The media was caught red-handed lying about President Trump on immigration
The mainstream media has declared an outright war against President Trump’s immigration agenda.
It is no secret that the fake news industrial complex is trying to sabotage President Trump.
But ABC, CBS, and NBC just got caught red-handed spreading a massive lie about Trump.
These news outlets routinely present a biased story in favor of the left.
However, this time the Fake News media went too far.
The Washington Times reports:
The broadcast networks’ news coverage of President Trump’s immigration policy has been stunningly negative, with administration opponents and “victims” of the policies getting the vast majority of the time, a new study finds.
The Media Research Center, a conservative watchdog, reviewed more than 1,000 sound bites the ABC, CBS and NBC nightly newscasts aired from Mr. Trump’s inauguration through last month, and found a staggering 92 percent of them were hostile to the president.
All told, the networks devoted nearly 1,000 minutes of coverage to immigration, ranging from the travel ban to the phase out of the Obama-era DACA program to the recent border zero-tolerance approach…
Of those the networks chose to give air time to, “victims” of the president’s policies got 478 soundbites, or 44 percent of the coverage. By contrast people whose relatives were victims of illegal immigrant crimes accounted for just five appearances.
The media will claim that they are an unbiased source of news, but it is difficult to justify reporting on President Trump’s immigration policies negatively 92% of the time.
This is outright political activism under the guise of “journalism.”
A recent Gallup poll shows that 62% of Americans believe that media delivers a biased and often time inaccurate view of the news. But that number might be low.
Trust in the media is plummeting while alternative news sources become increasingly popular.
Public awareness that the mainstream media has a leftwing bias may be at an all-time high thanks to President Trump.
Trump famously called them out on their biased reporting and even coined the term, “Fake News” during the 2016 Presidential campaign, which lit a fire in the grassroots that he rode to the White House.
