I'm not going to say much here, but I think this is absolutely ridiculous. We all seem to understand that Fox News is pretty conservative, MSNBC is to the left, and CNN was supposed to be somewhere in the middle, but lately it seems that CNN is hammering us with more anti-Romney reporting than anti-Obama articles. I haven't quantified this yet (maybe I will start a count), but the following example seems to show exactly what I'm talking about: http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/30/politics/romney-unicorn/index.html?hpt=hp_c1
This joke of a story made the front page (click image for pop-up view):
It's called rhetoric. It's the continuous broadcasting of an idea to sway an opinion. I harp on this constantly. If CNN constantly displays negative Romney headlines and articles, without even reading the articles, the population's opinion will slowly change. I don't doubt this is happening. Whether it's an "opinion" piece, a headline, or a not-so-outward title like the image above, CNN is laying on the negative themes on pretty thick. It doesn't have to explicitly say "Mitt Romney is bad," but the negative association is there. From headlines like "Mitt's Texas-Sized Problem" to "Why Romney Can't Get the Latino Vote," it seems CNN is falling to the way of MSNBC. Again, if I have time, I will start a count.
What do you think? Have you noticed this? Or am I way off base? It's not a scientific analysis; just my opinion. I'd love to hear some opinions on this.
