Analysis Finds Whopping 91 Percent Of Media’s Coverage Of Trump Has Been Negative

Trump supporters don’t need a study to confirm this. Turn on any news channel other than FOX and you’re pretty much guaranteed to hear anti-Trump rhetoric.

The Media Research Center did a study though. And it confirms that media bias against Trump is all too real.

Study: The Liberal Media’s Summer of Pummeling Trump

The broadcast network evening newscasts remain as hostile as ever towards President Trump and his agenda, although the networks appear to be easing up on their obsessive wall-to-wall coverage of the administration.

Since Inauguration Day (January 20), Media Research Center analysts have reviewed every mention of President Trump and top administration officials on ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News, including weekends. As of August 31, coverage of the administration has totaled nearly 74 hours (4,418 minutes) of airtime, or about 39 percent of all evening news coverage.

For comparison purposes, coverage of the Obama administration in all of 2015 and 2016 totaled 59 hours (3,544 minutes), or roughly 10 percent of the available broadcast airtime. In other words, Trump has already received more coverage in his first 224 days in office than Obama received in his final two years as President.

This is a direct contrast to the media’s coverage of President Obama, which at times looked more like hero worship than journalism.
