There is a reasonable way to determine if the news coverage is greater for Obama than it was McCain. Compare the amount of coverage Obama received to the average coverage that McCain received on his trips. Funny, but when the Reverend Wright tapes were being played 24/7 on the cable news cycle and featured prominently on network news and print media, nobody from the McCain camp (or the Clinton camp) was complaining about the AMOUNT of coverage Obama was getting (especially compared to, say, the amount of coverage McCain got for Pastors Hagee and Parsley, who had sought after and welcomed their endorsements at the time).It's only bias when it's working against you. When it's working for you, it's that darn media FINALLY focusing on the FACTS THAT MATTER!-synchronicity
