Froomkin’s analysis of Trump coverage is excellent. However, I think the main reason the media gives him so much coverage is that their ratings were better when he was president. I watch less TV because I am disgusted that they still give him and his dangerous lies so much coverage.
This is more accurate:
and there’s this:
another bad one
Trump supporters have to lie in order to defend Trump’s lies. The media should not put liars on TV to spread garbage. I am all for a balanced approach as long as both sides tell the truth. Trump wins when the media reports his endless lies.
Hannity should have told his viewers that he had consulted Cohen for legal advice. (I am skeptical that it was about real estate – it appears Cohen’s specialty is paying off people who could adversely affect his clients.)
What did Fox knows? This column says Fox should conduct an investigation.
I wonder what Hannity did!
Notice that 80% of Republicans but only 6% of Democrats think the news organizations make up negative stories about Trump. Sad!
Everything for Trump is based on what’s on TV. In this case, he tries to manipulate the coverage but Fox News is already his equivalent of Russia’s RT. He should just move the Fox News studio into the White House and cut out the TV set.
