Journalists themselves now play a smaller role in shaping these media narratives than they once did. Journalists are the source for about half as much of the statements about the candidates as was the case 12 years go. The campaigns, by contrast, have come to play an ever larger role in shaping these narratives. The candidates and their partisan allies are the source for nearly a third more of the personal narrative about the candidates than in 2000.

well yeah, if you allow unlimited political contributions to anonymous third parties who are can't be held responsible for the content of their messages, you're going to get a sh*tload of negative ads. it's gabe's law of internet anonymity brought to mainstream politics.

Fully 36% of the master narrative themes about Obama in the press suggested that the president had failed to do enough to help the economy. That was more than twice the percentage of the counter argument-that the economy would be weaker had it not been for the administration's actions-which made up 16% of the assertions about Obama.

I feel validated.

Also, it appears I may be the only person in America who thinks both candidates are fine men with good intentions.

Let me guess: they're counting Fox as "journalists"?

"President Obama's assertion that the private sector is doing fine was no gaffe," asserted Fox News analyst Brit Hume, on June 11. Rather it reflects "his clear belief in the primacy of the public sector over the private."

Yup.

What, specifically, are Mitt Romney's secret good intentions? Because the public platform doesn't seem to have much except carefully crafted cliches. Hell, there are only like 2 specific things in the whole "plan" ... the rest are just qualitative statements that "something will be better in some vague way".

Taxes? They'll be lower, son. Vote for me is the right thing to do Philadelphia. So do.

"On the Republican side, the No. 1 personal narrative about Romney is that his experience in private equity suggests he is a "vulture" capitalist who doesn't care about workers, followed closely by the idea that he is an elitist out of touch with average Americans. The third-biggest personal narrative in the media about Romney is that he is a gaffe-prone, awkward campaigner. "

Narrative? Do they not know cold hard facts when they see them?

I see nothing of worth here.
