Conservatives have known the media coverage of President Joe Biden has been heavily biased—and now they have proof.
A new survey found that the three major TV networks gave the Biden administration positive coverage 59 percent of the time—but they portrayed the Trump administration in a negative light 89 percent of the time during the same period in his presidency.
The Media Research Center watched the evening news casts of ABC, NBC, and CBS before compiling its report just as Biden was about to celebrate 100 days in office.

Based on the reports, it looks like the media are celebrating even more than Biden.
News about the new president made up almost one of every five stories the dwindling network TV news shows reported…726 combined minutes of pro-Biden bias.
Take Biden’s handling of the coronavirus.
Biden claimed that when he came to office, there was no vaccine at all.
“It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office,” Biden told CNN’s Anderson Cooper falsely. “There was nothing in the refrigerator.”
Instead of calling Biden on this whopper, the media praised his handling of the coronavirus—often giving him credit for the accomplishments of Donald Trump.
The network news ran 39 different statements evaluating Biden’s handling of the vanishing global pandemic—and 31 of them were positive.

The media also praised Biden’s economic handling of the virus to the hilt.
Biden’s American Rescue Plan was supposed to pump up the U.S. economy after the lockdowns—but “only 9 percent of it goes to COVID,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Still, the media gave Biden’s payoff to Democratic constituents positive coverage 86 percent of the time.
And network news only spent 29 seconds on how the almost $2 trillion plan would add to the $28 trillion national debt.
The only topic where the media criticized the Biden administration is immigration…and only because reporters think Biden’s being too hard on illegal immigrant children.
Since Biden repealed President Trump’s stay-in-Mexico policy, he set a record for the highest number of unaccompanied minors in U.S. custody—5,767 and counting.
The media don’t have a word to say about the coyotes, human smugglers, and drug cartels that control the U.S. border—nothing about the little children they abandon or the women they rape along the way, or the U.S. citizens they kill once they get here.

A few reporters zinged the administration for denying them access to cover the children held in migrant detention facilities, just like they’d covered the “kids in cages” during the Trump years.
But even then, the media gave Biden better coverage than the America First president. While 82 percent of media coverage of the border issue was negative, reporters’ coverage of the Trump administration was 93 percent negative.
The way the networks handle Democrats is always different than the way they treat Republicans, but it’s never been as stark as in the Trump era.
Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, an Emmy Award-winning journalist, compiled a “definitive list” of 132 media lies, errors, and mistakes about Donald Trump during his presidency—and that was before his presidency even ended.
At this point in Trump’s presidency, the media had just begun pushing the discredited “Russian collusion” hoax, based on a fraudulent dossier that multiple Deep State sources “confirmed” was true. Russia would drive the Fake News media’s narrative of Donald Trump for years.
On the other hand, the media’s slobbering love affair with Joe Biden and vice president, Kamala Harris, began before they took office.
The media covered up potentially criminal scandals and embarrassing facts and Biden, while burying all positive news about Trump—and it swung the 2020 election.
A poll of Biden voters in seven swing states found that they had never heard of such major disgraces as the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, sexual assault allegations by former Biden staff Tara Reade, or that Kamala Harris ranked as the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate.
They also said they’d never heard about Donald Trump’s red-hot economic growth, U.S. energy independence thanks to drilling and fracking, or Trump’s historic Middle East peace treaties.
Biden voters told the pollsters that, if they’d heard any of these stories in the news, Trump would have coasted to a second term.
These stories would have flipped the six swing states Trump lost in 2020—Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—and given him an Electoral College win of 311 to 227.
But that only would have happened if the media did their job. And based on the first 100 days of Biden’s administration, they have no plans to start.
