Romney Media Coverage Turned Favorable After Michigan Win

Evidence of a left-wing media conspiracy against Romney? From Pew Research Center's Project For Excellence In Journalism:

 

After Romney’s tight victory in the Michigan primary on Feb. 28, news coverage about his candidacy became measurably more favorable and the portrayal of his rivals—particularly Rick Santorum—began to become more negative and to shrink in volume.

One main component of that shift in the narrative is that after Michigan, the news media began to view Romney’s nomination as essentially inevitable.

A look inside the coverage also reveals that Romney endured more media "vetting" of his record and personal character than the other Republican contenders.
