Trump-hating media 'at war' with him

Trump and ABC News reporterNine out of every ten news stories about President Trump in his first year in office was negative, according to data compiled by a media watchdog.

ABC, NBC and CBS ran pretty much all weekend with coverage of President Trump's alleged vulgar language in the oval office.

 "This is the CBS Evening News with Jeff Glor," began a recent broadcast. "Good evening, President Trump is being quoted as making profane, racially-charged comments in the Oval Office today…"

Criticism of the president is hardly new ground for the networks. Rich Noyes of the Media Research Center says in 2017 one out of every three minutes of their news broadcasts were about the president and 90 percent of the stories were negative.

 "Between the amount of the coverage and the incredibly negative tone of the coverage," says Noyes, "I would say this was the year that the media went to war with the president of the United States."

Much of the bias was up front and obvious but some coverage that sounded balanced and neutral at first blush had undercurrents of bias that left viewers with negative impressions.

"Finding victims of this policy or that policy, people offended by this statement or that statement," Noyes observes, "reporters themselves going out and criticizing the president."

Noyes says the negative news coverage is starting to push the needle on President Trump's ratings.

"It's just cementing people into their camps,"he predicts. "It may be having a little bit of erosion in Trump supporters. It's hard to hear that kind of information day in and day out and not have it affect you."

Noyes says Republicans have always fought the battle for public opinion with one hand tied behind their backs but they are fighting "full-on advocacy" from the liberal media - just in time for 2018 midterms.
