Wednesday Night Video – The New York Times Catering to Conservatives
April 25, 2012 2 Comments
It’s amazing what happens when actual liberal voices appear in the media. Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks correctly chastises The New York Times for their most recent attempts criticize President Obama in a way specifically designed to please the conservatives. Uygur contrasts that with the actual facts, bringing up The Pew Research study that shows how Mitt Romney has been getting more than twice the positive coverage in the news than Obama. Positive coverage of Obama has actually been at 18%, and I’m willing to bet that most of that criticism has come from the right, as opposed to the left. If there is a liberal media, the New York Times ain’t it.
UYGUR: Mainstream media, in this case The New York Times, looks at itself and says “Oh no, we didn’t do the right-wing enough of a favor. We’re giving 2-1 positive coverage to Mitt Romney. Maybe it should be 3-1, maybe it should be 4-1. Right-wing, please don’t call us liberals!”
