In what is probably the clearest sign of liberal media bias ever, all news media outlets, even Fox News, gave President Trump net negative overall coverage, while only one issue landed him positive coverage.
Media bias of the first 100 days of the Trump presidency have gone pretty much as well as anyone would expect given their brazen opposition to him.
This study ends up going a long way in explaining the left-wing shellshock experienced by Trump’s electoral victory over Hillary Clinton last year. The denial continues as media bias continues on by the left to justify themselves for being so pro-Hillary.
From the Shorenstein Center study:
A new report from Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzes news coverage of President Trump’s first 100 days in office.
The report is based on an analysis of news reports in the print editions of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post, the main newscasts of CBS, CNN, Fox News, and NBC, and three European news outlets (The UK’s Financial Times and BBC, and Germany’s ARD).
President Trump dominated media coverage in the outlets and programs analyzed, with Trump being the topic of 41 percent of all news stories—three times the amount of coverage received by previous presidents. He was also the featured speaker in nearly two-thirds of his coverage.
Republican voices accounted for 80 percent of what newsmakers said about the Trump presidency, compared to only 6 percent for Democrats and 3 percent for those involved in anti-Trump protests.
European reporters were more likely than American journalists to directly question Trump’s fitness for office.
Trump has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency, without a single major topic where Trump’s coverage, on balance, was more positive than negative, setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president.
Fox was the only news outlet in the study that came close to giving Trump positive coverage overall, however, there was variation in the tone of Fox’s coverage depending on the topic.
Trump gets the best treatment from Fox News, but even they have been giving him negative coverage on the whole.
Virtually nobody in the media feels he is fit for the office.
Even George W. Bush, who the left (still) thinks stole the 2000 election and the media continued with independent recounts in Florida for a year after the election was settled (and found nothing), was treated much better than Trump, who was unquestionably duly elected.
The only thing the media could come to give Trump positive coverage on was the Syrian airstrike.
