It’s already been established that the overwhelming majority of the mainstream media’s coverage of Trump is negative. According to a study of Trump’s first 100 days in office, 89 percent of Trump related coverage was negative among the “big three” (ABC, CBS, NBC). On CNN in particular, all the coverage is negative – and it’s all they cover.
There’s an understanding in the news business that any story — pro or con — about President Trump grabs eyeballs, but CNN has taken it to a new level. A new Media Research Center survey of a full day of CNN coverage found that 92 percent of the news time was spent on Trump stories.
And the angle: CNN featured 96 critics and just seven supporters.
“After excluding commercials, teases and promos, our analysts found 13 hours, 27 minutes of actual news coverage, an average of just over 40 minutes per hour. Of that, a whopping 92 percent (12 hours, 19 minutes) was devoted to the Trump presidency, with a mere 68 minutes — a little more than three minutes per hour — devoted to all of the other news of the day,” said the report.
And of course, these are the same people who will politicize any poll showing Trump’s approval slipping – as if they weren’t the reason for it.
