A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.

Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.

They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations

Trump has repeatedly claimed that his treatment by the media is unprecedented in its hostility.

This study suggests that, at least when it comes to recent history, he’s right.

Harvard Study Reveals HUGE Extent of Anti-Trump Media Bias

This just in: water is wet, the sky is blue, and the media is anti-trump.

I gotta admit even I was a little surprised at these numbers....wow

Look at them on these graphs...the second relates to coverages of the first 100 days so includes the inauguration and lead up before trump turned into the medias creation of evil incarnate.





These numbers mirror darkly the statistics of Mao, Stalin, Pot, Castro, Chavez or any of the great despots....
Meaning 93% positive coverage for the aforementioned dictators is every bit as disconcerting as 93% negative.

Can liberals see nothing good in Trumps actions?
Well, imguess they can see for a couple of seconds ever minute he is not evil....but 93% of the time he is doing bad things..

Keep it up media...your march into obsolescence is stunning and hilarious.

For example?

The reason the media reports are negative is because almost everything Trump actually "does" is contrary, controversial, dangerous, objectionable and morally questionable.

The purpose of the "press" isn't to be cheerleaders for Trump.

I was just thinking, at what time does the bias become so one sided partisan before it crosses the line into political advertising? Maybe the FEC should look into this?

Not surprising at all to be honest. Instead of being able to google Trump and find out important things the government is working on. You instead get a list of articles like:

Trump is a racist
Trump is an Orange babbling idiot
Trump hurt my feelings, he should be impeached
Trump is a Russian agent
Trump is broke and using the presidency to fill his pockets again

I mean can we get some real news again at some point. I understand the butt-hurt is at an all-time high, but some people like to be informed on whats going on in our government. Not hear everything that offends your typical snowflake.

Nice to see the comparison with Obama and others. Obama was the perfect globalist puppet, so of course the MSM gave him praises. And still do! Even though his administration was incredibly corrupt and he sold out American interests for favors from his constituents.

This whole "anonymous source saw a memo and reports blah blah blah" is total and complete BS. That source committed a felony by revealing that information then... and New York Times and others have lost all credibility to me now. They will do anything to publish an anti-Trump story.

BTW many people are developing a more favorable look on Trump when they realize the propaganda and horsesh*t these MSM outlets are spewing, I hope it backfires but unfortunately I think many more feed right into it and don't have a clue about journalistic integrity, legitimate sources, or the FACTS

In your highly questionable opinion that is.

Correlation does not prove causation. Your study doesn't take into account buffoonery. Trump's level of buffoonery is causing increased levels of coverage. Everyday I wake up thinking how many times with he jam his foot into his mouth. Just the way he described his conversations with Comey really makes you think he's guilty of obstruction. It's not solely the media's fault!

Americans had a choice between a "douche bag" and a "turd sandwich". They elected the "turd sandwich". Now people are upset when the media reports that the "turd sandwich" is doing "#ty things"!

The FEC long ago ended its "oversight" of liberal news...
The problem is so innate in the halls of journalism schools across the world that there can be no alteration to their liberal dogma..

When you are dogmatic with a religious fervor as the liberal journalists tend to be then all logic and numbers are ignored...

The progressive journalist, completely immersed in all things liberal, is no more aware of this than a fish is aware he is in water...

As a person about as far from a Trump supporter as you can get, I agree.

The media reporting on Trump has been mostly negative. How else are you supposed to report the rolling dumpster fire that's been this presidency since January?

When the media starts covering up the constant failures of Trump and starts talking roses and sunshine about this admin, that's when you should worry.

Is every single one of these a failure?
Or just 93%

I doubt this will give any Trump critic pause to consider, more likely they will see it as validation.

So, if I was to go around poking everyone with a sharp stick, and the media covered my actions negatively, is it the media's fault? Or me with my sharp stick?

No the media just doesn't like Trump. It's as simple as that. Obama handed the richest people in the world a Trillion dollars of our tax payers money. Ripped apart 2 countries with his foreign policy. Mandated with a penalty, the worst healthcare system the U.S. has seen in my lifetime. Used the IRS as his own attack dog for political gain. Increased taxes, but doubled the national debt and is still praised by the media.

Did the Obama critics ever pause to consider their actions? No?
But we should, right?
Lol at the never ending hypocrisy from the right.

You don't get it.

The reasons are about NWO financial and social control.

Yeah, whatever. Still waiting for those examples of all the good stuff that Trump has done that the media isn't reporting.

I would suspect that without FOX News, which now is waning in its ability to bestow adoration and unwavering loyalty on Trump, those statistics would be even more dire for our Liar in Chief.

I wouldn't exactly classify EO's as a win. An executive order isn't legislation. Though I'm sure Trump would tell you different.
