Since the beginning of the impeachment inquiry on September 24, the coverage has somehow become even more hostile than before. As Newsbusters explains, “out of 684 evaluative comments included in these broadcasts, a whopping 96 percent have been negative, vs. a meager four percent that have been positive.”
During the six weeks since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced the start of the inquiry (September 24 through November 5), the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts churned out 398 minutes of coverage to the Ukraine scandal, or more than three-fifths of all administration news during this period (645 minutes).
Amazingly, the mainstream media was even negative about President Trump’s role in the U.S. military operation that ended up taking out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
