Mainstream media pundits continue to pound the Trump administration with negative press. They can’t help themselves; their base would recoil if they suddenly started saying positive things about the president.
Anti-Trump media stories dominate the airwaves. Over 90 percent of the time that liberal news hosts spoke about the current administration, they focused on something negative. The Russia investigation dominated their coverage while Trump’s achievements went almost unnoticed.
According to reports: “Out of 851 total minutes of airtime devoted to the administration, the networks spent almost one-fourth of it (204 minutes, or 24%) on the Russia investigation, eclipsing other major topics such as the economy, immigration reform, and even the gun debate.”
Liberals wanted President Trump to fail. When that didn’t happen, they were forced to make things up to justify their dislike. Democrats feed on anti-Trump stories, it strengthens them in their resolve to be a part of the “resistance.”
The drama plaguing the Trump administration has been manufactured by the media. The hysterical coverage of every tidbit of gossip gives the impression that the White House is in chaos.
The economy is doing wonderful, unemployment is down, and Americans are more confident about their futures than they’ve been for years. Yet networks like CNN and MSNBC have spent more time talking about Michael Wolff’s salacious book about the White House than they have about the economy.
“Among the important substantive issues getting relatively little coverage so far this year: the continued strong economy and jobs (12 minutes); the positive impact of the big tax cuts passed in December (9 minutes); and the fight against al Qaeda and ISIS (a mere 1 minute, 23 seconds)…”
President Trump’s war with the media is founded on real concerns. Journalists are pretending to be delivering the news while instead pandering to their own biases. Someone who tried to learn about the world by watching MSNBC would think that the country is about to collapse.
