weaselzippers;MSM Gives Christie Bridge Scandal 17 TIMES MORE COVERAGE In One Day Than IRS Scandal In 6 Months UPDATE: Now 44 Times As Much Coverage
Why yes, liberal media bias is a myth.
In less than 24 hours, the big three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service controversy. Since the story broke on Wednesday that aides to the New Jersey governor punished a local mayor’s lack of endorsement with a massive traffic jam, ABC, CBS and NBC have responded with 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage. Since July 1, these same networks managed a scant two minutes and eight seconds for the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.In contrast, journalists such as Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos pounced on the developing Christie story. The GMA host opened the program on Thursday by announcing, “Chris Christie in crisis. Calls at this hour for the feds to step in, investigate the explosive e-mails.”
Update: The media turns on its favorite pet RINO.
In less than 48 hours, ABC, CBS and NBC deluged viewers with coverage of Chris Christie’s traffic jam scandal, devoting a staggering 88 minutes to the story. In comparison, these same news outlets over the last six months have allowed a scant two minutes for the latest on Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service scandal. The disparity in less than two days is 44-to-one. [See a chart below.]From Wednesday through Friday morning, the latest on Christie’s Traffic-Gate led 11 out of 13 news programs. NBC produced the heaviest coverage, over 34 minutes. CBS followed close behind with more than 30 minutes. ABC came in third with just under 23 minutes.
Thank You Newsbusters and Zip.
Anybody else find it interesting that the WH chose this particular moment in time to FIRE CGI, the $643 Million Clowns who built Healthcare.gov, And Hire ANOTHER Co. with a similarly distinguished record of Fraud for Another $90 Million to fix the 1rst $643 Million Dollar rip off, . . . As their media lapdogs are positively frothing at the mouth to tear a piece off of a pet RINO?
Obamunist/MSM stunts like this are not coincidence.
