A new study released by the Media Research Center has yet again revealed the unbelievable degree of liberal bias against President Trump in the news media of the major networks.
The study accomplished this measurement by noting the kind of adjectives the major news networks use to describe the president’s state of mind.
This is truly ridiculous.
“MRC analysts looked at every broadcast evening news story about the President from January 1 through September 10, and tallied the various words reporters have used this year to describe Trump’s state of mind, grouping them by category,” Newsbusters reports. The result: “TV news reporters have saturated the airwaves with subjective language about the President’s emotional state, most of it casting him as an out-of-control hothead.”
MRC found that the second most likely description of Trump’s state of mind was “frustrated/aggravated/dismayed” (30 times), followed by “afraid/worried/anxious” (14).Trending:
Trump was described by the three networks as “happy” only 23 times over that period, and “confident” and “calm” just 6 times and once, respectively.
An MRC study published in March detailed the 10 to 1 negative to positive “spin” coverage of Trump on the same networks during the first two months of 2018, findings which aligned with their previous study:Advertisement - story continues below
Our analysts also measured the spin of coverage by tallying all evaluative statements about the President and his top officials uttered by anchor, reporters or non-partisan news sources such as experts or voters. Out of a total of 712 such evaluative comments, only 65 were positive (9%) vs. 647 which were negative, or 91 percent. (Neutral statements, as well as the comments of partisans, were excluded from this measure).
This is essentially unchanged from the 90 percent negative coverage we documented for all of 2017, and matches the 91 percent negative coverage we tallied during the 2016 general election campaign. Without question, no President has ever been on the receiving end of such hostile coverage, for such a sustained period of time, as has Trump — and the midterm elections are still eight months away.
As you can see, the media clearly has it out for Trump, doing their best to paint him as some sort of raging mess of a human being who is hellbent on bringing destruction with him everywhere he goes.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth. He’s just the kind of guy who doesn’t take flack from folks. He boldly stands up for himself, especially when the left tries putting on the pressure and launches personal attacks.
The fact that someone wouldn’t just take their verbal abuse is shocking to liberals who aren’t used to such shenanigans. Well, they better get used to it.
