ABC, NBC and CBS gave President Trump ten times more negative news coverage than positive on their evening newscasts and spent twice as much time on Russia than any other issue, according to a new study from the Media Research Center.

From NewsBusters, "TV vs. Trump in 2018: Lots of Russia, and 91% Negative Coverage (Again!)":
For this study, MRC analysts looked at all 505 evening news stories that mentioned President Trump or his administration in January and February. Out of 851 total minutes of airtime devoted to the administration, the networks spent almost one-fourth of it (204 minutes, or 24%) on the Russia investigation, eclipsing other major topics such as the economy, immigration reform, and even the gun debate.
Since Trump took office on January 20, 2017, the three broadcast evening newscasts have spent a combined 1,438 minutes on the Russia investigation, accounting for more than one out of every five minutes (21%) of coverage of the Trump presidency.

Network coverage has also emphasized the drama of Trump’s presidency while giving short shrift to its substance. In January and February, nearly 63 percent of news coverage was devoted to scandals like the Russia investigation, plus tabloid fodder such as the domestic abuse scandal involving White House aide Rob Porter (54 minutes), the fallout from Michael Wolff’s book about the Trump White House (53 minutes), reports that the President made disparaging comments about African nations in a closed-door meeting (31 minutes), along with dozens of other controversies the networks deemed worthy of airtime.
During those same months, coverage of policy issues such as immigration reform (100 minutes), the government shutdown (84 minutes), and gun control (63 minutes) amounted to just 37 percent of Trump’s coverage. Among the important substantive issues getting relatively little coverage so far this year: the continued strong economy and jobs (12 minutes); the positive impact of the big tax cuts passed in December (9 minutes); and the fight against al Qaeda and ISIS (a mere 1 minute, 23 seconds).
It's absolutely imperative people do not allow themselves to be gaslit by the lying media and their puppets in the entertainment industry.

Whether it's award shows like the Oscars, Hollywood movies, late night TV, or the fake news, they're waging a demoralization campaign against us to make us feel alone and isolated in our beliefs even though we're scoring huge wins and slowly reshaping society. Just look at the latest election in Italy where populists dominated and the "mainstream" leftist party imploded.





Even in ultra-cucked Germany the AfD party is now second in the polls.



Meme culture, which is dominated by the right, is taking over and Hollywood is imploding.

On Monday, The New York Slimes wrote an appeal to their readers begging them to try and become memers (using the most lame meme of all time):



Everyone knows the left can't meme. Nonetheless, these people are desperate.

The reason the right is being censored, demonetized and banned from every platform is because they know we're kicking their asses and they're desperate to shut it all down.


Their data mining operations tell them this is what's occurring.

This is why they're trying to use "hate speech" as an excuse to censor everyone to the right of Karl Marx and having CNN and others hunt down private citizens for public humiliation.
