Oh, that media imbalance

From an article in today's NYT "Media Stars Will Accompany Obama Overseas":

The imbalance has appeared in various analyses of the news coverage. The Tyndall Report, a news coverage monitoring service that has the broadcast networks as clients, reports that the three newscasts by the networks — which have a combined audience of more than 20 million people — spent roughly 114 minutes covering Mr. Obama since June. They spent about 48 minutes covering Mr. McCain, who made the rounds of the evening newscasts in satellite interviews last week.

This amazing situation is not one those in the Reagan administration who killed the Fairness Doctrine would have envisioned, I'm sure. Wonder if Pelosi, Kerry and Durbin will renew their efforts to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine? Not holding my breath.
