Politico: The Media Sure Are Biased Toward Obama, Aren't They?
8:40 AM, May 31, 2012 • By MARK HEMINGWAY
Politico's Jim Vandehei and Mike Allen have a story this morning that looks at media coverage of the candidates in the election thus far, "To GOP, blatant bias in vetting":
Go ahead and read the whole thing, which generously lets prominent Republicans air some pretty legitimate complaints. Good on Allen and Vandehei to state the obvious here, but I wouldn't wait around for the New York Times and Washington Post to be chastened into providing balanced coverage of the candidates. Or Politico for that matter, considering they just published a 2,300 word story on Mitt Romney and odd bit of 19th century folklore that the Mormon church explicitly rejects.
