Bias In The Morning?

By Chris Ariens 

The AP reports that a conservative watchdog group has found the network morning news shows have spent “considerably more time this year on Democrats running for president than on Republicans.”

According to the Media Research Center, “through July 31, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning news shows devoted 284 campaign segments to Democratic candidates and 152 to Republicans. Another 81 stories discussed both parties or a possible independent run by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.”

Network execs reject the notion. The story says producers have a “considerably harder time getting Republican candidates to appear on their shows.”
