The androgynous half of the Klintoon Krime Kartel, is dominating the news, but it’s largely due to the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy™ running negative segments on conservative talk radio. Riigggghhhhhtttttt.

Clinton Dominates Campaign News

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has dominated news coverage of the 2008 White House race, partly due to negative segments about her on conservative talk radio, according to a new study released on Monday.

Absolutely, and with all the hit pieces from those evil Rethuglican journalists like this one: Hillary’s Big Bash, I’m not surprised.

Clinton was the main subject of 17 percent of stories during the first five months of this year, almost twice as much coverage as the leading Republican candidate, Rudy Giuliani, who had 9 percent, the study found.

So the question really is, exactly who decides what stories go into the media maelstrom? What with all her appearances and puff-piece articles from the fawning journaljizmers, I would be surprised if she didn’t dominate election coverage.

The tone of coverage for the two during that period was about equal — roughly 37 percent of stories were negative while 27 percent were positive, according to the study by the Project for Excellence in Journalism and Harvard University’s Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy.

Now we’re getting somewhere. Hillary’s negative ratings, in other words, voters clearly committed against her is at about 46% putting her at the top of heap on both sides of the aisle. Here we have only slightly over a third of the articles about her that were characterized as ‘negative’, but from my own informal research the negative material is primarily from her Democratic rivals playing to the Loony Left. The Dead Stream Media studiously ignores talk-radio except when they can pile on and attack the host, not the story itself. See: Rush Phony Soldier Brouhaha.

The study was based on the election coverage of 48 different media outlets, covering online, radio, television, and newspapers. A story was categorized as having a positive or negative tone if two-thirds of its assertions were explicitly in one direction.

You know we can in fact, read out here in the blogospheric community. I’ve read literally hundreds of campaign coverage articles and I can say without reservation that very few stories are balanced anywhere near what you’re alleging here. Using “tone” is rather a subjective measure of an article and entirely based on the perception and ideology of the individual reader or listener.

Conservative radio show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh have criticized Clinton for years, from her days as the first lady in the 1990s to New York senator and now candidate for the November 2008 presidential election. The review found that 86 percent of their segments on her were negative.

No Shit Sherlock? And exactly how much did you spend on that study? Rush, Hannity, Beck and Levin have been hammering on her with solid, fact-based material. The Cankled One herself is responsible for the negative image as the Klan can’t help themselves from associating with criminals, hoodlums, foreign “donors” and generally ne’er do wells. The Clinton’s have never met a scam or Hsu they didn’t like.

Both Clinton and Giuliani consistently top national polls in the race for their party nomination. However, Clinton’s lead is narrower in the early primary voting states of New Hampshire and Iowa and Giuliani trails former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in those two states.

The candidate with the most negative coverage during the first five months of 2007 — almost 48 percent of stories — was Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain. His campaign was in turmoil then because of rapid spending and staff shake-ups.

Traitor McSwine, well and truly deserves each and every one of the negatives. It’s called talking out of your mouth and ass simultaneously, something even the unwashed masses can see.

Democratic hopeful Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois received the most positive coverage, 47 percent, during that period. He raised more campaign dollars than Clinton during the first half of the year but has not been able to close the gap in polls.

Yes, we were beginning to wonder when the media wonder-boy’s fresh-face would wear a bit thin. I suppose Madame LaFarge finally loosed her hounds on the MSM to bring down Dumbo, even though he was managing quite well on his own.

The study found that Democrats received more coverage than Republicans but said that was in part because Republicans with big money war chests announced their bids later than Democrats. It was also due to media attention on the possibility of the United States’ first female president, Clinton, and first black president, Obama.

Oh the poor destitute dems, Hillary raised $26 million in the first quarter of the year, with Romney at $23 million (a significant portion his own) and Rudy’s war chest for the quarter was only at $15 million. Yep it’s the big war-chest of the Republicans ensuring the Dems are getting the lion’s share of coverage.

Overall, the 2008 presidential election was second only in news coverage to the war in Iraq, according to the Project for Excellence in Journalism’s News Coverage Index.

We can think of a special Project for Excellence in Journalism, but it’s illegal in all 50 states.

“What political scientists used to call the ‘Invisible Primary’ of endorsements, fund-raising and organizational work, in other words, is invisible no more,” the study said.

Huh? The only thing that isn’t invisible anymore is the blatant, seething bias of academia and the LameStream Midiots™ We can always count of phony pollsters and ’studies’ to do their prevaricating best in proof of their agenda.

    Regardless of the quantity of exposure she has received, we must ensure that enough of it is truth that she does not get elected. We know she’s truly socialist enough for the nutroots. We know she’s not going to make it on their vote alone. So she panders to the middle, hoping to get their vote, even though she’ll turn on them in a flat minute once she’s in power. The middle must know the truth, the left must believe her lie. Or if they don’t, the truth must be known so that :em72: is the only vote she gets.

    Rad Red. is a very sick man, isn’t he? I think he’ll be fine once they come to take him away… Or better yet, have picture with campaign ad underneath that reads “I’m voting for Hillary”. That should do the trick, and no more worries about Hillary baby getting elected.

    I thought I was the only one who thought that the J. Geils Band kind of petered out after Love Stinks. It’s hard to argue with success, though; I made my living playing in a band for awhile, and we’d have sung the phone book if it would have made money for us.

    But those photos… wow, guys. Just, wow. I need to study my girlfriend’s picture, very intently, for about five minutes; that should cleanse my retinas.

    well as one who’s full name is only 1 vowel away from being identical to J Geils name, I have to say that his early stuff….up to the Bloodshot album was pretty damned good stuff. I found Peter Wolf kind of annoying after a while but never tired of Magic Dicks harmonica playing.

    What really endeared them to me was they all carried weapons of some sort, mostly switchblades and such……a typical Boston bar band.
