While not wanting to defend CNN, I will offer that possibly the reason there is so much negative coverage of Pres Trump is that Pres Trump lies so much to support his agenda.

Perhaps if Pres Trump either stopped tweeting, or was more truthful in his tweets, then the coverage of him would be different, more positive.

93% of what Humpy does is negative for America.

Humpy just hates hearing his own words repeated over and over back to him. They not only sound negative they are negative.

When you lie about just about everything, over and over, when you congratulate yourself over and over, when you tear down the accomplishments of your predecessor and replace them with dog s**t, the news is probably going to be a little negative about you if it honest. Over at Fox 24/7 Propaganda Channel you will only hear compliments and grovelling which is what Dotard likes to hear.

Not on Radio Havana.

--99% of coverage of Fidel Castro is negative.

On what planet? That was never true. The MSM pumped out numerous puff pieces for decades about the dictator's health care system, while ignoring his political prisoners and executions.

Meanwhile, America has over a million political prisoners from the racist War on Drugs.

That just goes to show that CNN has lost all credibility by catering to conservatives. Trump's actions are 99% negative and they throw his base a free 6% of positivity because they cry so much. They threw out fair reporting for balance.

In the pantheon of dumb things that you have said since 9/9/2016, this has to be near the top.

When some inbred republican shows up to CNN making Sloth from the Goonies look intelligent by comparison and its objectively false "opinion" is given the same weight as a nobel laureate -- its pretty damn clear CNN has declined in order to cater to cavemen like yourself.

Unlike like you Indy, I don't slavishly watch any of the cable news networks for the aforementioned reasons.

Do yourself a favor and form your own opinions, not those that MSNBCNNCNBC tell you to believe.

The reason why CNN is failing as a network despite this being theoretically their best opportunity to grow as a liberal opposition network is because the country is on the right track, the economy is growing, and people are better off than 2 years ago. The sky is falling message only works when people see their quality if life decreasing. The are seeing the opposite. So, CNN continues to pump out these messages about how the US is terrible and the end is near but then none of their predictions come true and life continues to improve.

I can't wait to see the dems running in 2020 on a 'change' message when people can see the change is back to the slow growth policies of the dems that keep people poor.

Probably true as long as you don't care about jobs, the economy, the number of people on food stamps, or peace in the world. If your primary concern is giving hormone treatment to transexual 5 year olds or destroying the country so you can implement communism, yeah, you probably view Trump as 95% negative.

"destroying the country so you can implement communism"

Like if you were the President, and it turns out you most trusted associates and advisors had ties to Russia?

In which country did that happen? After 2+ years of investigating, it sure the hell wasn't this one.

This, from the guy who couldn't think of a single lie from Team Trump regarding Russia.

"In which country did that happen?"

Let's just stick to the question.

Let's say, in some theoretical country, a whole bunch of the President's men had close ties with Russia and the Kremlin, while at the same time Russian intelligence intervened in the election to help him win.

Would that be a good way to destroy the country so you can implement communism?

A good way to start is to bully congress into irrelevancy. If that sounds familiar that's because it's already been done. Then you shoehorn your cherry-picked supreme court justices into the highest court in the land so you can do anything you want with impunity and without all that pesky advise and consent that shows you down. Then, with all your attention on foreign policy, you set your sights on the malignment of alliances so you can blame them for why they no longer have your military support ~ which allows you to pave the way for Russia to expand it's influence and military power and thus once again become a world power with whom share a common interest.

Multi-tasking all the while on the domestic front, you proceed to fuel culture wars to create a domestic enemy within that you can assign blame for all the problems that cause the downfall of their lot in life. Again with the multi-tasking, you use your new found impunity to guarantee that your financial donors are well funded and appropriately "appreciative" for their new found wealth and thus insure their continued financial support.

Moving on, it will be necessary to keep the world in a state of flux, uncertainly, confusion and fear so they become frozen into immobility. The gravy on that train will be a decline in their economy from lack of secure trade agreements that you systematically and with malicious intent destroyed ~ and have, by extension, created an atmosphere of unrest and public dissent toward their own leaders.

Also, it always helps to have a war on the drawing board ~ just to add to the confusion both abroad and at home.

Sound familiar?
