A new study by the Media Research Center finds that President Donald Trump has received more hostile treatment than any other President in United States History. According to the study, 89% of broadcast networks’ coverage of President Trump has been negative. A staggering 1,501 on-air statements about Trump, from January 20th to April 9th, were negative. Only 186 on air statements about the President were positive, the study found.

It also revealed that most of the negative coverage of Trump was focused on his travel ban, Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election, the ObamaCare repeal, immigration enforcement, and Trump’s allegations that President Obama had him wiretapped.
On “Outnumbered” today, Newt Gingrich warned that this is another sign that the liberal mainstream media is drifting further and further to the left.
He suggested that the Trump administration “clean out the White House press room.”
“Why would you allow The New York Times or CBS News in the White House press room?” Gingrich said. “They’re your mortal enemies.”
To many that have been paying attention, the news of a hostile and biased media towards this administration may come as no surprise.
