Iraq Dominates Project for Excellence in Journalism's First Quarterly NCI Report

Looking more closely at the cable universe itself—among the three channels as well as across day parts—PEJ found distinct differences between the three channels, far more than discerned between the three commercial network channels or newspapers.

As an example, we found that coverage of the three biggest stories of the quarter—Iraq policy debate, the 2008 campaign and Anna Nicole Smith differed greatly across the three channels and day parts.

Overall, MSNBC and CNN were much more consumed with the war in Iraq than was Fox. MSNBC, for instance, devoted nearly a third of the time studied to the war (26% on the policy debate, 3% on events on the ground and 2% the homefront). Fox, by contrast, spent less than half that much time on the war—15% in all, (10% on the policy debate, 3% on events in Iraq and 1% on the homefront).

That's all there is to it."

Pretty much says Fox wants people to 'don't worry, be happpy'. They are the smokescreen Rs hide behind in order to carry out their nefarious activities.

Actually, aside from Countdown, MSNBC isn't fantastic either. Nothing short of Democracy Now on Link, and the radio network Air America deems the public worthy of knowing anything about the running of this country.

Current is pretty good too, it has varied opinions expressed.

Even the C-Span stations heavily favor Rs.

I love the reports that point these things out. Means I am not the only one who is uncomfortable about our media--of course that is why we are all on TVNL too, eh?
