Media Coverage and the Stim Bill: Is it Fair?

Ad Feedback

President Obama's economic stimulus plan has been a main talking point since he took the oath of office last month.

The Business and Media Institute analyzed coverage of the bill on evening newscasts of three major networks.

The group says mainstream media have helped promote the biggest spending bill in history by interviewing stimulus supporters twice as often as opponents.

The study also shows less than 2 percent of the news stories addressed how Obama and Congress intended to pay for the stimulus.

CBN News spoke with Dan Gainor of the group about its study. Click play for his comments.
