The Media

Harvard study examines media coverage of Trump
OK, no surprise that most of the media coverage of Mr. Trump is critical. Given his personal propensities for blustering, inconsistencies, and confrontational statements, a good deal of this has to be expected. After all, many conservatives and people who voted for him wish he'd handle a lot of things better than he has. But the level of near total negativity in the media tells us that it's more than really justifiable reporting of what he does and says. It betrays the eagerness to undercut his presidency in every way. This is not responsible journalism. Interesting that Fox comes out near 50/50 on negative/positive on Trump. So maybe the "balanced" thing really means something? --Del
