The news media: 44 percent vs. 55 percent
Every single institution responding to the Chinese virus, even congress, is above water by more than 20 points.
Every single institution responding to the Chinese virus is way above 50 percent in public approval, except for the news media, which sit at a paltry 44 percent.
In worse news for the media, only 61 percent of Democrats approve of the media’s job, which means 39 percent of Democrats see right through them, right through their legion of coronavirus lies and their relentlessly appalling attempts to continue to try and score political points against Trump, even during an unprecedented medical and financial crisis.
What I think happened is that after the media deceptively edited his run-in with NBC’s Peter Alexander, Trump decided he needed to move the briefings to a time when millions more Americans would be able to watch live.
