The liberal group Media Matters released a report this week showing a wide divergence in the amount of airtime different Republican presidential candidates get from Fox News.
The study, which covers June 1 to July 24, identifies seven candidates who have made 10 or more appearances: Herman Cain (19), Ron Paul (17), Tim Pawlenty (14), Michele Bachmann (13), Newt Gingrich (12), Gary Johnson (11) and Rick Santorum (10).
Then there are the candidates who have made fewer than five appearances: Mitt Romney (3), Jon Huntsman (2) and Buddy Roemer (1). Thaddeus McCotter is in the middle range, with seven Fox hits.
Cain has been on the air for a total of three hours and eight minutes since June 1, according to the study. That’s more than three times as much as Romney and Huntsman have been on Fox, combined.
