But over the full course of the election, it was Clinton, not Trump, who was more often the target of negative coverage (see Figure 1). Overall, the coverage of her candidacy was 62 percent negative to 38 percent positive, while his coverage was 56 percent negative to 44 percent positive.

The quote is from the report at this URL. (part of the Harvard Kennedy School)

Both Clinton and Trump received negative press; Clinton more so than Trump. So it would appear the (less) negative press coverage favoured Trump.

FOX is far more fair and balanced than other Media Outlets.

That the Harvard Study shoots big holes in most of the arguments presented here must really be causing some serious Butt Hurt.

There's a very good reason why the 'tone of negativity' is 'bad'. It's not because the worlds largest conspiracy is underway.

It's because it's bad.

It's getting to the point where even the most hardened conspiracy theorists are seeing the light. I'm glad that you prefer Fox News, here is a fair and balanced commentary on Trump

Erm no, the study doesn't say anything about bias. As the title in nice big letters in your chart shows, it reports tone. I assume you know the difference?

Bias means deliberately skewing a story to suit an agenda. Tone means something significantly different, which is just the general tilt of stories, and shifts from time to time depending on where the stories are. A negative tone will occur, even with a positive bias, if all the stories are in fact negative and there's just not much you can do about it.

Look, you think Hilary is guilty without ever being charged. You also think Trump is innocent until the day he is sentenced without appeal for life, and how dare anyone suggest otherwise.

I suggest, perhaps and with respect, you are too emotionally invested in a guy who is using you for his own ends, which mostly seem to be doing seedy business in Russia. Is that really what you want for your country? I know you will say you don't care, but do you want to be those guys? I respectfully suggest your media is reflecting what has become obvious to the world which is that the guy is not a president. And I really hope you will still be here when the impeachment and probable removal from office happens. it has reached the point I'm almost certain it will happen, and I will have respect for you if so.

After reading the last couple of pages I was going to say something VERY similar to this..

Which is the best summation so far, SAS try again...

Yep - very important distinction - tone is very different from bias.
Most media monitoring services will provide you with breakdown of tone - very important from a spin doctors point of view.
If it's red - you've got some work to do!

It is all a great plot. Trump will hang on for a couple of more months before Pence takes over and appoints Kushner as his VP. So Trump can concentrate again even more on golfing, watching TV and eating steaks based in his golden tower in NY while Kushner takes care of the interests of the US millionairs and billionairs from the White House.

Bias determines what gets reported AND determines the Tone.

Bias also determines what does not get reported....which also affects Tone.

The two are not mutually exclusive as one provides the other.

Look back at the Nomination and Confirmation of Justice Gorsuch for an example of this.

What was the media treatment of that story....on an appointment that affects the country for thirty years or so?

Did they merely report dull boring Facts or did they offer up opinions in their reporting of the "news"?

News and Opinion shoul be separate articles and opinion clearly stated as being such.

Consider Media and Congress share the disapproval of the People in almost equal rankings that are about one third of Trump's approval rating.

For those who view color as being the key.....85% Red means the same here as you suggest in that graphic You take such exception to seeing posted.

But surely its your particular bias that sets the tone?. For example CNN are part of Time Warner who were one of Clintons top 10 campaign contributors, so they are biased in favour of Clinton which is bound to set the tone of their coverage.

Right, understood. We took care off that Nov 8, 2016. We went 'cold turkey' and by Jan 21st, we were finally straightened out, and on the track to keep clean. So far, so good. Thanks for caring.

On the media bias front, it's one of those pernicious, yet easy to conceal things. The use of adverbs, I mentioned before in a string of articles in a source is a good clue. Words like today's 'bombshell':









Bombshell revelations in Trump-Russia inquiry


Try to inject a sense of doom and fatality into a meeting and discussion that just wasn't there. The two leaders talked about important things, it wasn't saturday tea, but it would be normal that these talks would contain critical political, cultural, and yes, even possibly military, and terror related subjects. If you want to have a intl conference with one of your major super powers, might as well make it productive. So, what's this 'bombshell'? Trump said something about firing Comey, calling him a 'nut job'. Here's how they worded it: "...delivered a one-two punch to the Trump White House". See how the media is trying to use metaphors to advance a method to destroy the Trump admin?

I'm sure that most of the libs and alt-left people who read this consider it just another normal, and even middle of the road kind of report. Anything Trump does, or says is fodder for the 'bombshell', providing the world with a 'one-two punch'. So, there is no one so blind as those who will not see.

If you think this reporting is not biased, I have a job for you. Go back and read some of the historical papers from the 50s, and even the 40s. Just get a tenor of the reporting, and the writing from back then, no matter which political subject you choose. Read some of that and then come back and read some current trash from CNN, ABC, MSNBC, or other feeds to yahoo.

