Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 16, 2017

CNN claims it's right down the middle, somewhere between the left-wing MSNBC and the more conservative-friendly Fox News Channel. But an MRC study of an entire day of CNN's coverage shows the network spent almost all of its time covering the Trump presidency, with a heavily skewed roster of anti-Trump guests and on-air commentators.

After excluding commercials, teases and promos, our analysts found 13 hours, 27 minutes of actual news coverage, an average of just over 40 minutes per hour. Of that, a whopping 92 percent (12 hours, 19 minutes) was devoted to the Trump presidency, with a mere 68 minutes -- a little more than three minutes per hour -- devoted to all of the other news of the day.

They are trying to implement a narrative about the President. Having control of the media is more powerful than most people think.

CNN's website is highly critical of Trump. But frankly, how can any honest or responsible news agency not be highly critical of Trump at this point?

"They are trying to implement a narrative about the President."

Perhaps flatulence has more O2 than previously suspected.

Hey boozy. Did you not see Eberly post that if one of many news sources deviate from the story then it is a non-issue as long as an equal number doesn't, (deviate)

What percentage would be acceptable to Boaz, I wonder.
What percentage do Trump's performance and behavior warrant?
