2018 Media Study: First Two Months 91% Network Media Trump Coverage Negative
quote:

MRC News has just released a study of ABC, CBS and NBC broadcast news coverage for the first two months of 2018. The results are almost identical to the results from 2017, and highlight the extreme media bias against a republican president.

quote:

(Via NewsBusters) So far, 2018 looks an awful lot like 2017 — at least when it comes to the broadcast networks’ hostile approach to Donald Trump. A Media Research Center analysis of the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts in January and February found ten times more negative comments about the President than positive statements, and found the ongoing Russia investigation once again swamped all other topics.

For this study, MRC analysts looked at all 505 evening news stories that mentioned President Trump or his administration in January and February. Out of 851 total minutes of airtime devoted to the administration, the networks spent almost one-fourth of it (204 minutes, or 24%) on the Russia investigation, eclipsing other major topics such as the economy, immigration reform, and even the gun debate.

they did this with W but he was a wimp and just rolled with it and tried to ingratiate himself to them

trump tells them to frick off and so the negative coverage pile of dirt gets 10 feet higher each time..and its glorious to see how eagerly they continue to dig their grave.

50/50 is fine.

Fox News actually achieved 52% negative and 48% positive last year according to a Harvard study. That's pretty "fair and balanced".

For example CNN or NBC would never allow a Sean Hannity type show to appear on their networks. However Fox News allows a Shep Smith show to appear on its network.

The media and Trump are at war with each other.

The Left sees this and says "Yeah, keep that nut job in check!"

The Right sees this and says "Yeah, stick it too that liberal media!"


Here is the thing, eventually Trump will be out of office. The hit to the media's credibility as anything other than partisan shills will last much beyond that.

It's kinda like my fellow LSU fans harping about negative coverage from ESPN.

Stop sucking and the perception will change!

It’s honestly gotta be 99.something %. 91% seems WAYYY too low in my opinion.

Not a big fan of CNN or MSNBC, but Trump is embarrassing so I'm for it. The numbers seem about right. 91% of the shite he does is ridiculous and harmful without cause. The 9% positive covers the tax cuts.

aaaaand it triggers the shite out of you folks.

The left is setting themselves up for a huge problem.
They've become entrenched in the mainstream media and academia controlling the narrative, and have become "the man"

Young righties create alternative media utilizing humor and satire and are going to win the hearts and minds of upcoming generations. It's the 1960s in reverse.

TRUE or FALSE: In 2018, North Korea has had more favorable coverage than Trump.

If you can’t answer “TRUE”, and don’t see that as a problem, that’s deplorable.

They remind me of the moral majority of the late 80s.

Honesty doesnt reflect negatively. News function is to break the news and let the viewers determine if negative.

Okay, if almost 10% is tax cuts what are the other 9 ridiculous and harmful things he does?

Please list a few.
