Washington Times: Press coverage of Trump in first month of office: 88 percent ‘hostile,’ says new study

There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office.

The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for the month.

WNU Editor: I live in Canada .... English press coverage is 95% hostile. On french media (in the province of Quebec) .... the coverage is 100% rock solid hostile. On Russian media .... it is now split (before it was about 80% favourable). I also closely follow Chinese media .... with all the ups and down in U.S. - China relations since the election of President trump ... I find the coverage is neutral.

Update: This is how biased the media has become .... Reuters directs reporters to cover Trump like an authoritarian regime (South Live).

This is surreal. At least I think this is the word I'm looking for.

No offense to Russia your native country editor but we were taught Russia and China were authoritarian and lacked a free press whereas America and the "west" were non-authoritarian and had a free press. Mow it seems like the countries that supposedly lack a free press or freedom of speech have much more reliable news sources than the so called "free" countries of America and the "west."
