Report: 100% of Nightly Impeachment Coverage Negative to Trump

No one who watches the nightly network news broadcasts will need a study to tell them that ABC, NBC, and CBS have been relentlessly biased in their coverage of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. Following in the footsteps of The New York Times and the Washington Post (not to mention the marching orders of the Democratic Party), these network news shows have carefully crafted a narrative that praises Rep. Adam Schiff and the Democrats while trashing President Trump and his impeachment defense team.

But even those who recognize these broadcasts for what they are may be surprised at just HOW biased these presentations have become.

From Newsbusters:  

Between Wednesday, January 22, when Democratic House impeachment managers launched their opening arguments, and Tuesday, January 28, when the President’s defense team rested, evening newscast reporters and anchors made a total of 34 evaluative statements about the merits and effectiveness of both sides.

Democratic impeachment managers received a total of 21 evaluative statements from ABC, CBS, and NBC journalists. Of that total, 95 percent of those (20) touted their efforts and presentations, which means only one of their evaluative comments were negative. ABC’s World News Tonight had eight positive comments, CBS Evening News had five, and NBC Nightly News seven. NBC had the lone negative comment.

In stark contrast, every evaluative statement from reporters and anchors about the merits and effectiveness of Trump’s defense team were negative. Of the 13 total statements, ABC and CBS each had five with NBC pitching in with three.

Yes, it may seem astounding when you realize that the networks were 100% negative towards Trump’s defenses and 95% positive towards the House managers’ presentation, but it even gets worse when you realize the one statement that the Media Research Center considered an exception to the rule. It was Chuck Todd, speaking on NBC Nightly News on January 25, lamenting at how little Schiff and his cronies had done to move Republicans away from their position on calling witnesses.

“You don’t really see any shifts,” Todd said. “And if anything, I think before this trial began, I thought they had a good shot at getting witnesses and maybe at least extending this a little bit. I think it’s pretty clear that Mitch McConnell has convinced them it’s not worth it.”

That’s as far as any of the three networks went in terms of criticizing the Democrats, and we’d say that is some faint criticism indeed.

What’s really remarkable, though, is that despite an avalanche of media bias pouring from every network and (nearly) every major newspaper, more than half of Americans still think that these impeachment charges are without merit. Just imagine where that number would be if we actually had fair and unbiased political coverage.

What do you think?

    • Please explain specifically , not just opinion, what makes him a deadbeat or crook…. I’m not surprised that you can’t. Even MSNBC’s team of four couldn’t name anything they could prove even after 4 days of research.

      • Crook and Deabeat Blows through record Stock Market numbers, Record Low Unemployment in every demographic, Signs unprecedented Trade Upgrades, Removes the Top Tier of the Terrorist Networks without losing a single American Life, Gives most American a Tax Cut, Appoints 2 Suprem Court Justices and record Circuit Court Judges, filling vacancies and shortening trial delays, Allows Veterans to go to any Doctor, Reduces Prescription drug costs. Creates more Manufacturing jobs than those lost over the last decade, has more available jobs than unemployed workers. And still. there is a hardcore of blithering idiots calling themselves Democrats or Progressives, who think that this is bad. If this is bad, bring on the Crooks and Deadbeats. I can live with the results. So can Bill Ehrhorn.

    • If you are speaking of President Trump, you are way off the mark. Considering all the great things President Trump has already accomplished, and is well on his way to accomplish even more if the democrats would just stop their complaining and looking for “bad things” in the good, we’d all be a lot happier. The democrats in Congress and the Senate are mostly trying to get people to believe that they’ve done all the good stuff and that the President is evil. It’s not true and they know it, but they’re afraid if they don’t keep up their “Trashing of Trump” that some of their minions might still vote for them. There’s no contest here….the vast majority of real voters (not the whiny college Sanders lovers because they want everything free, or the dim bulbs who still think communism can be better) will vote for President Trump and Vice President Pence. Anyone else will cause irreparable harm to the progress we’ve made. Under President Trump, we’ve had a much better economy, better pay raises, the country protected better from illegal immigrants who have no way of taking care of themselves and decide that getting free stuff is okay for them, but not for anyone else. It amazes me that there are still people like you who mistake President Trump for the crazy leftists like Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, Warren, Sanders, and the entire OAC gang, not to forget that diseased ugly woman from California who doesn’t have the sense God gave a goose and calls Trump illegal. She’s not illegal, fortunately, but she is insane for certain.

  1. I ask, what kind of America do these Democrats and their lapdog media want? What do they offer? High taxes running corporations and the wealthy out of the country, wide-open borders, trash our Constitution and rights, free stuff for everybody with no idea to pay for it, Socialism, a poor economy with millions more on welfare and food stamps, a weak military, Social justice warriors, Climate change activists, thought police, no guns for legal owners and stifling laws to boot, but allow the armed criminals to roam without opposition, restrooms and locker rooms that allow the opposite sex to enter at will, immigrants from violent foreign countries to enter whenever they wish with no desire toward citizenship, Is THIS what the Democrats want for our country? Who would even want to live in a place as I described? But that is what the Democrats, the media and ignorant, clueless Democrat voters seem to want. They won’t miss the America we now have until it is irretrievably gone. Just listen to the presidential candidates, including Bloomberg. They offer absolutely nothing for the betterment of America and its citizens but much in the way of forming a Democrat dictatorship full of subjects, not citizens, to be ruled over.

  2. ANYONE THAT DOES NOT REALIZE THAT THE “LAME STREAM MEDIA:….{ CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, DNC, MOST PRINT NEWSPAPERS, & MANY RADIO STATIONS…{ PBS}….IS TRYING TO GO ALL OUT FOR SOCIALISM, & STOPPING PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP…..{ THEY AREN’T BEING “REAL}

    Any Conservative or Republican mind…..can easily see this move to subvert Conservatism, & personal responsibility in America! This is being “fostered”, by George Soros, & the *Demoncrat party! Just a close scrutiny, of the *Demoncrat platform, can see that they have “gone over the edge”, to the “DARK SIDE”….against everything our Constitution has been for since it’s inception!

  3. I watch Fox because the others are so stupid. I watch a Trump rally (Only heavily edited on CNN or MSNBC) and I see entertainment and information. I get good feelings and watch the crowds get bigger every time. I read the crowd make-up and see the faces in the crowd and I see Diversity and excitement, then I switch to the ABC Networks and I hear criticism and misconstrued comments. Editorialized analysis, and it makes me sick. I feel sad for the poor people who watch this stuff and I see why some Sheeple actually stay with the flock and vote Democrat. The solid stream of lies and miss-characterizations is hard to swallow when you know the truth.

  4. No one can be so INSANELY STUPID (unless, of course, these individuals have a SEVERE CASE of the TERMINAL stupid’s, which is PERMANENT, Like Left Wing Liberalism, a MENTAL DISORDER) can call POTUS Trump a “crook and a deadbeat”. He works TIRELESSLY for ALL of us whether you like him or not . . . mark of a TRUE leader. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  5. None are so blind…as those who will not see!…that Trump is NOT a “stable” anything!!
    Trump DID WRONG!!…and will again, because he can.
    All his lies, embellishments, or “misstatements” are now commonplace, accepted, and worse…expected!
