A study by the Media Research Center put a number on the amount of negative coverage President Trump receives across the mainstream media. MRC reviewed “every mention” of the president and top administration officials and discovered he was covered negatively 91% of the time by ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News.

In the month or so after the inauguration, the news media couldn’t get enough of its own theories of Trump’s Russia “connection.” That dominated the news cycle early on. When that grew tiresome, the press moved on (kind of) to the Obamacare repeal failure, followed by the North Korea crisis, and then the president’s reaction to the violence in Charlottesville. January was the strongest month for airtime devoted to Trump, but coverage has declined each month since. However, that may not last forever.

The MRC study also included this amazing fact:

As of August 31, coverage of the administration has totaled nearly 74 hours (4,418 minutes) of airtime, or about 39 percent of all evening news coverage.

For comparison purposes, coverage of the Obama administration in all of 2015 and 2016 totaled 59 hours (3,544 minutes), or roughly 10 percent of the available broadcast airtime. In other words, Trump has already received more coverage in his first 224 days in office than Obama received in his final two years as President.

Meanwhile, folks like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar continue to push the idea that Trump is more positively covered than Obama. No one knows what world The View ladies are actually living in.

If they could just read the chart below, maybe their eyes would be opened:
