Study: McCain gets more negative coverage than Obama

While the candidates are receiving equal amounts of coverage, 59 percent of stories about McCain were "decidedly negative in nature," while only 14 percent were positive, the Pew study found. Coverage of Obama was more even-handed: 29 percent negative, 36 percent postive and 35 percent neutral or mixed. McCain was doing better until the financial crisis hit.
