Skip to comments.Study: The Liberal Media’s Summer of Pummeling Trump
Posted on 09/12/2017 3:24:08 PM PDT by ForYourChildren
The broadcast network evening newscasts remain as hostile as ever towards President Trump and his agenda, although the networks appear to be easing up on their obsessive wall-to-wall coverage of the administration.
Since Inauguration Day (January 20), Media Research Center analysts have reviewed every mention of President Trump and top administration officials on ABCs World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News, including weekends. As of August 31, coverage of the administration has totaled nearly 74 hours (4,418 minutes) of airtime, or about 39 percent of all evening news coverage.
For comparison purposes, coverage of the Obama administration in all of 2015 and 2016 totaled 59 hours (3,544 minutes), or roughly 10 percent of the available broadcast airtime. In other words, Trump has already received more coverage in his first 224 days in office than Obama received in his final two years as President.
Analyzing the networks spin makes it clear that the goal of all of this heavy coverage is not to promote the President, but to punish him. In June, July and August, broadcast evening news coverage of Trump was 91 percent negative worse than the astounding 89 percent negative spin we calculated during the first three months of the administration, usually a traditional honeymoon period for new presidents.

And why does the msm do this?
“On Fridays Morning Joe, MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin gave the game away when he admitted that Trump will get good coverage, if he works with Democrats, for as far as the eye can see. It will produce more liberal policies, which a lot of people in the media like.”
The media is wo
rthless and weak!
The so called media is in fact "The Ministry of Truth" (for the DNC) as described in George Orwell's book "1984".
I expect Trump has gained supporters since election day while trust in the MSM has continued to fall.
Just Summer? They’ve been at it since the Fall & Winter of 2016, Spring and Summer of 2017 and heading into the Fall of 2017..they’ll never stop. They’re that pathetic and insane just like her.
A good indicator of the insanity is that they just don’t seem to get that the more they (unfairly) pummel Trump the more it drives fair-minded voters into his camp, voters who might otherwise be disposed to take a look at other candidates. I speak from experience. I started out, like many, very skeptical of Trump. But came around to supporting him precisely because the media and their ‘Rat allies were so merciless in their lying coverage of him.
