Poll: 69% think media promotes favorite candidate; Obama benefits most

The Rasmussen Reports website reported yesterday the results of a poll showing that most people think members of the media slant stories to help a favored candidate. And most people believe Obama gets most of the love.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of voters think most reporters are trying to help Obama win versus 11% who believe they are trying to help his Republican opponent John McCain. Twenty-six percent (26%) say reporters offer unbiased coverage…

I have some items I would like to sell that 26% group.
And then,

Just last week a Rasmussen Reports survey found that 51% of voters believed reporters were trying to hurt McCain鈥檚 running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, with their news coverage.

After reviewing many of the claims regarding Palin’s policies, specifically the allegations about her so-called budget cuts, I can understand well this result.
As an aside, we may see a correction coming from a mainstream source soon…
