For the second day in a row, Fox News devoted extensive coverage to a campaign speech by Mitt Romney, far overshadowing the coverage the network gave President Obama's campaign speech. In fact, Fox News carried Romney's entire 26-minute speech live, while it cut Obama's remarks off after just three minutes.
MSNBC, meanwhile, aired about 14 minutes of Romney's speech as opposed to 15 minutes of Obama's. CNN gave Romney and Obama equal airtime, going back to regular coverage after each had spoken for about 12 minutes...
...On Thursday, Fox also aired Romney's entire speech, which lasted almost 25 minutes, but cut away from Obama's remarks after just six minutes. While Obama was speaking in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson attacked him over Hurricane Sandy and what Carlson called the Obama campaign's "incredibly divisive, nasty" tone.
