As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party.
For example, President Trump’s push to invigorate the economy and bring back American jobs received a mere 18 minutes of coverage (less than one percent of all airtime devoted to the administration), while his moves to renegotiate various international trade deals resulted in less than 10 minutes of TV news airtime.
Eight years ago, in contrast, the broadcast networks rewarded new President Barack Obama with mainly positive spin, and spent hundreds of stories discussing the economic agenda of the incoming liberal administration.
Here Are Just a Few Of the Fake News Stories About Donald Trump:
He doesn’t read. A favorite NY Times/MSNBC lie. Totally false. Anyone that knows him, including myself, laughs when they hear that one. A constant reader, look at any picture of his desk, covered with reports, studies and books.
CNN reported that Nancy Sinatra was “not happy” Trump’s first inaugural dance to her dad’s “My Way.” Even the very liberal Democrat Nancy was stunned by this fake news and posted this reaction, “Why do you lie, CNN?”
The New York Times and others reported that on Inauguration Day, Trump’s team scrubbed climate change and references to LGBT from the White House website. Actually, there was a broadcasted plan to shift the Obama website to a different site and that the Trump team would use a skeleton site for the first few days.
The Washington Post hit Trump for giving a speech in front of the “sacrosanct” CIA Memorial Wall. It didn’t mention that Obama had done the same thing.
CBS, reporting on the same event, said that the applause for Trump came from the first three rows of guests, stacked with Trump campaign and White House aides. In an embarrassing pushback, Spicer at a subsequent press briefing said there were no aides in the first four rows, that they were standing in the back.
A Time reporter tweeted that Trump removed the Martin Luther King Jr. bust from Oval office. The reporter soon corrected the tweet.
Several outlets reported that Team Trump issued a “gag order” on the EPA and other agencies. In fact, the memo asking them to refrain from tweeting and issuing news releases is standard operating procedure between administrations.
The AP reported that Donald Trump’s voter fraud expert was registered to vote in three states. He was registered in only one.
Many media outlets described the president’s immigration orders as a “Muslim ban.”It targeted anybody from seven nations, including Christians, not just Muslims.
The New York Times reported that Trump’s staff bumbles around in the dark in the Cabinet room because they can’t find the light switch.
The failing @nytimes does major FAKE NEWS China story saying “Mr.Xi has not spoken to Mr. Trump since Nov.14.” We spoke at length yesterday!
Longtime Hillary Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal wrote up a story in the London Review of Books about a racist political ad by Trump’s father. It was widely spread in mainstream media social accounts. It was a fake.
The Trump Company was sued by the city for racist housing in the 70’s – every company was.
Reports said that a Muslim-American Olympic female athlete was detained at an airport under Trump’s immigration orders. She was briefly detained in December under former President Obama’s policies.
Several reports said that Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe discussed classified info at dinner table at Mar-a-Largo. They were discussing press conference plans for next day.
Most mainstream media outlets have sneered that there was little or no voter fraud in the election. But a university analysis and separate poll indicated that 2 million “non-citizen” immigrants may have voted.
NBC and others said that 10 members of an Asian American Council quit in protest over Trump policies. Spicer said that they were all Obama appointees with terms set to expire.
The Associated Press reported that the president planned to mobilize the National Guard to remove illegal immigrants. White House called it “100 percent wrong.”
The New York Daily News reported that Trump domestic policy adviser Stephen Miller called Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Robert Capers at home to explain how to defend the immigration executive order in court. Both however said they did not speak.
