GOP Dominates Stimulus Debate 2:1 on Cable News: Think Progress

by matttbastard

Oh, that liberal media!

Yes, kids, this really is what they call “balance” in corporate media newspeak. We should all be thankful that cable news programming directors are encouraging such a stimulating (snerk) debate as the president attempts to unshit the bed that (too many years) of GOP rule and freemarket orthodoxy has left soiled beyond recognition.

As Digby put it, “If I didn’t follow politics closely, I would think these people [Republicans] are the ones who won the election.”

  1. This kind of media content analysis can often be misleading. While the sheer number of appearances clearly favours the Republicans, there are several key variables left out.

    First, how long was each appearance?

    Furthermore, what “spin” was given to the appearance? How were the interviews or appearances portrayed? Was there follow up analysis?

    I’d be curious to see a more in-depth content analysis.
