Through extensive analysis of news content from the Big Three and Fox, acclaimed media scholars Stephen J. Farnsworth and S. Robert Lichter compare what the candidates said with what the networks say they said and judge the disparity a nightmare. The authors go onto suggest that perhaps the candidates themselves do a better job of portraying the campaigns than those who used to be the trusted network guardians of the news. While the amount of news coverage of the Bush-Kerry race marked an improvement compared to previous elections, Farnsworth and Lichter also point out that, in other ways, things were even worse in 2004."@en ;
