She continued that on Tuesday's <em>Starting Point</em>.<br /> </p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/cnn-again-hosts-lib-journalist-carole-simpson-who-says-people-person-obama-enjoys-debate-" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division Barack Obama Carole Simpson CNN Debates Election 2012 Mitt Romney Starting Point Tue, 16 Oct 2012 22:33:58 +0000 matt.hadro 41539 at http://mrc.org MRC Study: By 2-to-1 Margin, Journalists Favor Liberal Questions at Town Hall Debates http://mrc.org/media-reality-check/mrc-study-2-1-margin-journalists-favor-liberal-questions-town-hall-debates <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/rich-noyes">Rich Noyes</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><img style="float: right; margin: 3px;" src="/sites/default/files/uploads/images/2012/october/Debate2008.jpg" width="267" />Tonight’s town hall-style presidential debate will ostensibly feature questions from undecided voters, but the evening’s agenda will really be decided by the moderator, as CNN’s Candy Crowley will select which of the more than roughly 80 voters in the room will actually get a chance to talk to the candidates. <br /></p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/media-reality-check/mrc-study-2-1-margin-journalists-favor-liberal-questions-town-hall-debates" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Media Reality Check News Analysis Division Barack Obama Candy Crowley Carole Simpson conservative Jim Lehrer liberal Mitt Romney Tom Brokaw town hall debate Mon, 15 Oct 2012 19:03:10 +0000 rich.noyes 41520 at http://mrc.org CNN Hosts Liberal Journalist Carole Simpson, Who Gives Edge to Obama In Tuesday's Debate http://mrc.org/biasalerts/cnn-hosts-liberal-journalist-carole-simpson-who-gives-edge-obama-tuesdays-debate <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/matt-hadro">Matt Hadro</a> </div> </div> </div> <p> <img src="/sites/default/files/uploads/2012-10-15-CNN-Simpson-Debate.JPG" style="float: right; margin: 3px;" height="135" width="240" />Liberal journalist Carole Simpson is at it again. The former debate moderator returned to CNN and cast doubt on Mitt Romney's expectations while building up President Obama's, on Monday.<br /> <br /> "I would have to say he [Obama] would have the edge in this debate," she mused. "One of Mitt Romney's problems throughout the campaign season has been does he relate to ordinary people?" she asked before adding "I'm not sure he can." </p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/cnn-hosts-liberal-journalist-carole-simpson-who-gives-edge-obama-tuesdays-debate" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division Barack Obama Carole Simpson CNN Debates Election 2012 Mitt Romney Mon, 15 Oct 2012 22:08:42 +0000 matt.hadro 41525 at http://mrc.org Liberal Journalist Carole Simpson Laughs at Romney, Praises Obama on CNN http://mrc.org/biasalerts/liberal-journalist-carole-simpson-laughs-romney-praises-obama-cnn <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/matt-hadro">Matt Hadro</a> </div> </div> </div> <p> <img src="/sites/default/files/uploads/2012-10-02-CNN-Baldwin-Simpson.JPG" style="float: right; margin: 3px;" height="135" width="240" />The day before Wednesday's presidential debate, CNN hosted liberal journalist Carole Simpson to give her take on the event. Not surprisingly, she laughed at Mitt Romney while praising President Obama.<br /> <br /> "Romney is practicing zingers. He's not very funny," Simpson mocked Romney, before laughing. What did she say for President Obama? "I think he's much more comfortable in his skin."&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://mrc.org/biasalerts/liberal-journalist-carole-simpson-laughs-romney-praises-obama-cnn" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division Barack Obama Brooke Baldwin Carole Simpson CNN Election 2012 Mitt Romney Wed, 03 Oct 2012 04:53:36 +0000 matt.hadro 41400 at http://mrc.org The MRC@25: The Worst Media Bias of 1999 http://mrc.org/biasalerts/mrc25-worst-media-bias-1999 <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/rich-noyes">Rich Noyes</a> </div> </div> </div> <p> Each morning, the MRC has been showcasing the most egregious bias we have uncovered over the years — four quotes for each of the 25 years of the MRC, 100 quotes total — all leading up to our big 25th Anniversary Gala September 27.
