This just in: The media hates Bush.

President Bush just can’t win with the broadcast networks.

More than two-thirds of the news stories on ABC, NBC and CBS covering the first 100 days of Mr. Bush’s second term were negative, according to an analysis released today by the District-based Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA).

It’s actually a slight improvement: During the first 100 days of his initial term in office, the coverage was 71 percent negative, according to a similar CMPA study conducted in 2001.

In comparison, President Clinton’s first-term news coverage was 59 percent negative in 1993.

This isn’t news to anyone who’s honestly looked at the media, and to those who think the big 3 networks play things straight down the middle this won’t change their preset notions. But it is one more straw on the camel’s back.
