MRC Grinds Out Another Dubious Piece of 'Media Research'
Topic: Media Research Center

As if designed to complement our recent report on its dubious "media research," the Media Research Center came out with a new study pushing more of said research. Rich Noyes declared:

Media Research Center analysts reviewed the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news programs from January 1 through July 31 and found 62 “conservative” labels for Republican candidates or those talked about as potential candidates. A check of the same broadcasts for the same time period in 2007 found a paltry three “liberal” labels for the Democrats running that year, a greater than 20-to-1 disparity.

As per usual, the MRC limited its scope to only the networks, making no effort to analyze cable news.

Noyes concludes by asserting that President Obama is "the most liberal President in American history," but he did not back up that claim or explain how he determined it to be so.

That's the kind of biased thinking that makes most people realize that the MRC's "media research" isn't about actual research.
