TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW … NEWSFLASH, THE MSM IS BIAS AND HAS AN AGENDA AGAINST TRUMP.
According to a Harvard University study, the MSM bias against President Donald Trump is huge and unprecedented. If it seems like the MSM has it out for President Trump and reports pretty much every thing he does as negative, that is because they do. Just look at the charts below and see how the MSM reports on topics in a positive or negative slant and then take a look at how Trump compares to other presidents, especially Obama.
Keep this in mind when you watch the news. They are no longer reporting it, they are slanting it to fit their liberal, left-wing agenda. The MSM was AWOL for Obama’s eight years and the endless scandals like Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS-gate, let alone the lies of Obamacare. But for Trump, they do not even give him a chance. The MSM is working in lockstep with the Democrat party as their propaganda arm. Remember this, especially at election time.
A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.
Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.
It found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:
In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.
They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.
Every outlet was negative more often than positive.
Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.
THEY DON’T CALL IT THE DEMOCRAT-MEDIA COMPLEX FOR NOTHING …
As reported at The Washington Free Beacon, former Obama press secretary, Josh Earnest, was named an NBC News and MSNBC political analyst. What a surprise. The main stream media and their liberal agenda has been in bed with the Democrat party for years. However, maybe never so much and maybe has never carried the water so much and defended a president’s agenda, than Barack Obama. This should be an easy transition for Josh Earnest, as his role as Obama’s press secretary has pretty much groomed him to be a liberal media shill. As Twitchy opines, this is yet another move on the part of the MSM to try and make themselves look legit, by hiring a guy who’s sole job was to cover Obama’s backside. Way to go media!!!
This is the liberal bias that we can expect as NBC’s newest political analyst
Former President Barack Obama’s final press secretary, Josh Earnest, was named an NBC News and MSNBC political analyst on Monday morning.
Earnest, a Kansas City native, served as White House press secretary from 2014 to 2017.
Axios obtained an internal memo from NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin announcing the hire.
He joins a string of recent former White press secretaries who have joined network and cable news outlets after leaving government, the Hill noted.
Two of Obama’s former press secretaries, Jay Carney and Robert Gibbs, were hired by CNN and MSNBC, respectively, after leaving the White House.
Poor Chuck Todd and the Whining Fake Establishmemt News Elite … Says Trump’s Delegitimization of Press ‘Un-American,’ ‘Not a Laughing Matter’
NO CHUCK TODD, YOU ARE A LAUGHING MATTER AND A PARTISAN HACK …
In lockstep with the liberal, establishment MSM, Chuck Todd voiced his partisan horror at President Donald Trump’s press conference on Thursday. Todd called Trump’s presser “Un-American” and “not a laughing matter”. Actually Mr. Todd and the rest of the MSM, it is you that are a laughing matter, partisan hacks and un-American. It is one thing to question authority, although where the hell were you during the last 8 years of the Obama administration, it is quite another thing to just attack, attack and attack with fake news. The days of the Democrat-media complex getting away with their lies and attacking the right are over. The media has met it’s match.
In a tweet sent during President Donald Trump‘s Thursday press conference, MSNBC host Chuck Todd indicated he didn’t find the bizarre hour-long back-and-forth with reporters all that humorous.
The Meet the Press host live tweeted the spectacle, at times sending tweets that indicated he didn’t believe the president was telling the truth, and that the rambling press conference would damage his relationship with Congress.
HEY MEGYN, DON’T ASK FOR THINGS THEY MIGHT JUST COME TRUE ... NEXT UP, THERE IS PLENTY OF TALENT TO REPLACE MEGYN.
Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News and headed to NBC. My first thought is, good riddance. My second is, next up. It had been rumored for quite dome time and now its official. The 46 year old Megyn Kelly is leaving the news organization and fan base that made her to go a news entity that is as liberal as it gets. The MSM would like to make this be a blow to FOX News and its demise. Really? Long before Megyn, Fox News was the most watched cable channel and they will be after. According to reports, Kelly was offered $20 million to stay with FNC. Her new salary with NBC has not been revealed. All that money just to act snarky, unreal. As per reports, Kelly’s role at NBC News will be multifaceted. She will host a new one-hour daytime program that will air Monday through Friday at a time to be announced, a Sunday night news magazine program, and she will “become an important contributor to NBC’s breaking news coverage as well as the network’s political and special events coverage.”
