting a February record after going up nearly a month straight, there was far less coverage than in 2008. Broadcast networks repeatedly covered the rise under the Bush presidency. Gas prices bounced around eventually reaching $3.56-a-gallon on April 24, 2008.

The Business and Media Institute analyzed broadcast network news references to gas or fuel prices between Jan. 20 and Feb. 20, 2012 and from March 24 and April 24, 2008. BMI found that in the 2008 period there were more than 4 times as many gas prices stories, news briefs or news headlines on ABC, CBS and NBC as there were in 2012 (97 to 21).

Coverage during the time periods differed not only in quantity, but in tone as well. During Bush’s tenure, gas prices were a huge economic threat and cause of suffering.

Networks have a new policy about political reporting. They only report GOOD News.

Let's see...

Lamestream Media doing anything that might make B-HO look bad?

Nope, not going to happen much, if at all.
