The media is in near full liberal activist mode one week before the November midterm elections, making 10 times more negative statements toward Republicans than Democrats, Media Research Center's Rich Noyes reported.
And it is not just that ratio that is alarmingly biased. The volume of coverage is almost four times that of the 2014 midterms where Republicans were poised to take full control of Congress, according to the report.
Noyes' MRC study analyzed stories which mentioned the midterm elections on ABC, CBS, NBC evening news from Sept. 1-Oct. 26, including 60 percent of instances having come in the past two weeks.
MRC found 132 stories that mentioned the midterm elections, 97 of which painted Republicans and President Donald Trump in a negative light. Democrats were mentioned negatively in those stories just 10 times, per the study.
Much of the negativity is pointed at President Trump, as his mentions have trumped that of all of the actual midterm candidates for the Senate, House, and gubernatorial races combined.
Network coverage of Republicans rated as 88 percent negative, while Democrats' coverage was just 53 percent negative, per the report.
If not for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Native American claims from a DNA test, Democratic coverage would have been overwhelmingly positive at 67 percent, per MRC.
As for the volume of negativity, it was far less abundant in 2014 midterms when the Republicans were ramping up a red wave during former President Barack Obama's administration, Noyes wrote.
During a similar time period, midterm election mentions on those networks in 2014 were barely one-fourth (35) of these 2018 midterms (132), according to MRC.
