It is hardly news but nonetheless we feel it should be documented.
As ratings of the Big Four (NBC, ABC, CBS, tax-supported NPR) continue to lose listeners and viewers, they are intent on doing anything they can to help Barack Obama get re-elected. This most often takes the form of spinning anything they can, such as a tiny increase in "new jobs", to make it look as good as possible for Obama and also presenting anything negative, even if not true, they can about Mitt Romney.
The highly respects (that's example of spin) Media Research Center recently analysed, as they regularly do, the major network reports on Romney's trip to the Middle East and Europe and reported:
MRC analysts examined all 21 ABC, CBS and NBC evening news stories about Romney's trip to London, Israel and Poland between July 25 and July 31. Virtually all of these stories (18, or 86%) emphasized Romney's "diplomatic blunders," from his "golden gaffe" at the Olympic games to "missteps" that offended the Palestinians.
But it turned out that what they called a "gaffe" was actually a very accurate assessment and as for the offending of the Palestinians, we would only ask: So what?
