Right-wing media such as Fox and Rush Limbaugh let their audiences down by telling them what they wanted to hear: Barack Obama was going to be swept out of office.
As Friedersdorf sees it, the “liberal” mainstream media did a better job of both predicting the election results and offering critiques of the strengths and weaknesses of both presidential candidates. Fox et al focused on Obama’s failings, and portrayed everything that happened in the last four years as another Obama failure.
People who watched CNN or one of the old big three networks, or read the New York Times, were probably not surprised by Tuesday’s vote, Friedersdorf says.
As the right sees it, the MSM won the election for Obama by failing to focus on his failings.
What do you think. As my teachers used to say, “Let’s hear from somebody who hasn’t already spoken.”
