|Even Trump's hair is providing negative coverage.|
The early television news reviews of the Trump presidency are in and they are not good — not even on Fox News.
This is based on a new analysis by Media Tenor, an international, independent media research firm. Trained analysts examined 370 news stories about Donald Trump on the “NBC Nightly News,” “CBS Evening News” and Fox News “Special Report” between Jan. 20 and Feb. 17.
Why focus on these outlets? Although the audience for the evening national newscasts has shrunk, they consistently draw well over 20 million viewers and shape the political discourse on social media, local television news and elsewhere. Television news remains a highly important source of information among the citizens most likely to vote. Fox News has an especially devoted following among conservatives.
Here is what this analysis found. Only 3 percent of the reports about Trump that aired on NBC and CBS were positive, while 43 percent were negative and 54 percent were neutral.
In another shocking statistic mass shootings, automobile accidents, and natural disasters ALSO tend to receive mostly negative coverage.
How else are the televisions news outlets supposed to cover this cancer on our nation's soul?
If it makes Trump feel any better he is still receiving glowing coverage from Breitbart, the Russian media, and Sarah Palin's Facebook page.
So there's that.
