Contrasting Images of Candidates on TV

Jul 23, 2008  •  Post A Comment

TV is providing sharply different images of presidential hopefuls Sen. Barack Obama, who is touring the Middle East, and Sen. John McCain, when he is shown at all, the New York Times says. While Obama drew expansive coverage abroad, the networks showed mere snippets of McCain’s town meeting in Maine, prompting protests from McCain’s surrogates. But the Times says TV is not showing bias but news judgment: “It’s unusual to see a presidential candidate act so presidential overseas.” Then again, many Republicans believe the Times favors Obama anyway. The Wall Street Journal has more on complaints from the McCain camp.
