A brand new study by the Media Research Center shows that mainstream media networks gave 28 times more coverage to Trump’s “Morning Joe” tweets than they did Kate’s Law passing in the House.
In what is considered a HUGE promise kept by the Trump Administration, Kate’s Law was largely ignored by the mainstream media because it’s considered a “good” news story for Trump. If you remember, Kate’s Law was Bill O’Reilly’s idea that will impose harsher prison sentences on deportees who come back into the U.S. illegally
Instead, they wanted to focus on Trump’s twitter attacks on the crew from “Morning Joe”.
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
“News networks immediately jumped on the tweets and dedicated much of their coverage to the boiling feud between Trump and “Morning Joe,” so much so that they almost completely ignored a pair of anti-illegal immigration bills that passed in the House late Thursday.
Among the evening broadcast programs, ABC and CBS didn’t mention the immigration bills at all, and NBC only talked about them for less than 30 seconds.
NBC’s Lester Holt briefly said of the bills:
“Meantime, in Congress today, the House passed legislation to crack down on illegal immigration, one of President Trump’s top priorities. One of the bills called Kate’s Law would impose harsher prison sentences on deportees who come back into the U.S. illegally. The other bill passed would strip federal funding from so-called sanctuary cities that shield undocumented immigrants from federal immigration authorities. The bills now go to the Senate.”
The same three networks led their programs with Trump’s “Morning Joe” tweets and collectively talked about the tweets for over 12 minutes.
Kate’s Law was a go-to talking point for President Trump during both his primary and general election campaigns.”
Folks, this is the reason why NOBODY trusts the mainstream media anymore. They focus on things that nobody cares about simply to get ratings.
CNN is a nothing more than a failing pile of garbage and we hope & pray they go out of business soon. Keep your fingers crossed…
