Media Research Center Study: "Broadcasters Air 150 Times More Negative News on Trump Than Biden"

A NewsBusters study has found that evening newscasts are basically leftist Democrat propaganda by a "corrupt media":

Evening news has aired a plethora of negative stories against President Donald Trump while virtually ignoring presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, a study found.

NewsBusters, a project of watchdog Media Research Center, analyzed ABC, CBS, and NBC evening newscasts from June 1 through July 31. Analysts found that the shows spent 512 minutes of airtime on Trump, nine times more than the 58 minutes they allotted to Biden.

But that extra airtime was almost entirely negative toward Trump.

Analysts at the center found 634 of 668 evaluative statements about the president were negative, compared to 4 of 12 for Biden.

“It shows a news media that is tired of being an umpire, they want to be a player,” Rich Noyes, research director at the center, told The Epoch Times.

“They’d rather be the opposition to Donald Trump than let Joe Biden do the job.”

ABC News, NBC News, and CBS News didn’t respond to requests for comment on the study.

Courtney Parella, deputy national press secretary for the Trump campaign, told The Epoch Times in an emailed statement: “We didn’t need a study to prove what we already know. The mainstream media is openly biased against President Trump, and they are fooling themselves if they think the American people can’t see through it.”

In a typical campaign season, broadcasts would devote time to both candidates. The uneven treatment stems in part from Biden not holding campaign events for months during the COVID-19 pandemic, Noyes said, but the former vice president is still speaking on a daily basis, has plans out for what he would implement if elected, and faces scandals including a sexual assault allegation.

Forty percent, or 23.5 minutes, of the Biden-focused coverage aired Biden’s criticisms of Trump, while just 0.25 percent, or 88 seconds, of Trump-focused coverage consisted of relaying Trump’s criticisms of the presumptive nominee.

“It’s as if they’re not trusting the public to make up their minds properly if they were given both sides,” Noyes said. “They’re squandering any credibility they might have as journalists and showing that they’re partisan actors.”

The study included explicitly evaluative statements about Trump or Biden from reporters, anchors, or nonpartisan sources such as experts or voters. It didn’t include evaluations or comments from partisan sources, or neutral statements.

Trump has regularly described many reporters as biased against him.

“My biggest opponent isn’t Biden, it’s not the Democrats, it’s the corrupt media. We have a corrupt media in this country the likes of which nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump said in a phone interview with “Fox & Friends” on Aug. 17.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
