Stimulus Coverage Shows Media Bias

Ad Feedback

Recent numbers show the economic stimulus bill has had strong support in the mainstream media, despite controversy surrounding its $787 billion price tag.

Since the legislation was signed last year, ABC, CBS and NBC all covered stimulus supporters by nearly a three to one margin over critics.

Nearly half of the reports by these networks also included zero criticism of the bill.

Conservative groups like the Business and Media Institute-- which conducted the study-- say this proves there is a clear bias when it comes to reports on legislation from the Obama administration.

CBN News spoke with Dan Gainor of the Business and Media Institute about this and how it impacts approval of President Obama's policies.
