TV's Trump Coverage Hits 92% Negative

Study: Economic Boom Largely Ignored as TV's Trump Coverage Hits 92% NegativeOctober 9, 2018
In four weeks, Americans go to the polls for the midterm elections that the news media are casting as a referendum on the Trump presidency. Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a President in TV news history — 92 percent negative, vs. just eight percent positive.

For this report, MRC analysts reviewed all 1,007 evening news stories (1,960 minutes of airtime) about the Trump administration on ABC, CBS and NBC from June 1 to September 30, tallying the coverage of each topic and all evaluative comments made by anchors, reporters and non-partisan sources (such as voters or experts).

The results show that, over the past four months, nearly two-thirds of evening news coverage of the Trump presidency has been focused on just five main topics: the Russia investigation; immigration policy; the Kavanaugh nomination; North Korea diplomacy; and U.S. relations with Russia. The networks’ coverage of all of these topics has been highly negative, while bright spots for the administration such as the booming economy received extremely little coverage (less than one percent of the four-month total).

Details:

■ Once again, the ongoing Russia investigation received more evening news coverage (342 minutes) than any other individual topic. This does not include the 86 minutes spent on the Michael Cohen investigation and guilty plea, except for a few minutes talking about the possibility that Cohen would cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Since the beginning of the Trump administration, the three networks have spent 1,975 minutes — nearly 33 hours — on the Russia investigation, or nearly 18 percent of all of their coverage of the Trump presidency. As we have previously reported, virtually all of that coverage has been negative, while almost none of it has focused on any of the controversies involving Mueller or his investigative team.

The high ratings of Hannity, Laura and Tucker keep it from being 100%.

Since we are told soros and his buddies own the media and the demonrat party so what do you expect? All the mind washed idiots that wish to live in a Venezuela type country I guess. Since demonrats are only money mongers and don't really have any kind of hobbies, and hate dogs and other pets, they really have nothing to lose in a total communist country. All they like other than money is power and control over everyone else's lives that is their hobby.

The media loved Donald Trump until he ran against Queen Killary.

I don't mean to be negative, but something is up with his hair lately.

Sad to get so old so fast for such a vain guy. #-o

Ridiculous...

I'll bet you couldn't get 90%+ agreement in a poll on what day of the week it is...
Sadly, the majority of media outlets are driven by such data rather than just reporting news.
