Tammy Bruce recently appeared on the Hannity show and addressed the topic of liberal media bias. According to Bruce, we needed a president like Trump to show the stark contrast to the positive media coverage Obama enjoyed.

Tammy Bruce: Donald Trump Has Exposed ‘Extreme Difference’ in Media Coverage
Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce said on “Hannity” that after President Trump’s first year, she believes the American people now fully understand the long-held biases of the mainstream media.
She responded to a new Pew Research Center study, which found that the media’s coverage of the Trump administration’s first two months was 62 percent negative, more than three times higher than in 2009 when Barack Obama took office.
“About six-in-ten stories on Trump’s early days in office had a negative assessment, about three times more than in early coverage for Obama and roughly twice that of Bush and Clinton. Coverage of Trump’s early time in office moved further away from a focus on the policy agenda and more toward character and leadership,” the report from Pew stated…
Bruce said this agenda is nothing new, but the emergence of Donald Trump has been the “perfect juxtaposition” against eight years of coverage of Barack Obama.
“It’s been exposed. … I think this has been the media’s nature. I think it has done damage to this country for several generations,” said Bruce, arguing that the bias goes back to Walter Cronkite’s coverage of the Vietnam War.
