Bush Got Most and Less Negative Coverage

A new study from the Project for Excellence in Journalism found that President Bush received most of the media’s campaign coverage in recent months, though the tone of coverage on the president’s character has been largely negative by a margin of three to one. The media’s assessment of Kerry has been negative by a margin of five to one.

The study also found that "journalists were almost as likely as the campaigns to be the source asserting these character traits about the candidates" and that "more than four in ten character assertions were made with no evidence cited to back them up."
