This shouldn’t come as a surprise. The MSM’s coverage of President Trump is over 90% negative.
What’s odd is that 45’s approval numbers are on the rise.
Hmm. How does the left explain that one?
From Fox News Insider:
President Trump’s approval ratings have risen despite a study showing media coverage of his administration has been 91 percent negative this year.
According to an average of polls by RealClearPolitics, Trump’s approval rating stands at 43 percent, up six points from December.
The uptick has come despite overwhelmingly negative coverage on the broadcast evening news from Jan. 1 through April 30, according to the Media Research Center.

More from NewsBusters:
Nearly two-fifths (39%) of the TV coverage we examined focused on Trump scandals and controversies, while 45 percent was devoted to various policy issues. The remaining airtime was spent on controversies involving other top Trump officials, such as EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, or did not involve specific topics.
The Russia “collusion” story was given by far the most airtime — 321 minutes, or nearly one-fifth of all Trump administration coverage. The legal battle involving porn star Stormy Daniels, as well as allegations against the President involving other women, ate up another 92 minutes of airtime.
Network coverage of those topics, plus a host of other smaller controversies involving the President, was almost entirely negative: of the 598 statements we tallied about Trump’s personal controversies or scandals, virtually all of them (579, or 97%) were negative.
The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?

If it wasn’t clear to some before, it should be blatant NOW – the media is out to get Trump because they’re mainly leftists.
It doesn’t get simpler than that.
