Oh, no-one doubts that most of the media hate the lying fucker.
 
Media here were just the same about the Yorkshire Ripper. I can't
recall a good word said about him.
 
Great for ratings; shit for the country.

CNN takes the lead. Not shocking to me.

No, actually.
 
None of the writer's conclusions said anything about bias:
 
'Findings include:
 
President Trump dominated media coverage in the outlets and programs
analyzed, with Trump being the topic of 41 percent of all news
stories—three times the amount of coverage received by previous
presidents. He was also the featured speaker in nearly two-thirds of his
coverage.
 
Republican voices accounted for 80 percent of what newsmakers said about
the Trump presidency, compared to only 6 percent for Democrats and 3
percent for those involved in anti-Trump protests.
 
European reporters were more likely than American journalists to
directly question Trump's fitness for office.
 
Trump has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency,
without a single major topic where Trump's coverage, on balance, was
more positive than negative, setting a new standard for unfavorable
press coverage of a president.
 
Fox was the only news outlet in the study that came close to giving
Trump positive coverage overall, however, there was variation in the
tone of Fox's coverage depending on the topic.'

There's the actual report. Feel free to provide quotes that agree with
the "American Thinker's" spin.

Speaking of bias. Maybe you should just read the study instead of relying on the spin from some far-right advocacy site.

You can be sure "The New American" will never mention this part of the
report they spun (and I apologize for my error as to the name):
 
'Never in the nation's history has the country had a president with so
little fidelity to the facts, so little appreciation for the dignity of
the presidential office, and so little understanding of the
underpinnings of democracy.'

Greg is a perfect exemplar of "confirmation bias"...

The article was about negativity, and the author equated that with
bias. The overwhelming negativity about Trump is because of his
absolute idiocy, his lies, his gaffes, his ego and above all his
inadequacy to fulfill the office of the President. Bias is generally
about preconditioned thoughts, not responses after actions. IMO the
media isn't as biased as they are reporting his inadequacies.

Who is it that can't accept that? Those I know that don't like it,
accept it as fact.

They won the popular vote by 3m and picked up seats in the House and Senate.

That has been pointed out to you several times. You don't listen.

What failures? Hillary's were about three or four states that had
electoral votes. North Carolina was just told by the federal court
that their gerrymandering was illegal, more to come.

What if that were the case, Greg?

He said he won't be indicted...
 
...doesn't mean he won't be impeached.
