Fox News Stands Out as "Too Critical" of Obama
No One Network Singled Out as Too Easy



Pew Research Poll: FOX News is too critical of President Obama
By John Amato Monday Apr 27, 2009 6:45am In the latest Pew Research Poll, FOX News tops all networks by a huge margin as being too critical of the president.

When Americans are asked to assess television news coverage of Barack Obama, Fox News Channel stands out from other networks for being too critical of the president. Nearly three-in-ten (29%) select Fox when asked which of six broadcast and cable news networks have been too critical of the new Democratic president, a far greater share than any other network. In contrast, no one TV network is singled out for being too easy on Obama.

It's good to know that many Americans see right through Roger Ailes and the home network he's developed for the GOP. Obviously the word "critical" has a different meaning to FOX than it does to most of us. We will criticize certain policies the Obama administration proposes, but FOX spreads lies and smears. At least Americans do understand what FOX is up to.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">When Americans are asked to assess television news coverage of Barack Obama, Fox News Channel stands out from other networks for being too critical of the president. Nearly three-in-ten (29%) select Fox when asked which of six broadcast and cable news networks have been too critical of the new Democratic president, a far greater share than any other network.

In contrast, no one TV network is singled out for being too easy on Obama. Each of five networks (CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS) was named by about one in six respondents in this regard. Again, the Fox News Network stands apart – just 5% named Fox as being too easy on the president.

The latest weekly News Interest Index survey, conducted April 17-20 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, finds a substantial partisan divide in views of how TV news networks cover Obama. More than four-in-ten Democrats (44%) say Fox has been too critical of Obama, compared with 25% of independents and just 18% of Republicans. No other network comes close to Fox, though 11% overall – including 18% of Democrats – say CNN has been too critical of the president. Very few Americans cite the broadcast networks – ABC (4%), NBC (4%) or CBS (3%) – as too critical.


In the survey, no one network is particularly identified as too easy on Obama. That is despite the view of many media watchers that, among the cable stations, MSNBC’s prime time lineup tilts to the left, while Fox’s leans conservative. Some 16% of Americans identify MSNBC as too easy on Obama, the same percentage that cites CNN. Among Republicans, one quarter (25%) says MSNBC is too easy on Obama; about as many say the same about CNN and each of the broadcast networks.

The impression that there is a pro-Obama bias to media coverage is widespread among Republicans – a majority identifies at least one network as being too easy on Obama, and a quarter feels that at least five of the six major networks – if not all of them – are too easy on Obama. This criticism is cast evenly across all networks except Fox News.

While many Americans see one or more networks as too critical or too easy on Obama, just more than half make no such distinctions. When it comes to being too critical, 53% either say that none of the networks is guilty, or offer no opinion. The same is true when it comes to whether any of the networks is too easy on Obama.

In a separate question on the media in general, the public sees coverage of the first months of the Obama administration as fair. Two thirds (66%) say the news organizations they follow are being fair to the new president, while 18% say they are being unfair. More than seven-in-ten (72%) Republicans say the coverage has been fair, compared with 66% of Democrats and 67% of independents.

Those who say they see the coverage as unfair – including 23% of Democrats, 16% of independents and 12% of Republicans – were asked to explain their answers. Among the common responses were that the media was expecting too much too quickly, that it was being too negative and critical and that Obama was getting blamed for steps taken by past administrations.

<span style="color: #000066">There are so many documented Fox News Lies available on Youtube, It's proof of the livingindenial RW idiots, who block out reality as a way of life.

There are really only two kinds of Americans, normal people who search for facts, and the RW nuckle dragging - NUTCASE neanderthals who spend all their time trying to cnvince the rest of us that they have a clue!

Hubris on parade! As we can easily see on this forum, which is a commenatry to:

"How Can forty Million People Be So Dumb?"</span>

So, you're saying almost 30% of people think Fox is too critical of Obama? It must be a coincidence that 28% of American's think Obama is doing a good job.

I wonder if they might be the same people...

In any case, less than 30% does not constitute 'the gig is up'.

Personally, I'm kinda glad that at least one news organization isn't totally in the tank for Obama, and will attempt to hold him accountable for his actions.

Is the man so stupid as to think that he could be in the office, having been voted for by a slight (54%) majority of voters, and think there would be no criticism?????

How long will the lefties continue to accept the "mess we inherited" excuse for his poor performance?

Note to the OP....the term is "the JIG is up", not the GIG.

His approval ratings have dropped faster in the first 9 months in office of any president in history.

I would say since Grant ... but we are in general agreement.

I would rank the most corrupt of all time:

1 - Grant.
2 - Obama.
3 - Hoover.
4 - Clinton.
5 - Nixon.

Least corrupt:

1 - Washington.
2 - Eisenhower.
3 - T Roosevelt.
4 - Jefferson.
5 - Madison.
