Obama Gets Very Negative Media Coverage

A new Pew Research study finds President Obama has suffered the most "unrelentingly negative treatment" of all the presidential candidates.

"Though covered largely as president rather than a candidate, negative assessments of Obama have outweighed positive by a ratio of almost 4-1. Those assessments of the president have also been substantially more negative than positive every one of the 23 weeks studied. And in no week during these five months was more than 10% of the coverage about the president positive in tone."

Of the Republican candidates, Rick Perry "has received the most coverage and the most positive coverage from the news media of any GOP contender."
