Fair and balanced? More than two-thirds of stories about Obama and Romney are negative

Why the media dislike Barack Obama and Mitt Romney

From the piece: Maybe the conservative critics are right: A whopping 71 percent of the media narrative about Mitt Romney has been negative, a new study says

But wait: the same report says 72 percent of the media treatment of President Obama has been negative as well.

Apparently, journalists don’t think much of either guy.

But there’s an equally striking finding in the Project for Excellence in Journalism study: the campaigns are having increasing success at circumventing the mainstream media.
