AIM's Aronoff Misleads on CMPA
Topic: Accuracy in Media

In a Nov. 3 Accuracy in Media column touting the "evidence of bias in favor of Barack Obama," Roger Aronoff describes the Center for Media and Public Affairs, which produced a study supporting Aronoff's contention, as a group that is not "considered in any way to have conservative leanings." In fact, as we've detailed, the CMPA is a conservative-leaning group.

Curiously, Aronoff doesn't cite the one thing that might have supported his contention about the CMPA: its study from July finding that ABC, NBC and CBS were tougher on Obama than on Republican John McCain during the first six weeks fo the general election campaign. But then, that would have undercut the premise of his column (not to mention the entire raison d'etre of AIM).
