Elaborating on the obvious

Conservative Group Finds Networks Positive on Obama | The Trail | "It's no secret that Barack Obama has gotten awfully good coverage from the media in this campaign, and plenty of it.

Now the conservative Media Research Center says the imbalance is far greater than anyone imagined.

The advocacy group, which lives to complain about liberal bias, has studied the coverage on the network evening newscasts from May 2000 (the first mention of the senator from Illinois) through the end of the Democratic primaries in June. Overall, the group says, 34 percent of the stories about Obama were positive and 5 percent negative. The rest were characterized as neutral."

This campaign has been a huge embarrassment to the major media, but they don't seem to care. They have lost credibility, circulation, and money, but they keep on rooting for The One even as the electorate seems to be increasingly skeptical about him.
