'News' Shows Try to Beat Trump Senseless

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The networks are always and forever going to try and beat this president senseless with negative coverage. It's out of control. During the six weeks since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the inquiry (Sept. 24 through Nov. 5), "the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts churned out 398 minutes of coverage to the Ukraine scandal." Important, yes, but it's "more than three-fifths of all administration news during this period." The tone of overall coverage was 96% negative. That makes the long-running average of 90% look good. The negativity is both bombastic and shameless. Facts about the booming economy drew just 4 minutes and 6 seconds of coverage during these six weeks.
