President Obama had his best run of media coverage during the final week of the campaign, while positive coverage of Mitt Romney dwindled, according to a study released Monday from the Pew Research Centers Project for Excellence in Journalism.
Between Oct. 29 and Nov. 5, 29 percent of stories about Obama were positive, compared to 19 negative, while only 16 percent of Romneys stories were positive, compared to 33 negative. It was Obamas best week of media coverage since the Democratic National Convention, and only the second time in the cycle positive stories outnumbered negative ones for the president.
The tonal disparity was also evident throughout the fall. Both candidates finished with more negative stories than positive ones, but Romneys negative stories outpaced Obamas by more than 2 to 1. All told, 20 percent of Obamas coverage was positive compared to 29 percent that was negative, while Romney came in at 15 percent positive and 37 negative.