For Megyn Kelly, the shift from Fox News to NBC — where she will host a daily daytime show and a Sunday newsmagazine program — will be a test of whether she can connect with a broader audience in a different format and reach another level of television stardom.
But her move, announced Tuesday, has broader implications for the television news industry, raising new questions about the future of Fox News, where she was a countervailing presence in an opinion lineup heavy with right-leaning ideology, and of NBC News, which has been a longtime bête noire for conservative press critics. And it comes as all news organizations gird for a new era of media coverage that arrives Jan. 20 with the inauguration of Donald J. Trump.
The Murdoch family, which controls Fox News’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, had become so invested in Ms. Kelly as a franchise that they were prepared to pay her a salary of more than $20 million a year.
But now Fox News, long the cable news ratings leader and an influential voice in the national political debate, is on course to begin coverage of a new administration with no prime-time anchor with Ms. Kelly’s history of challenging Mr. Trump. Her show, “The Kelly File,” was sandwiched between the top-rated program of Bill O’Reilly — she was regularly second to him in the cable news ratings — and that of Mr. Trump’s major booster, Sean Hannity.
My personal opinion is that Megyn will become a small fish in a big liberal pond and probably rue the day she made this jump. I cannot believe that her career will be cultivated as it was at FOX. This almost appears to be addition by subtraction by NBC.
Legal Insurrection has a poll of who they think should take Kelly’s place. My choice would be Laura Ingraham, with Dana Loesch being a very close second.
Kelly’s salary at NBC is not known, but it’s expected to be in the $15 to $20 million range. However, it has been reported that Fox News had offered her $25 million year and a 4 year deal.
Megyn Kelly’s new daytime show on NBC is expected to replace Today’s 9 a.m. hour, sources said Wednesday.
NBC News declined to comment. A network source said that timing on everything involving Kelly is still up in the air, including when she will join NBC News and when her new shows will debut. Speaking Tuesday evening on her Fox News Channel show, The Kelly File, Kelly said her last show would air Friday. Her contract with Fox News runs through July though, so she may not be able to officially join NBC News until that contract expires.
Besides hosting her own daytime program, Kelly also will anchor a Sunday night news magazine and jump in on breaking news and political stories.
The 9 a.m. hour of Today has been a trouble spot for NBC. It tries to be a take on the panel talk show, with Al Roker and Tamron Hall leading a discussion of pop culture and light news with multiple hosts. Last August, the hour suffered a further setback when Today brought on Billy Bush to lead the hour, and soon Bush and Roker were clashing on air about Bush’s kid-gloves interview of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. Bush was then fired in October after video leaked of him and now-President-elect Donald Trump speaking lewdly about women.
FOLKS … YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP.
Brian Williams is the face of fake news. He was let go from his anchor position by NBC News for exactly that. Now this guy has the nerve to talk about fake news?
For years I’ve wondered if former NBC news anchor Brian Williams is an aspiring stand-up comic. What he said last night on The 11th Hour sealed it — this guy can make people laugh, albeit not always intentionally.
Williams’s repeated episodes of fictional story telling fobbed off as news, often accompanied by exaggerations of his journalistic heroics, led to his downfall from NBC in 2015. He was back seven months later in a lesser role, consigned to the purgatory that is late night on MSNBC.
Rather than tell you outright what Williams said, I defer to a video of his remarks. Better to hear it directly from him.
Yes, Williams actually said that, and while managing to keep a straight face. Just giving the guy credit where it’s due.
His decrying of “fake news” suggests that MSNBC is no place for this sort of thing. But if that were true, shouldn’t MSNBC refrain from having Brian Williams — of all people in the network’s employ — report on fake news to begin with? At the very least, shouldn’t some sort of disclaimer run across the bottom of the screen, something to the effect — “Warning: MSNBC anchor condemning fake news has repeatedly engaged in the practice.”
