Accuracy in Media

Chris Cillizza, Washington Post writer-turned-CNN analyst, wrote an analysis on how President Donald Trump is addicted to cable television based on a media report on the president spending more time watching.

The analysis appears to be an opinion piece rather than a report based on factual analysis. Cillizza analyzed several of the president’s tweets, and only had this to say at the end of his piece:

But, then, why deny it? Embrace your cable TV addiction, President Trump! Trust me, the water’s fine.
It may appear that Trump is addicted to cable television, but without substantial reporting and further evidence, Cillizza’s claim falls flat.
