Media Alert: 91 Percent of Trump News Negative
Sure the media has learned its lesson.
Remember the editor of the New York Times apologizing for his Trump coverage.
Arthur Sulzberger, editor of The New York Times has vowed to become a better media outlet. Apparently Sulzberger figured out that lying about the news is not exactly news.
There are few things as sure as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west, and that is the media’s hatred of Conservatives and Republicans. So despite what the Arthur Sulzberger said, the lamestream media will continue to hate us. They can’t be trusted.
Nevertheless, as FOX News reports,
The publisher of The New York Times penned a letter to readers Friday promising that the paper would “reflect” on its coverage of this year’s election while rededicating itself to reporting on “America and the world” honestly.
Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., the paper’s embattled publisher, appealed to Times readers for their continued support.
“We cannot deliver the independent, original journalism for which we are known without the loyalty of our subscribers,” the letter states.

You be the judge. However, a new report shows that the media remains much the same.
According to a new Media Research Center study, in the last three months, 91 percent of the time evening news coverage of President Donald Trump on the main broadcast stations was negative.
Perhaps more interesting were statistics surrounding the amount of news coverage of President Trump. As by the end of August, MRC reported that nearly 40 percent of coverage during the nightly news on ABC, NBC and CBS consisted of stories about the Trump White House or the administration.
This reports is great news!
Consider the media onslaught of President Trump. 40 percent coverage, and 91 percent bad news, and yet Trump still pummels the media. Thus, their strategy is clear. All bad Trump news all the time. They do have one problem: their reports don’t jibe with reality.
The public has become much more sophisticated about news, including where they get news and what constitutes news. Endless pounding has worked in the past, and possibly could work now. Except ironically, Trump has one “trump” card.
President Trump is a one-man media outlet.
Without Trump, the media dies. Perhaps the trick is on them?
Consider that President Trump dominates the media, as his 40 percent coverage indicates. But when you are the news, you can determine who gets the scoops.
Once President Trump has the media firmly by the balls (or the p*ssy, take your pick), he can then squeeze…hard.
We mocked the media, when one CNN anchor asked that President Trump be banned from the social media platform.
Senior tattletale correspondent at CNN, Brian Stelter, did what he does best on Sunday.
After President Trump tweeted a GIF of himself body-slamming a person with a photoshopped CNN logo on his head, Stelter took to email to request that Trump be booted from Twitter altogether.
The Daily Wire has modeled, what can only be assumed, the closest replica of the email exchange between Stelter and Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter:
Dear Jack [Dorsey]:
So, so, so, we were over there, right? And we weren’t doing nothing, okay? *wipes nose on sleeve* We were just doing journalism, fer real. And then-and then-and then Donald came over, okay? A-a-a-and he hit us with this tweet, see? Look at it! *wipes nose on other sleeve* You need to kick him off the Twitter playground, cuz-cuz-cuz he’s not s’posed to hit us. You said so.
Twitter’s (probable) hilarious response:
As a wise man once said, “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” Do you think we haven’t been watching what is going on? Do you think we didn’t see how quickly you moved on after one of your own practically killed Steve Scalise? Do you think we haven’t seen your entire gang endlessly taunt Donald with lies and fake news? We also saw you pay those other kids to pretend to kill Donald. You crybabies started it and now that Donald is tweeting out a harmless joke at your expense, I find it pathetic that you can’t take it. Grow up.
I hope you get hit by a train.
Hypothetical, but likely not far from the truth.
As I have discussed about Trump’s tweets, they drive news, as well as public opinion. Whole evening broadcasts are dedicated to his tweets, albeit negative coverage.
However, who determines negative anymore? Certainly not the fake news media. Though the Left may consider the coverage “negative”, their coverage often provides insight into the Leftist dogma. These days, that dogma backfires consistently.
I wrote recently of Trump’s ability to garner discussion around heretofore taboo topics.
