The Real Evil Empire, MSNBC?

The Left likes to demonize Fox News as biased and partisan. But MSNBC’s coverage of Mitt Romney has been far more negative than Fox’s coverage of Obama, Politico reports:

From August 27 through October 21, 71 percent of MSNBC’s coverage of Mitt Romney this year was negative, far outperforming Fox News’s negative coverage of President Barack Obama, which came in at 47 percent, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center’s project for Excellence in Journalism. The negative-to-positive ratio on MSNBC was roughly 23-to-1; the negative-to-positive ratio on Fox News was 8-to-1.

Liberals who love to hate on Fox should look to their network-news home first.
