Skip to comments.Honeymoon from Hell: The Liberal Media vs. President Trump (89% negative coverage)
Posted on 04/21/2017 10:00:59 AM PDT by Stopthethreat
As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party.
Eight years ago, the networks treatment of President Obamas first 100 days was very different. Back then, the networks delivered most of their coverage to Obamas key policy priorities, topped by the nearly $1 trillion stimulus package (150 stories, or 15% of the total). The network spin for that legislation: 58% positive, vs. 42% negative.
As MRC analysts calculated at the time, the networks also doled mostly positive coverage for Obamas intervention in the housing market (59% positive), his decision to use taxpayer money to fund embryo-destroying stem cell research (82% positive), as well as his push for more government action on global warming (78% positive).

We didn;t believe the news outlets in the campaign, and aren’t impressed now. I think we all are much smarter now.
89%?? That would imply 11% positive coverage, and I haven’t seen 1, not 1 single story regarding Trump in any outlet that I would consider MSM to be positive... other than some brief positive analysis over his bombing of Syria.
Otherwise haven’t seen anything else out of the MSM I would consider positive, its all negative, to neutral at best.
100% negative coverage is more it.
Not only 89% negative. 89% LIES.

Our local rag is 100%. Even if CNN or AP (they link direct to them) accidentally report a positive sentence about Trump they ALWAYS fill up the rest of the article with “but there are experts” to bash everything republican related. Example...
“Regulation elimination will save 50 billion dollars but millions of children will be killed”
Not quite so hyperbolic but pretty close.
At best that would be 89% negative, 11% neutral and 0% positive. However I believe it is closer to 100% negative.
Heck there was talk of impeachment from the dimoKKKRATS before President Trump even took office.
The media have decided that they are no longer partisan. They should have to file the proper forms for electioneering since that’s what they’re doing.
“Liberal Media vs President Trump”
“Democrat Ministry of Propaganda vs President Trump”.
sorry. did a search but did not find it
