CNN’s John Berman went full fake news Sunday to make Fox News look bad based on a Harvard study of the media’s coverage of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
Berman poses his question, priming his audience for some ripe fake news:
“Is the White House besieged by crisis . . . or is President Trump besieged by the media attempting a sort of coup?”
“It really all depends on where you turn your dial to get your news. This is according to a new study from the Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media Politics that analyzed news coverage of the President’s first 100 days and found that the coverage quote ‘set a new standard for unfavorable coverage of a President, with Fox News being the only outlet where the majority of the coverage was positive.”
CNN displays this graphic following Berman’s statement:
Those numbers only reflect a portion of the study’s findings, specifically the breakdown of news reports regarding the president’s fitness for office.
The Daily Caller continues:
While the study found that Fox News did provide the most favorable coverage of all television outlets, the split was much more fair and balanced, with 52 percent of the network’s reporting featuring a “negative” tone while only 48 percent was “positive.”
The CNN, on the other hand, portrays a much more obvious bias with 93% of their content featuring a “negative” spin.
