President Trump is right: His media coverage is mostly negative

October 2, 2017

This is a shocker! Despite some who can’t figure out if they’re supposed to wind their ass or scratch their watch, the major media coverage of President Trump is only 5% positive.

President Donald Trump frequently complains about media coverage of his administration, and a study released Monday confirms his suspicion: Most of it has been negative.
The Pew Research Center, in a content analysis of the early days of the Trump presidency, found that 62 percent of the coverage was negative and only 5 percent was positive.
In contrast, President Barack Obama’s coverage in early 2009 was 42 percent positive and 20 percent negative, the study said.
Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush had higher negative than positive coverage early in their administrations, but not nearly to Trump’s degree. Clinton had 28 percent negative coverage and 27 percent positive in 1993, while Bush had 28 percent negative and 22 percent positive in 2001.


So I guess the question is “why.” Did journalists just wake up one day and think, “I’m going to look for and report nothing but negative and bias articles about President Trump?”  Or has the media incrementally, just a little at a time been moving “left?” Hiring left-leaning so-called journalists and putting former Obama administration officials on the payroll. It’s a fact that a large number of media folks are married to or related in some way to current politicians or political activists.  That all I wanted to say. I grow weary trying to have a dialogue with folks who refuse to listen to reason. That doesn’t mean to agree with everything I say and think. But to think rationally and use a little common sense which seems to be out of reach for some.

Have a great week dear friends.
