The media’s coverage of President Trump has been overwhelmingly negative, more than three times more critical than the initial coverage of former President Barack Obama and twice that of former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
The Pew Research Center said that the early coverage of Trump was 62 percent negative. By comparison, Obama’s coverage was just 20 percent negative.
“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,” said Pew.
Why, in any realistic, rational, open minded, deductive thinking, and/or reality based reasoning, would or could it possibly be otherwise?
Seeing the media coverage of Trump’s record one would never know that the economy is thriving (even before tax reform gave it a boost), unemployment is vanishing, ISIS is eradicated from Iraq and the respect for the US is growing around the world.
The only thing the media reliably provides us is ignorance.
