Study: Summer Trump Coverage 91% Negative



By: Jason Devaney
12 Sep 2017

Coverage of President Donald Trump and his administration has been 91 percent negative during nightly news broadcasts over the summer, a new study found.

The Media Research Center examined mentions of Trump and his top officials from June 1 through Aug. 31 on ABC's World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News and found that just 9 percent of the coverage was positive.

The MRC tallied 4,418 minutes of coverage of the Trump administration since Trump took office on Jan. 20, which equaled almost 74 hours — 39 percent of all evening news coverage. The organization notes that the three aforementioned news networks spent a combined 59 hours covering former President Barack Obama during 2015 and 2016, which was 10 percent of all coverage.

MRC calculated earlier this year that Trump coverage on the three major networks was 89 percent negative in the first three months of his presidency.

Over the summer, 415 minutes of broadcast time was spent covering the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia — and 94 percent of that was negative. Coverage of repealing and replacing Obamacare and Trump's response to the deadly Charlottesville riots last month was each 97 percent negative.

In fairness, coverage of Kim Jong-un, Martin Shkreli, and the Somali pirates has been pretty negative too.

Considering Trump is running a level of douche-baggery approaching 96%, I'd say these media channels are being overly kind.  And it's kind of cute to omit Fox from the analysis, given that Fox is the highest rated cable news station.

Anyway, Trump keeps telling us he is bypassing the media by going straight to the people through twitter.  His twitter feed is 99% negative, so that's where he oughtta start cleaning things up...

I suppose they were only examining news outlets that featured actual journalists.

The Somali pirates run a tighter ship than the Trump White House.
