While President Donald Trump was tirelessly working to make America great again in his first 100 days of his presidency, he was destroyed by the press.
And a recent study proves he was treated unfairly in the news.
A Harvard University study revealed that 80 percent of media coverage regarding Trump’s presidency had a negative spin.
Harvard professor of government and the press Thomas E. Patterson, who led the study, said Trump’s administration is “setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president.”
But it’s no surprise to Trump supporters, who have been saying all along that the mainstream media is biased against the president.
The study examined media sources including CNN, CNS, Fox News, NBC, the Financial Times, BBC, ARD (Germany), the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.
For the entire news cycle during those first 100 days, 41 percent of coverage was about Trump.
Patterson agreed that Trump’s media complaints area valid, saying, “the sheer level of negative coverage gives weight to Trump’s contention, one shared by his core constituency, that the media are hellbent on destroying his presidency.”
Trump commonly condemns the media’s biased reporting of his. Most recently, over his claims the former President Barack Obama illegally wiretapped phones in Trump Tower.
While majority of the mainstream media lashed out at Trump for what they considered an absurd accusation, even Democrats had to admit he was right.
The Horn News reported Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich supported Trump’s claims, saying, “I can vouch for the fact that extracurricular surveillance does occur, regardless of whether it is officially approved.”
And now this Harvard study finally proves what Trump has been saying all along.
The mainstream media is doing a disservice to Americans with fake news and opinionated claims that ultimately shield the public from making their own assertions about the workings of our government.
