Liberal Media Covers Trump’s Scandals by a 4-to-1 Margin

From the Washington Examiner [1]:

Much has been made of all the free media Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has received, but a watchdog report out Monday finds that much of the coverage has been negative and that ABC, CBS and NBC have covered his controversies more than Hillary Clinton’s by a 4-to-1 margin.

The Media Research Center analysis [2] of 1,099 presidential election stories from January 1 to June 7 found that Trump did indeed dominate coverage, getting nearly half of the total airtime. The networks spent 1,068 minutes on Trump out of a total of 2,137 minutes overall on the race.
