I cannot prove this, but the caller to my radio show seemed totally credible. If what he said is true, then the animosity towards Trump in left-wing circles is even more extreme than some of us would have believed. And that is saying a lot.
The caller, named Rob, from Tampa, Florida, said he had previously worked at an NBC News affiliate up north. (He didn’t want to give further details so as to be able to speak with total freedom.)
As a committed Christian, he claims he was not just in the minority. He was alone, with all the other newsroom staffers, totaling at least 30 people, identifying as either atheists or agnostics. And, he said, “Every single one of them was a hardcore leftist.”
Rob said his last year working at the station was the first year of Trump’s presidency, so 2017. During that time, a story about Trump was run for a few days, a story that “everyone knew was a lie.”
So he reached out to the assignment editor and said, “What you’re putting on TV is a lie. Why are you doing it?”
According to Rob, “The guy looked at me stone cold and said, ‘It’s not my duty or my obligation to tell the truth. It’s my obligation to get Donald Trump out of the White House.'”
Again, I can’t verify this story, although, to repeat, Rob did seem credible, and he was quite aware of Trump’s shortcomings.
But what I can say is this:There is no question that the TV media leans overwhelmingly to the left, and there is no question that the leftist media is overtly and unapologetically hostile to Trump.
Looking first at the media’s anti-Trump reporting, in October, 2017, Pew Research noted that, “The Pew Research Center, in a content analysis of the early days of the Trump presidency, found that 62% of the coverage was negative and only 5% was positive.
“In contrast, President Barack Obama’s coverage in early 2009 was 42% positive and 20% negative, the study said.”
So, the coverage of Trump was more than 12 to 1 negative; the coverage of Obama was more than 2 to 1 positive.
