    Why would anyone try to push the idea that the media isn't in the tank for Dimwingers? I'm sure we will have some morons try to make that case in this thread, but they won't be able to bring any data to support their asinine position.

    I'm also sure there will be whining and crying about who is reporting these facts......



    TV’s Trump News: Three-Fourths Impeachment and 93% Negative

    In the first 100 days since House Democrats began their impeachment push on September 24, ABC, CBS and NBC have aggressively aided the effort. A Media Research Center analysis finds the Big Three evening newscasts have battered the President with 93% negative coverage and promoted impeachment at the expense of nearly all other Trump news.

    At the same time, the broadcast networks donated at least 124 hours of wall-to-wall live coverage as they pre-empted regular programming in favor of House Democrat-led impeachment activities. On the other hand, the networks’ frenzy over impeachment has meant the Democratic presidential candidates have been barely visible on the evening newscasts, even though voting is due to begin in just three weeks. Details:

    ■ Bad news for President Trump: During impeachment, the networks kept up the same relentless negativity toward President Trump that they first displayed during the 2016 presidential campaign (see here, here and here for past reports, as well as a description of our methodology).

    From September 24 through January 1, we tallied 1,053 evaluative comments about the President, 93% of which were negative. (If you can’t wait 700 words, scroll down now to find out how TV news spun their coverage of the 2020 Democrats. Spoiler: It’s NOT 93% negative.)

    It’s pretty clear by now that reporters aren’t going to reward the President with much good press even for obvious achievements such as the strong economy or the victory over ISIS terrorists in Syria (including the killing of their elusive leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi).

    But impeachment has increased the sheer amount of this negative coverage, as well as meant even less airtime for the administration’s policy achievements.

    ■ Impeachment has taken over the evening news: In the first 100 days since Pelosi announced the start of the House impeachment inquiry on September 24 (through January 1), ABC, CBS and NBC have generated a combined 849 minutes of evening news coverage about the subject.

    For comparison, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was named back on May 17, 2017, it took those same newscasts more than twice as long (until December 29 of that year, or 226 days) to register the same amount of airtime for the Russia investigation. In other words, the networks are spending more than twice as much airtime on the Ukraine probe as they did on the Russia probe.

    Nixon had near 100% negative coverage, and Jeffery Dahmer's negative coverage was even worse. Right wingers are still upset about that.

    That's OK, Nostra, America isn't stupid. Everyone knows the MSM news here is bullcrap. All the leftwing anti-Trump rhetoric only works on leftwing tards helping to make them feel good ahead of another historic loss.

    ITMT, out in the real world, just last night, Trump and Melania were cheered to standing ovations of throngs of supporters at a monday night football game as thousands cheered USA! USA! And FOUR MORE YEARS.


    trump cheered - Bing

    Trump cheered loudly at college football title game

    It is shameful, that Trump makes it easy for them is no excuse.
