    negative coverage... per Harvard study.. not only that.. but the study authors warn that continuing to be so obviously biased, is not going to go well for journalists. Fox.. has actually been.. imagine this.. the most fair and balanced with ta 52/48 negative spin. Meanwhile CNN and NBC have been 93/7. The study also notes that despite all this whining from major media outlets no one has actually changed their minds.... lol. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news...ignal&utm_campaign=pushnotify&utm_medium=push

    Not surprising the MSM is out to hang him.

    Of course at the same time he often has made it easy for them

    What's surprising to me is that even the Fox coversge is 52% negative verses 48% positive.

    I would never have figured Fox would have actually done more negative reporting than postive. If you were to believe the snowflakes Fox is supposed to be totally in the tank for Trump......guess not

    Although I am pretty peeved at Fox right now........... that biased reporting is why I will not watch those other networks. CNN, etc = FAKE NEWS all the time. I don't need it.

    If so, it makes sense. Who has been more negative than Trump himself...during the campaigns and even after he was 'elected'?? Did any of the other Candidates use Twitter to malign the other candidates? Did any of the others have pet names for the others? Trump has caused his own problems. Feel sorry for him if you want. He gets what he asks for. Look at how he talked about the most all of the news sources other than Fox News. He can relate to Fox News because they are a bunch of sexist pervs.

    And they don't need you. You hate to hear the truth. So I'd encourage you to keep watching Hannity.

    I think this is a clear indication that the MSM has lost credibility. They well on their way to having their propaganda turn people in the other direction.

    Agreed. We have plenty of leftist liars right here on PJ. Why watch people who actually profit off their dishonesty?

    Do you think that the media shouldn't report facts if they portray the president in a negative light?

    Because you seem to be suggesting that the media is discredited for its negative coverage of Trump without addressing whether that negative coverage is simply rooted in reality.

    Yes of course the MSM should be arbiters of what is a negative thing versus just reporting you know the facts.

    I honestly think that the concept of negative vs positive is so subjective that a difference like that has. Got to ge in the margin of error.

    Hello? The facts themselves - what Trump says and does - are negative.

    Nonsense. Facts are neutral. How one judges the facts may be negative but that does not equate to the need to apply that negative spin when reporting. One can say, Trump fired coney, without opining as to the reasons or results.

    And, one can say the Trump administration repeatedly contradicted itself about the reason for Comey's firing, and that would both be factual and reflect negatively on Trump.
