    A more pertinent question would be: How did the media affect the election?
    We saw quite different coverage from the media when it came to Obama and Romney.
    statements made by Romney were blown out of proportion by the media while controversial statements were explained away by the media by saying: What the President REALLY meant was...

    Contrast the coverage the media gave to Bush and Katrina compared to Obama and Sandy. Despite not too different of responses by both Presidents, the media went after Bush mercilessly, while telling us now how wonderful Obama was.
