BMI's Julia Seymour on FNC: Networks Blame Congress, Not Obama, for Fiscal Cliff
BMI Assistant Editor Julia Seymour appeared on "Your World" with Neil Cavuto to discuss the media's coverage of the Fiscal Cliff on November 15.
Seymour cited a BMI study which found that the three major networks blamed Congress 16 more times than they blamed President Obama for the approaching Fiscal Cliff. (Video below)
Seymour pointed out the double standard the media have when it comes to the Fiscal Cliff. She noted that the networks "badger republicans who don’t think that that’s good for the economy and they don’t consider it a valid principle that it’s good to stick to your guns," while "President Obama isn’t criticized for saying that he’ll veto any bill that doesn’t include tax hikes on the wealthy."
