Study Proves Trump Was Right About the Negative MSM Coverage: Here Are the Numbers

Published

on

It’s hard to tell if the media is ignorant to, or enraged by, the fact that Donald Trump largely rose to popularity amid a slew of negative media coverage and a willingness to call out the far-left, propaganda outlets that comprise the vast majority of our legacy news outlets.

Whatever the case, they’ve completely doubled-down, continuing to destroy public trust in their ability to objectively report on this administration–or anything else for this matter.

Never one to shy away from calling them out for their blatant lies and ideologically-driven coverage, Trump unleashed a vicious rant against the MSM on Twitter last night, which will no doubt give them plenty to feign outrage over for at least a few upcoming news cycles.

Take it away, Mr. President:

Naturally, he will no doubt be accused of wild exaggeration…but he’s most likely correct on the numbers, as Town Hall explains:

The 90% figure is corroborated by two studies, one taken in 2017 and one taken in 2018, conducted by the Media Research Center which “studied all broadcast evening news coverage of the President from January 1 through April 30, and found 90 percent of the evaluative comments about Trump were negative — precisely the same hostile tone we documented in 2017.”

As noted MRC’s Richard Noyes, President Trump’s approval ratings actually increased during 2018. In order to conduct the study, MRC “examined all 1,065 network evening news stories about President Trump and top members of his administration during the first four months of this year. The coverage totaled a whopping 1,774 minutes, or roughly one-third of all evening news airtime.”

Even studies that show a lower amount of negative coverage on the President, which are difficult to believe if you’ve flipped on any network news channel over the last two years, still demonstrate that despite high polling numbers, the news is rarely favorable:

The Washington Post recently noted that number may be inflated, citing two polls that showed only 62% of media coverage of President Trump is negative. Still far higher than his predecessors. But, it is unclear whether that polling included news coverage of any member of the administration as well.

The President’s tweet storm, Town Hall notes, came after a meeting with A.G. Sulzberger, the publisher of the New York Times, well-known for their biased and often downright fake news.

Sulzberger released this statement:

I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous…I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people. I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.

What the media refuse to acknowledge is President Trump doesn’t bash journalism, he bashes the undeniably biased coverage from outlets that rarely held President Obama accountable for anything, apparently attempting to bolster the claim he would eventually make that he had a “scandal-free presidency”.

The reporter’s sources Obama literally put in jail would most likely disagree.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
