Hmmm...they did give him a lot of free coverage and talked about him a ton (and dumped on Hillary a bunch) but I wouldn't call that "favoritism"

1960: JFK without a doubt
1964: LBJ
1968: Humphrey (which is prob why it ended up being so close)
1972: Nixon
1976: Carter (Ford was often parodied as a bumbling fool)
1980: Reagan (Less so in the beginning of the campaign)
1984: Reagan
1988: HW (this became apparent in the debates when Dukakis was asked whether he'd still oppose the death penalty if his wife was raped and murdered...)
1992: "Comeback Kid" Bill Clinton
1996: Clinton
2000: W
2004: Kerry
2008: Obama
2012: Obama
2016: You could argue Trump. Since they badly wanted a horserace and felt Hillary was going to have a landslide otherwise. But of course, most media personalities wanted her to win.

1968: Humphrey (which is prob why it ended up being so close)
1972: Nixon

Contrary to the history that has now totally been re-written. The press were big fans of Nixon in his 60', 68', and 72' election bids:

Quote
In 1960, Nixon was endorsed over Kennedy by seventy-eight per cent of the country’s newspapers that took a position on the election; in 1968, Nixon got eighty per cent of whatever editorial support was expressed; and in 1972 he got ninety-three per cent. (Like Kennedy, Nixon has probably meant to criticize certain powerful Eastern newspapers that he feels have not been sympathetic to him, but, unlike Kennedy, he has publicly and repeatedly attacked “the press” and “the media,” without naming the newspapers and columnists and network commentators he feels have been unfair, and so has left the impression in the public mind that the press as a whole cannot be trusted.) And President Nixon was also treated with uncommon charity by the press after he took office.

The right-wing has been bitching about the media (which is largely favorable to them anyway) since forever.

Truth is that New Deal Democrats largely hated the press and vice versa. FDR absolutely hated the press and relentlessly attacked them

Print media and TV media are two separate things

Not really. The liberal media is a myth. The media in this country does have a status quo bias tho

Can someone explain to me why is it that the media favors a certain candidate in each of the elections?
