  • You're Not Imagining It: The Media Really Is Biased About Impeaching Donald Trump

    11/29/2019 6:16:37 PM PST · by DOC44 · 24 replies
    Media watchdog NewsBusters breaks it down for us. In a study released this week, NewsBusters reports that major networks gave dozens of hours of coverage to the impeachment hearings against President Trump, but in 1998 they gave a fraction of that amount of coverage to Ken Starr's impeachment presentation against President Clinton: Broadcast networks NBC, CBS, and ABC have donated 75 hours of free air time to Democrats’ impeachment hearings, despite notably poor (and consistently shrinking) ratings. Yet during President Clinton’s impeachment, these same networks could not be bothered to carry more than a few hours of independent counsel Ken...

    Rasmussen asked this question about the Democrats’ politicized impeachment charade: “When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump, or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?” The results: Most voters don’t expect fair play from the media when it comes to news coverage of the Democrats’ impeachment attempt. Fifty-three percent (53%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most reporters are trying to help impeach President Trump when they write or talk about the impeachment effort. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone...

    The American media will be hit with nearly 12,000 job cuts in 2019, the highest number since the economic crisis of 2009. “The consultancy Challenger Gray & Christmas reported this week media companies, which include movies, television, publishing, music, and broadcast and print news, announced plans to cut 15,474 jobs so far this year, of which 11,878 of which were from news organizations” reports AFP. This is a huge increase over 2017’s 4,062 media job cuts and, according to the article at least, this is primarily happening due to paywalls and ad revenue. A number of media outlets are installing...
  • Poll Underlines Liberal Dominance in TV News

    The Hollywood Reporter performed a poll on the news media, and the finding is still unexpected and shocking to some. The headline was "Americans Think All Network News Channels Lean Liberal, Poll Finds." Common sense has won. Can we dispose of the ridiculous fiction that the network news product is objective, strictly balanced and nonpartisan? The poll of 2,200 Americans from March 28 to April 2 asked if certain media outlets are "more liberal" or "more conservative" or have "no political lean." The Big Three networks averaged 35 percent "more liberal" and about 20 percent "no political lean." Count on...

    Vice Media CEO Nancy Dubuc announced to employees Friday morning that the news outlet will slash its headcount by 10 percent as part of a “strategic” restructuring. A Vice Media spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that 250 of its 2500 staffers will be let go to refocus its growth efforts in production and branded content. Employees from departments, including finance and IT, are expected to be impacted by the decision. “Having finalized the 2019 budget, our focus shifts to executing our goals and hitting our marks,” Dubuc (pictured) wrote in a company-wide memo. “We will make Vice the best manifestation...

    The New York Slimes ^ | 01 NOV 2018 | Michael D. Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis
    WASHINGTON — President Trump’s closing argument is now clear: Build tent cities for migrants. End birthright citizenship. Fear the caravan. Send active-duty troops to the border. Refuse asylum. Immigration has been the animating issue of the Trump presidency, and now — with the possibility that Republicans could face significant losses in the midterm elections on Tuesday — the president has fully embraced a dark, anti-immigrant message in the hope that stoking fear will motivate voters to reject Democrats. In a rambling speech on Thursday afternoon that was riddled with falsehoods and vague promises to confront a “crisis” at the border,...

    CNN President Jeff Zucker said his network's audience would dwindle if its news programming shifted away from covering President Trump. In an interview published in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Zucker said the reason why CNN spends much of the day reporting on Trump's day-to-day activities and his rhetoric stems from viewer demand. “People say all the time, ‘Oh, I don’t want to talk about Trump, I’ve had too much Trump,’ ” Zucker told Vanity Fair. “And yet at the end of the day, all they want to do is talk about Trump." "We’ve seen that anytime you break...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) — The prognosis for President Donald Trump and his party was grim.</p> <p>In a post-Labor Day briefing at the White House, a top Republican pollster told senior staff that the determining factor in the election wouldn’t be the improving economy or the steady increase in job creation. It would be how voters feel about Trump. And the majority of the electorate, including a sizable percentage of Republican-leaning voters, doesn’t feel good about the president, according to a presentation from pollster Neil Newhouse that spanned dozens of pages.</p>

    For those of us who still love getting our news from newspapers, those inky, crinkly, thin sheets of wood pulp you hold in your hands and read, these indeed are sad times. Print newspapers, thanks in large part to the meteoric rise of smartphones and online and social media, are in serious decline. [Snip] Many media analysts believe it won’t be long before print newspapers disappear. If it happens, they in large part will be devoured by a voracious horde of online and social media, many of which have little respect for the notion that the first function of news...

    I'm confused. How is this different than every other day in the media? "The dirty war on the free press must end." That's the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. Unusual? That's been the same theme that the media has been putting out for a few weeks. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump's escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. There's been a coordinated campaign against Republicans by the media for around 90 years. "We propose to publish an editorial on August...

    CNN correspondent Jim Acosta discusses his question to press secretary Sarah Sanders, when she refused to say that the press was not the enemy of the American people. Acosta was so distressed that he walked out of Thursday's press briefing. Acosta came up with an idea to combat the 'CNN sucks' chants of Trump supporters: "I think maybe we should make some bumper stickers. Make some buttons, you know maybe we should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue like these folks who chant CNN sucks and fake news, maybe we should go out, all journalists should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue...

    If the media can dish it out, they should be prepared to take it. Tuesday night, at a Trump rally in Tampa, Fla., Jim Acosta complained about the crowd booing him, even making it part of his on-air bit with Wolf Blitzer. “You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here — saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home’ and ‘fake news,’ ” Acosta complained. Then, in what has become a ritual with Acosta, he signed off with some virtue-signalling and then gave a nod to his own, insurmountable dedication to journalism in...

    Well, that escalated quickly. The rise of “democratic socialism” has been one of the key developments in the Democratic Party in recent years, first with the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and more recently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win over party mainstay Rep. Joe Crowley in New York. One of the ways the movement is presented is with the claim that this is not your grandfather’s socialism -- or the socialism of the former Soviet Union, Venezuela or other failed states. It’s more “Scandinavian health care” than overthrowing the bourgeoisie. But now a democratic socialist writer is leveling with voters,...
