President Donald Trump took aim at the media coverage surrounding his administration, citing a Media Research Center study that was referenced on the Fox News Channel.
Despite so many positive events and victories, Media Reseach Center reports that 92% of stories on Donald Trump are negative on ABC, CBS and ABC. It is FAKE NEWS! Don’t worry, the Failing New York Times didn’t even put the Brett Kavanaugh victory on the Front Page yesterday-A17!

The president also accused The New York Times of burying a story about Justice Brett Kavanaugh within the printed edition of the paper.
The MRC study that the president referenced notes, “The results show that, over the past four months, nearly two-thirds of evening news coverage of the Trump presidency has been focused on just five main topics: the Russia investigation; immigration policy; the Kavanaugh nomination; North Korea diplomacy; and U.S. relations with Russia.”
The MRC study continued “the networks’ coverage of all of these topics has been highly negative, while bright spots for the administration such as the booming economy received extremely little coverage.”
