WHERE IS THE LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS IN ELECTION 2012 CAMPAIGN?
Republican Voices far outnumber Democrat Voices
The 4th Estate Project (4thestate.net), has released a new infographic showing that coverage of the 2012 presidential election is biased toward Republicans, even in outlets traditionally considered part of the “liberal media.” [...]
The infographic released today by The 4th Estate indicates that this conservative strategy is succeeding. “Our data clearly shows that if the mainstream media does have a liberal bias, that bias isn’t manifesting itself in the current campaign,” says Max Krieg, a 4th Estate Strategic Media Analyst. “In fact, the data shows that Republicans are quoted 44% more than Democrats, and the coverage of Mitt Romney is significantly less negative than coverage of Barack Obama.”
“Our technology can measure biases across different topics, media outlets, and journalists,” says Michael Howe, The 4th Estate’s Chief Technology Officer. “The 4th Estate is the first system to be able to methodically and quantitatively track, monitor, and measure in real-time the key data points in this debate, specifically the quantitative measurement of quotes (what The 4 th Estate refers to as “VoiceShare”) and the sentiment of these quotes attributed to individuals and affiliate groups.”
