MRC Study Shows Media Ignores Menendez, Focuses on Moore

Eric Scheiner | November 14, 2017

A new study from the Media Research Center shows from the evening of November 9 through the morning of November 13, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening newscasts have generated 79 minutes, 42 seconds of coverage on the scandal involving Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Contrast those statistics with those same newscasts’ coverage of the trial of Democratic Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey and you’ll find the Moore scandal has already consumed nearly 40 times more airtime on the Big Three networks’ than a Democrat’s corruption trial.
