No Surprise, the Media Hates Trump

Written by Micah Clark

Another study has found that the mainstream media is overwhelmingly slanted in its coverage of the President. One could argue that Donald Trump is a very different kind of politician whose off the cuff, rough and tumble, shoot from the hip, clunky speaking style makes him an easy target, compared to previous presidents. Yet, when nearly all of the news coverage is found to be negative, objectivity and fairness are missing.

In the first 100 days since U.S. House Democrats began their impeachment push on September 24, ABC, CBS and NBC have aggressively aided the effort. A Media Research Center analysis of 1,053 comments and stories finds the three primary network evening newscasts have battered the President with 93 percent negative coverage and promoted impeachment at the expense of nearly all other Trump news.

At the same time, the broadcast networks donated at least 124 hours of wall-to-wall live coverage as they pre-empted regular programming in favor of U.S. House Democrat-led impeachment activities. The analysis also found that the media has spent twice the amount of coverage on impeaching Trump through the Ukraine probe as it did the Russia probe, which was also overwhelmingly negative coverage.

It seems increasingly obvious that anything positive President Trump does in regard to the economy, foreign policy, or other areas is not going to get much interest, much less any positive coverage from the media.
