The price of gas has increased 100 percent since President Obama has taken office.  

Bill O'Reilly and Bernie Goldberg discuss  Business and Media Institute's  study of how the media covered the rise of gas prices when Bush was president compared to the Obama presidency.

The three networks broadcasted four times as many stories about gas prices rising when Bush was president compared to when Obama is president.

"The tone was different, today the stories are mostly unemotional, they are about how the gas prices affect the economy, but four years ago they were very personal about how people were having to make decision between buying food and buying gasoline," said Goldberg. 

"Reporters get very excited about covering bad news if a Republican is in the White House."
