I have to agree. Corporations got tax cuts under Trump, and the majority of the media are still leaning far left and against Trump. They just hate him because they are "fake news"? Or is there more behind it? $500 Billion in annual trade deficit is an awful lot of money....Chinese manipulation anyone?


Only 6 corporations control 90% of the media.

Oh please, FOX isn't balanced...they cater to the right.

The others cater to the left.

Just because you're to the right of Zebra in the the dictionary doesn't make FOX the middle.

No matter how much you dislike him, it is not balanced reporting if 90+% of all stories of a sitting president are negative. He meets with people receiving awards, he holds Easter egg hunts, he signs feel good things, economic numbers for certain demographics have improved, and so forth. The “news” entities in our nation have put themselves in a position where a concerningly large percentage of the nation no longer believes them, let alone trusts them.
In those graphics, it revealed the problem journalism faces. Some key findings:

The press led institutions for which the public has the lowest confidence.

Of all demographic groups, only Democrats expressed a positive confidence in the press.
