Almost 90 percent of the nightly news broadcasts during President Donald Trump's first month in office presented negative reporting of his administration, according to a new analysis.

The Media Research Center concluded that the three major national news networks dedicated 54 percent of their time, or 16 hours, reporting on the president and his staff. Of that reporting, 88 percent of it was negative.

Last year during the presidential campaign, the Media Research Center found that 91 percent of the reporting on Trump was negative during the three major national news broadcasts.

The largest controversy, at least in the eyes of the nightly news, was Trump's temporary ban on immigration from seven nations with a terror presence. Trump signed the directive Jan. 27, although it has since been placed on hold as the court system looks at it.

Trump is expected to unveil an updated order soon.

The national news broadcasts dedicated 188 minutes to the immigration story, while reporters and anchors sometimes made political statements against it either with their words or actions. For example, NBC's Lester Holt anchored the Jan. 30 news in front of the Statue of Liberty.

Trump and the members of his administration have repeatedly bashed the news media for what they feel is an unfair bias against him.
