No honey moon for Trump with the slanted press, or says the story. 88% hostile press coverage for the Trump admin. So Trump's first month in office has been reported on with a hostile slant, again this is what the story says.


There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office.
www.washingtontimes.com...

The media in this story represents the pillars of news.
And did they create news, the measure of the study was on comments made by reporters and "non partisan" talking heads. A little over half of the created news from the above mentioned news sources was hostile toward Trump, so he was popular to talk about. Again 88% of the news that the media created was from a negative slant. Wonder why?


The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for the month.

“Our measure of media tone excludes soundbites from identified partisans, focusing instead on tallying the evaluative statements made by reporters and the nonpartisan talking heads (experts and average citizens) included in their stories,” write Rich Noyes, research director for the conservative press watchdog, and fellow analyst Mike Ciandella.

Of course it was.

All the media outlets planned for HRC to win.
They all lost their minds when she didn't.
Just like spoiled children, they are throwing a temper tantrum.

But they are also the ones who coddled the previous POTUS, and buried the Fast and Furious scandal, the Benghazi nightmare, and a host of other atrocities.

Go figure.

No, no - they meant 99.88%. Just a typo...

If I were a owner of the news, or I mean if I owned a company that had a news outlet, I would have fired someone for crying on the air about a candidate loosing.

What I saw on election night was telling. And heads should have rolled. It really did show what the talking heads think of their piss poor jobs and how they do them. This also shows the disrespect to the average new "consumer".

"Hostile Press" as opposed to what, investigative journalism?

Make news, fake news, distracting everyone away from the real global agenda.

Best way to do that is, pick a fight.

True, but the powers that be still will not release all the papers to the JFK murder. We in the public are too sensitive to handle the raw truth.

So we need a big smarty pants to tell us what to think. Thank goodness, right?

So 88% of the media shills for a political party.

Leaving the other side with 12%.

Unfair,Unbalanced, and full blown propaganda outlets.

The fourth estate doesn't exist.

I am sick of the press, either on TV, or on aol or yahoo.... The Press IS Rude. They all need professionally spanked. I really dislike Megan Kelly and Anderson Cooper. No more free easy hand out news stories for them. They are going to have to WORK for their stories now.

The Democrats that milked the system, ie. milked the working people, for their free hand outs. They are going to have to Get a JOB. Democrats can exchange those Obama phones in for alarm clocks. In the past eight years my family was used and abused by the socialism that took place. We paid taxes for the RICH and the POOR. We struggled so hard to hang onto what we worked so hard for. No family vacations could be afforded since our health care became crap after Obama care ruined it for us. Staycations with no money for house repairs.

I am so thrilled we are getting away from the past Democratic Obama style. Give Mr. President Trump a chance to fix things. I applaud what he has done so far. Be nice to his wife and daughter. Don't be disrespectful. He won office because more than half the nation wanted this new program. It insults us all.... to hear the Democrats whine and be rude. Maybe you should say Thank you! and get to work. After all we have been patient paying all of your bills for ten years.


The only area I feel Mr. Trump needs to reconsider at the moment is global warming and the pollution problem.

The media has shown their bias and are now irrelevant. They can scream and shout and occasionally even tell the truth, but in the new age of information and online access, they are as applicable as a diet sodas in Michael Moore's refrigerator.

What do you think happens when you make enemies of the media? They roll over and let you insult them?

But I get the impression he thinks he is always right. So, why sometimes he comes over as a little itsy bitsy thin skinned ???

Trump brings all this down on himself with his Putin bromance, grabbing all them p....ies, lying and bragging about himself.

What do you expect when you act like white trash. He's not blameless. I think the press cut him way to much slack.

The press only does what it is told. And it isn't working anymore. The Bill Clinton play book no longer works.

Nice very rare photo. And the press, I mean their controllers will not push the issue. But with 50 years coming up maybe they will release.... Who am I kidding.

I can't think of a pres that didn't seem thin skinned. Maybe W Bush. Obama was very delicate.

Trump will not allow any disrespect, and he has been right an awful lot. And when he is wrong people get fired.

Seems like he is doing just fine. What a speech in front of Congress!
Looks to me like he is beating the media no matter what fake nonsense they throw at him.

Sorry for off topic. See JFK, The Smoking Gun. They portray it as an accident ultimately, the rest of the documentary is all too revealing.

Difficult to find on YouTube, heres a snippet...
