"A study of daily news coverage from more than 11,500 media outlets doesn't support claims that the media favors President Barack Obama. Reports reflecting negatively on Obama have outweighed positive ones 4 to 1; negative coverage of Obama dominated even during the week that Osama bin Laden was killed. Politico's Keach Hagey notes that "the top four most favorably covered candidates … were all tea party favorites" — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and businessman Herman Cain."

The same moneyed interests that find Obama threatening, own the media and although it's hard to determine what's covered, they have a powerful say in the emphasis and interpretation of that coverage.

Liberal media is somewhere between illusion and delusion. The middle class doesn't own media outlets. The working class absolutely doesn't.
