Networks vary on air time for candidates’ speeches

NEW YORK — Television news networks are showing some of the final stump speeches for the presidential candidates, but what you see depends on where you look.

The liberal group Media Matters for America said Monday that the left-leaning MSNBC aired 79 minutes of speechifying by President Obama from Thursday through late Sunday afternoon, compared with 44 minutes on challenger Mitt Romney. There was a larger disparity on Fox News. During the same period, Fox aired 27 minutes of Obama and 168 minutes of Romney making his case.
