State vast majority of new covering vulgar president is negative (omit vulgar part)

construct claim that media tarnishes his exemplary conduct

Find opinion from rivial political news agency saying that public opinion of Cheetos would drastically improve, but his public image is being held politically captive.

connect correlation to causation.

derp.  clownhall.

so insulting.

This actually disproves the "fake news" narrative, since 91 is a lower percentage than he deserves. The press must really be sucking up to him if 9% of his coverage is positive.

But the headline needs a one word correction (in caps): "News coverage of Donald Trump is ONLY 91% negative!"
 
2017-09-13 09:40:14 PM  
91% negative?  I call that a positive, but I'm neutral on the source.
 
2017-09-13 10:40:30 PM  
Look, reality isn't fair and balanced. Sorry.

/Not sorry

Thats why Trump won... a good share of the voters dont trust the news media.
 
2017-09-13 11:33:40 PM  
The media coverage of Aaron Burr and Benedict Arnold was balanced at first, but like today's fake news about Trump, is turned overwhelmingly negative for reasons that Trump just cannot fathom.

That amount of introspection is impossible for them.

Trump is a disgusting asshole who believes in sexual assault and can't be bothered to say "Nazis are bad." Even assuming Townhall isn't pulling numbers out of their ass, I'm amazed there's positive coverage of any sort.
 
2017-09-14 12:22:43 AM  
Trump and the GOP have transformed resentment into an incredible fuel. Without it, they would die.
 
2017-09-14 12:28:22 AM  
I know, kinda crazy, but maybe sometime he'll actually do something positive.

/naah.
 
2017-09-14 12:32:43 AM  
What could the media have said that would be positive so far?

In 1942 should the media have reported, "We know Hitler's a bad guy, but at least he loves dogs!  Look at this cute clip from @fuhrer3 and tell us he doesn't have a soft spot for puppies?"

In related news, ClownHall's coverage of Donald Trump ranges from "fawning" to "fellating" 100% of the time.

Maybe D2S would start getting less negative coverage if he started doing fewer negative things. But I guess that concept is too deep for alt-right window-lickers like TFA's author.
 
2017-09-14 03:07:54 AM  
91% of the news coverage is Trump making himself look bad. They don't even need to put bias with it.
 
2017-09-14 03:08:57 AM  
Seems about right. He's about 91% negative, the rest is Cheetos, and although it's a shame to crush them to a powder like that, Cheetos are still awesome.

That number may change, because a lot of RWNJs are having a meltdown over Trump making a (one sided) deal Chuck and Nancy.
 
2017-09-14 03:20:41 AM  
News coverage of Donald Trump may be 91% negative, but out of fairness, Donald Trump is 99.9%* negative.

*He'd like to be 100% negative, but he can't even get that right.

I suppose you gave them a click so we wouldn't have to add to the hitcount? Thank you, my browser cache/ istory still feels dirty from clicking on them last time. No matter how many times I clear it, doesnt seem to help.
 
2017-09-14 03:22:03 AM  
How did they filter out the coverage of him actually doing and saying negative things?
 
2017-09-14 03:24:52 AM  

FatherChaos: 91% of the news coverage is Trump making himself look bad. They don't even need to put bias with it.


It's fascinating to watch because most of the time he could very easily not get into the trouble he gets into by simply doing nothing. It's entirely him, personally, on his own that is doing this to himself. It's simply astounding to watch it happen, more so because he's a 70 year old man who really should know better by virtue of the fact that he has stayed alive on the planet Earth for 70 years.
 
2017-09-14 03:25:15 AM  
Facts have a well known negative bias.

If Trump had spent his first 6 months pouring money into infrastructure projects and keeping his mouth shut, he'd probably have a net positive approval rating by now.

But he didn't, because he's incompetent.

MRC is run by NewsBusters. (Or vice versa, it's a bit unclear)

NewsBusters tagline is: Exposing and Combating Liberal Media Bias

That doesn't seem like an unbiased source.

Press coverage of Jeffrey Dahmer is 100% negative. The problem with this is not the press.

2017-09-14 05:06:00 AM  
Well, when 91% of what you do and say is utterly idiotic and/or evil, that does tend to happen....

(My first thought, though, was 'where the hell are you finding something that's only 9% ads?!')
 
2017-09-14 05:19:43 AM

These people are broken children in adult bodies waving a gun around at the country.  They're in charge now, and they're gonna show us!

Don't elect a malicious asshole as President and the coverage will improve you farking dipshiats.

Hickory-smoked: If Trump had spent his first 6 months pouring money into infrastructure projects and keeping his mouth shut, he'd probably have a net positive approval rating by now.


His idea of "pouring money into infrastructure projects" was "come up with a vast giveaway scheme to funnel money to construction companies and sell our highways to private companies to use as toll roads."

. . .so it's not like the idea of "infrastructure project" never crossed his mind, but the idea of simply pouring money into it so there would be lots of construction and improvement eluded him.  It had to be a way to maximize profits and grift money off the Federal coffers.
 
2017-09-14 07:36:49 AM  
Well if they just pointed a camera at him and let him go without any reporter saying anything it would still be negative.
 
2017-09-14 07:57:39 AM  
The press loves when he does something "positive", like reading a speech for 10 minutes without going off script. They fawn over him, asking if its a turning point and how he's finally acting Presidential. Then the 20 minutes pass and Trump does something stupid again.
 
2017-09-14 08:00:31 AM  
If one person you meet is an asshole, then you met an asshole.  If 91% of the people you meet are assholes, then you're the asshole.

Actual Unbiased Reporting: "A Twinkie has 140 calories while the same amount of broccoli has 10 calories, therefore broccoli is better for you than Twinkies"
Conservative Unbiased Reporting: "If you ate a pound of broccoli it would have the same number of calories as a Twinkie therefore the two are actually nutritionally indistinguishable but FAKE NEWS doesn't want you to know the truth about broccoli."

Trump will get amazing coverage the day we drag his fat orange ass out of the White House.  There will be large scale, spontaneous celebrations in every major city in the United States.

Might be because the Trump presidency is 99% bad and the media is biased towards him.

If 100% of what you do is negative, reporting on only 91% of that sh*t is cutting you a farking break.
Be grateful and STFU.
 
2017-09-14 09:40:43 AM  
91% of the truth hurts bigots and racists, oh well. And most people channel surf during commercials because we already know about the happy meals.
 
2017-09-14 09:53:02 AM  
When one is a national embarrassment 91% of the time, the press will reflect that.
