Media and Trump
Regarding “Trump vs. Jefferson” (Page A14, Thursday), the editorial called President Trump’s attack on the media “an affront to the American people.” I would offer that it has been the media’s attack on Trump that is the real affront on the American people.
In fact, the media has been pulling for Democrats and a liberal agenda going back as far as Bill Clinton’s term as president.
In fact, Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy recently released a study of media coverage of the Trump White House and found 80 to 90 percent of the news coverage of Trump since he has been in office has been negative. It is truly a sad day for our country when most if not all the media has lost its ability to be objective politically.
I just wished Trump would use the correct term “biased news” instead of “fake news.” Larry Tidwell, Baytown
