In his very first piece for CJR last week, intern Peter Sterne criticized Politico’s story that alleged a pro-Obama bias in election coverage of the president and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

This week, Sterne went on the radio to discuss it. He was a guest on Monday on The Morning Briefing with Tim Farley on the Sirius Satellite Radio channel POTUS.

“I felt that first of all, it was poorly written, because the way that Politico described these articles against Mitt Romney, they really only considered the impact on the campaign,” Sterne told Farley. “Now, I understand why a politics-focused outlet like Politico would focus primarily on the political implications, but I don’t think that represents real media criticism.”
