2008 Presidential Election and Media Influence

Posted by TopOfTheThread on June 14, 2008

The media always influences, or attempts to influence, your thoughts.

Barak Obama Hillary Clinton John McCain

Certain TV stations are Democrat-biased. Others Republican-Oriented .The subtly of the biases varies.

I really like this example:

The anti-McCain bias jumped off the page.The cover of Direct Magazine (directmag.com) June 2008. Obama is presented as the happy, good looking, approachable, high-tech person. Hillary Clinton is drawn as a cheating, bug-eyed person. John McCain is presented as an old, asleep-at-the-wheel candidate.

There’s no arguing Obama is the winner in this presentation.
