Accuracy in Media

Liberals might yawn at the prospect of yet another study showing overwhelming media bias against a Republican president but this report does not come from a right-wing think tank. Instead, it comes from one of their favorite think tanks.

Harvard University’s Shorestein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy released a report last week that indicated there is anti-Trump liberal media bias. They analyzed the news media coverage in the U.S. and in Europe, and found that the U.S. liberal media did not publish positive coverage of President Trump by a large margin.

How large? Eighty percent of news coverage surrounding Trump’s first one hundred days in office was negative, with only 20% positive coverage. Comparatively, Obama received 59% positive coverage and 41% negative coverage by the media.

The report also pointed out that Trump “dominated media coverage in the outlets and programs analyzed” at 41%, which Harvard noted is “three times the amount of coverage received by previous presidents.” The report said that Trump “was also the featured speaker in nearly two-thirds of his coverage.”

According to the report, European journalists “were more likely than American journalists” to question Trump’s “fitness for office.” Of all the media outlets,  Fox News “was the only news outlet in the study that came close to giving Trump positive coverage overall.”

    “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”.

    I reckon the liberals don’t recognize any part of the 10 Commandments, …the heathen bastards.

    It is kind of hard to be in favor of an administration that colludes with the Russian oligarchs in opposition to American values and history, wouldn’t you think?

    No evidence at all of Russian collusion, honey. Sort of need EVIDENCE in courts of law in OUR country, wouldn’t you think? Unless of course you are a Stalinist from the left who doesnt care about truth, facts or evidence. In that case innuendo is enough. At least, for some of you.

  • Unlike any previous president, Donald Trump seem to be a master at dominating the news. It’s not the issues he stands for so much as it is his style. The more he criticizes “fake news,” and the more that responsible journalists cover his idiosyncratic self-promotion, the greater is the damage to responsible journalism. It has become an unavoidable trap. Thanks to Accuracy in Media for helping to point this out.

    How could the media cover Trump with anything positive since Trump is pure evil, pure stupidity and a complete idiot? He’s incompetent. He’s Putin’s b!tch. Eventually we will learn what the Russians have on the trumpturd in chief.
    He attracts idiots like flies on sh!t so his supporters are like him, corrupt, morally bankrupt, racist, anti constitutional, hypocritical and anti American.

    Man, you must be smoking so bad, bad stuff. You really need to drink a glass of warm milk, turn off MSNBC and let someone tuck you in. You really do need some sleep.

    Yep, he really has a bad case of Russianitis. A good helping of Rush on the radio might save him.