CNN, ABC, MSNBC etc etc. As far as I know, none of these are linked to Twitter feeds coming from the President. And it is these Twitter feeds that are driving people more and more to the conclusion that Trump has lost the plot! I suspect he will eventually Tweet himself out of a job!

Exactly. It's why I'm basing my views on what the President is tweeting himself, that's more than enough to show contradictions, policy U turns and what seems to be a pretty thin skin.

The Tweets drive the Media to distraction because Trump goes directly to the People without the media getting to control the narrative.

Granted some of the Tweets would best be un-sent....but in general they very much serve a positive purpose When done correctly.

The question is whether Trump becomes more judicious in those Tweets ... or not!

Trump has trolled the Media so many times.....and like starving Trout they fall for the bait without fail. But like fishing....sometimes you goof up a cast and get a backlash!

I don't have a twitter, or FB, or linkin, or facespace, or whatever. I have to rely on the press for their take. Also, I'm not in the habit of defending someone twiting but here's what we have today:

Trump: ..in a tweet on Friday, Trump wrote: "Getting ready for my big foreign trip. Will be strongly protecting American interests - that's what I like to do!"

Selected replies chosen by the Intl Business Times:

Some criticized the president's promise to "strongly protect American interests" while others responded with a cacophony of funny memes, jokes and comments.

"Please try not to embarrass us too much," one Twitter user wrote. Another tweeted: "You are the furthest thing from a patriot. You've sold us out to Russia, let Turkey beat up protesters, and embarrassed us to everyone else."
"Yay! Did you take your blanky & iPad for the flight? Such a big boy!" one user tweeted.
"American interests are quite different from the interests of you and your family," one Twitter user wrote.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
100% of their selections were negative, and clearly slanted to embarrass and diminish our elected prez in the eyes of the foreign press.



How is this helping the US? How is this making America great again? How is the IBT considered this:

Trusted source? How about massively, and undeniably biased against the president, and the entire country as Trump starts out on his first intl trip? Does any liberal here really think this is a good thing to do to your elected president with barely 4 months on the job? Why can't the IBT reply 'good luck sir, keep us safe, and build great relationships with our partners in the ME'.

What's wrong with people?

Very, very good video, the best piece of journalism I've ever seen on Fox, and he is of course quite right about the role of journalists in holding the Apprentice to account.

Trump's defender in chief, how do you feel about your man repeatedly saying things that are demonstrably false? Is the media 'biased' when it points that out? Should it just allow the people to be continually lied to? Anything to say about the fact press coverage of Clinton was more negative than your poor victim?

When fox are gunning for a republican president this bad it begins to look like the end game. It would be worth celebrating except that the replacement is equally scary for a bunch of different reasons. And then there is the trouble that people find it very difficult to accept when they've been duped (we can see some of that here) and will lash out against their supposed enemies.

LA Times: Tweet: A great honor to welcome President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia to the White House today!��������
Joint Press Conf

Trump welcomes president of Colombia but doesn't say he'll continue U.S. aid
Tracy Wilkinson and Chris Kraul

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos met Thursday with President Trump, hoping to secure guarantees for a continuation of millions of dollars in U.S. aid as his country emerges from half a century of civil war.

Publicly, Trump gave no such commitment during a joint news conference with Santos in the White House East Room.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Does this imply that the pres should have disclosed policy in his tweet but - failed? Is the LA Times upset because he didn't tweet about fiscal policy, or are they upset because he's not going along with more foreign aid to Columbia?

And further, why did Santos come to the US? Well, let's find out:

"Santos listed his country’s needs for post-war reconstruction, including rebuilding roads and other infrastructure, resettling displaced peasants and demobilized guerrilla fighters, creating new judicial mechanisms and eradicating coca crops.Colombia last year signed a peace accord with the leftist guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), ending the longest-running military conflict in the world. More than a quarter million people were killed in the 50-year war.
The United States has supported the Colombian government with $10 billion over the last decade or so, under the auspices of so-called Plan Colombia. Much of the money was aimed at fighting drug trafficking.


W-T-F?????????

There is a problem with your conspiracy theory that you need twitter to understand. The reason all the selections are negative isn't because there is some massive conspiracy in effect that is deliberately choosing them to suit an agenda, it's because ALL the replies are negative. They can hardly be balanced with postive replies when there aren't any there, that'd be #fakenews. SAD!













I could go on for thousands of replies. This is the mood of the people, and it's not the fault of media bias or some conspiracy to discredit, Trump has no one to blame but himself. Imagine the outrage if Obama told provably false outright lies every time he opened his mouth, and the media never reported on it. You'd surely say that there's a conspiracy.

So there's a conspiracy if they do and a conspiracy if they don't?
