Did the Math

The Media Research Center has done the math on the media’s coverage of Senator Obama versus its coverage of Senator McCain.

The Big Three broadcast networks lavished an incredible amount of attention on Barack Obama’s tour of the Middle East and Europe last week. Compared to a very similar trip by John McCain last March, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts gave Obama more than ten times the coverage — 92 minutes for the Democrat’s eight-day trip, compared to just eight and a half minutes for the Republican’s seven-day tour.
