A study was conducted to determine the amount of negative/positive media coverage was dedicated to President Trump. The study found that the negative coverage was higher than believed with 92% negative while only 8% positive.
News Busters reported, “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).”
These results were conducted over the last four months which included the booming economy and yet the media still was nearly all negative. The media seemed to ignore whenever there is positive positive news about President Trump.
The Blaze reported on this study, “According to the analysis, NBC, CBS, and ABC spent only 14 minutes — which equates to 0.7 percent — on the booming economy under Trump, which features record low unemployment, surging wages, small business growth, and record stock market achievements.”
