Tax-exempt Media Matters ramping up support for Obama in election year

A content analysis by The Daily Caller shows that the tax-exempt liberal messaging organization has steadily committed more of its resources to defending Obama from critical media coverage during 2012.

Between May 29, the day Mitt Romney crossed the delegate threshold to secure the GOP nomination, and June 11, fully 60 percent of the Web articles produced by Media Matters have set out to defend the president.

During the same time frame in 2011, a non-election year, just 39 percent of the group’s online posts mention Obama.

This year, those ever-supportive mentions typically peak between Tuesday and Thursday of each week.
