For all the complaining the media does about Trump, he’s sure helping to pay their bills right now.
Of all the candidates in the race, who do you think gets the most airtime? Cruz? Bernie? I mean, you’d have to think Hillary due to her numerous scandals and constant appearances that pander to whomever she’s talking to right? Once again, it’s Donald Trump. Trump has dominated the TV time slots during the campaign, racking up impressive numbers.
This also puts into light how much people want to talk about him and see him on TV.
Donald Trump and his surrogates dwarf his competitors when it comes to air time on Fox News Channel.
According to analysis from the right-leaning media watchdog Media Research Center, over the past four weeks, Trump spent a total of 178 minutes being interviewed by Fox. Ted Cruz spent 120 minutes on the network, while John Kasich spent 84 minutes.
When candidate surrogates are added into the mix, Trump’s team spent 397 minutes on air for Fox, Cruz’s crew spent 164 minutes in total and Kasich and his allies spent 105 minutes.
Trump’s time spent on Fox is drastically higher than his time on CNN (106 minutes) and MSNBC (43 minutes.) But Cruz spent more time on CNN (133 minutes) and just 35 minutes on MSNBC. The Ohio governor was close on all of his times, registering 106 minutes on CNN and 100 minutes on MSNBC.
The study, which did not include Democratic candidates, took place March 21 to April 15 during weekdays prime time only and did not include debates or rallies.
Now if this is the case, which is clearly is, wouldn’t that be someone that America wants more of? Maybe as a president? Seems like a big ole yes to me.
