Networks Bash GOP Guvs, Not Biden, For Border Crisis: Study

  • A new study shows that major network newscasts are more likely to criticize Republican governors than the Biden Administration on those rare occasions when they cover the border crisis.
  • The Media Research Center analyzed the evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC and found they spent only 143 minutes covering the border crisis from Oct. 1, 2021 to Sept. 30, 2022.
  • But in recent months, the networks have spent more time on the subject, slamming the governors of Florida and Texas for sending migrants to major cities in the Northeast and Midwest.
  • “These liberal networks saved their most intensive coverage of the year until just the past two months — and then, instead of holding Biden accountable, they scorched Republican Governors Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott for sending a few thousand migrants to liberal enclaves such as New York City and Martha’s Vineyard,” Media Research Center analysts wrote.
