Nope, No Bias Here: Only 3% of network news coverage of Trump’s first month was positive
From the Washington Post:
This is based on a new analysis by Media Tenor, an international, independent media research firm. Trained analysts examined 370 news stories about Donald Trump on the “NBC Nightly News,” “CBS Evening News” and Fox News “Special Report” between Jan. 20 and Feb. 17. …
Only 3 percent of the reports about Trump that aired on NBC and CBS were positive, while 43 percent were negative and 54 percent were neutral.
On “Special Report,” the Fox News program that most closely resembles the evening network news, 25 percent of the reports about Trump were negative, compared with 12 percent positive and the remainder neutral. In other words, even the conservative-leaning Fox News featured twice as much bad press as good press.Meanwhile,
Trump has put a 5 year ban on lobbying by Executive Branch officials, (a move which it is believed, may have caused his nominee for NSA to bow out).
He has cut down on regulations hindering businesses from moving forward on investment plans which would jump start the American economy.
He has formed a partnership with Gayboy Trudeau of Canada to help Female Entrepreneurs have access to the networks, markets and capital they need to start a business and live out their financial dreams.
These three moves alone ought to have counted for at least some positive coverage from the overwhelmingly Leftist press.
They won't praise Trump even when he does something that is a fastball right down the middle of leftie-land.
Trump could hire a team of hunks to suck off every homosexual in Hollywood.
Trump could personally perform an abortion on every female who loathes the baby in her body.
Trump could go to the UN and cry over the pain he feels in his heart when he sees Palestinian children throwing rocks rather than working on their homework, because he knows the desperation they must feel inside over al-Naqba.
Trump could do all these things and the Leftists would still want him dead.
Fuck em. Fuck em in the ass.
