I agree with Harvard, it's rare to find any good Trump news coming out of any outlet that isn't Fox nowadays. The question is, what do you propose is the solution? Do you ask journalists to keep their bias out of the news they are supposed to report? Maybe they only publish reactionary pieces that are neither critical nor encouraging of Trump? Maybe we all just shut up and trust that he's got our best interests at heart? The reason we don't trust Trump is the reason right wingers don't trust the media, it's because we suspect that there are underlying motives behind everything he/they do. Only in the media's case they don't try to hide it.

No, not at all. The artical still didn't address the fact that Trump has brought this all on himself ,it admits it's self inflicted" but doesn't go on to address it.It also doesn't address the facts in it's own numbers.Explain why FOX(the trump network as they call it) even had a majority of bad news reporting on Trump (52%)It is the press's job to question our goverment seems to me the press is doing a good job and as the circus continues we will see more of it.Does this mean it should stop just becuase it's negative???Maybe the tangerine President should act more like a President and less like a DICtator.

Re: Media Bias

Well written piece supported by facts of a non political source.

Best part of article:

Many beltway journalists are essentially establishment creatures, gatekeepers for the political ruling class, members of that class and fierce guardians of their place in the empire. The political class sees Trump and the 62 million Americans who voted for him as the stuff they scrape off their shoes.

While Trump's 80-20 negative coverage ratio is amazing, Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush also received much negative coverage in their first 100 days, at about 60-40 ratios.

So how was President Obama covered in his first 100 days? With a 60-40 positive to negative ratio, according to the Harvard study.

"That's a significant shift, a significant difference," says Bevan. "I think this is reflective of the fact that the media does root from the press box and they do cheer for certain personalities and they do cheer against others."

How do they explain that even the "press that supports trump" reports a 52% negative news about him?Harvard has been wrong before.The Tangerine turd brings it on himself.

Re: Media Bias

Giantone, I'm just providing basis to what I've noticed for the last 5-6 years. The top offender is cnn in that article, followed by NBC and cbs. This is the mainstream media...we should be very disturbed. This isn't fox, MSNBC.

Re: Media Bias

Its the lefty websites that are doing the crying.....
If they actually reported news instead of running a smear campaign they might get better treatment.
