Me­dia and Trump

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - OUTLOOK -

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
