President Donald Trump seized on a recent report by the Media Research Center that said broadcast networks have hammered his administration over the summer, and slammed the New York Times for not running Brett Kavanaugh’s “victory” on the front page.

“Despite so many positive events and victories, Media Reseach [sic] Center reports that 92% of stories on Donald Trump are negative on ABC, CBS and ABC. It is FAKE NEWS!” Trump posted to Twitter. “Don’t worry, the Failing New York Times didn’t even put the Brett Kavanaugh victory on the Front Page yesterday-A17!” 

The MRC, a conservative media watchdog, said its study of 1,007 evening news stories on ABC, NBC and CBS from June 1-Sept. 30 revealed the most hostile coverage of a U.S. president in TV news history. Just 8 percent of coverage was positive, per the MRC, despite a portfolio of good economic news.

During the four-month period, the three networks aired 342 minutes of coverage on the Russia collusion investigation, 97 percent of which was negative, and 308 minutes on immigration policies, 94 percent of which was negative. Kavanaugh’s nomination took up 291 minutes, 82 percent of which was negative.

The booming economy, though, netted just 14 minutes of airtime with positive coverage.
