Back in the 60s I took some journalism classes in a University that had won several Pulitzer prizes in journalism. There we learned the "5 Ws" in journalism...

According to the principle of the Five Ws, a report can only be considered complete if it answers these questions starting with an interrogative word:[1]
  • Who
  • What
  • When
  • Where
  • Why
Five Ws - Wikipedia

So what has happened to that objective characteristic of "journalists"?

So now we have a major news outlet because their owner is running for President... will not cover
Democrats ...BUT continue to promote negative news about Trump.
Media Trump Hatred Shows In 92% Negative Coverage Of His Presidency: Study
It viewed some 1,007 evening news stories about the Trump White House on ABC, CBS and NBC from June 1 to Sept. 30. That's the equivalent of about 32.7 hours of coverage, by TV standards an eternity of news time.
What they found was, as Trump himself might say, sad: "Over the summer, the broadcast networks have continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a president in TV news history — 92% negative, vs. just 8% positive."

Tell that to the black community..
A recent, admittedly controversial Rasmussen Reports poll showed African-American approval of Trump at 36 percent.
Even 20 percent African-American support for Trump would all but dismantle Democratic-party presidential hopes for 2020.
Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election with 88 percent of the black vote. That was about a six-point falloff from Barack Obama’s share of the black vote in 2012.
Trump’s Black Support -- African American Vote Might Turn 2020 Towards Trump | National Review

Are you a racist? You don't like the fact Trump appeals to the black voter???

Tell that to the Latino community..
In the 2020 election, Trump seems likely to get between 25%-30% of the Latino vote. A recent poll by Telemundo found that 1 in 4 American Latinos would vote to re-elect him.
Millions of Latinos are Trump supporters. Here's what they think.

Again.. are you a racist? You against immigrants??? Latinos?

I don't care who Trump appeals to. He is a negative person who constantly trolls others, including the press. They troll him back.

Ah... excellent question because THAT is how journalism WAS taught before "opinion" i.e... "HoW" which is what you are seeing now.
Case in point yesterday's meeting between Trump and Macron.

Headlines: Trump barrels into NATO summit, clashes with France’s Macron
Trump began his first of two days at the NATO conference by harshly rebuking Macron, once arguably his closest European ally among foreign leaders, for recently saying NATO was experiencing "brain death" as a result of diminished U.S. leadership in the alliance under Trump.
Trump barrels into NATO summit, clashes with France’s Macron

I saw that press conference between Trump and Macron and there WERE NO CLASHES!!!
In response to a question posed to Trump by a U.S. journalist who asked whether France should do more to take ISIS fighters captured in the Middle East, the U.S. president said he would pass that question on to Macron, asking him in a light-hearted tone if he would like “some nice ISIS fighters”.
Macron laughed WITH Trump when Trump said...“one of the greatest non-answers I have ever heard” at a joint news conference on Tuesday.
But again the headlines totally bias the news. Sad by the "HOW" colors the reporting with the subjective opinion of the reporter.

Not much a "divisive country" as you think.

People listen ABC, CBS and NBC but at the same time enjoy the great freedom, peace and economy under this administration.

They are constantly in a dilemma, but at the end they know president Trump and his administration are doing more benefit for America as never happened with recent presidents.

People know Democrat candidates are weak, just imagine Pocahontas having a discussion with Putin, she will be the ridiculous.

People watched how miserable were the efforts of ABC, CBS and NBC to put down the president with the infamous Russian collusion, and how today their support for impeachment is making them another chicken little...

Eventually, at the time of voting, president Trump will be re-elected..
