CNN’s Coverage of the 2012 Presidential Debates: Balanced or Liberally Biased?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Following the 2012 presidential election season, conservatives charged cable news networks CNN and MSNBC as being liberally biased in their news coverage. While MSNBC openly acknowledges its progressive leanings, CNN has maintained a commitment to balanced journalism. This study conducts a comparative rhetorical and semiotic analysis of both networks’ coverage following the three highly watched presidential debates to see if CNN holds to its balanced commitments. Results indicate a wide separation between the two networks.
