Media:negative coverage of President Trump in order to erode his popularity among Rep

Liberal New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman said the news media should work together and saturate the public with negative coverage of President Trump in order to erode his popularity among Republican voters.

Friedman said in an op-ed published Wednesday afternoon that if the media emphasize Trump’s personality instead of news about the strong economy, it may discourage enough GOP voters from continuing to support the president and benefit Democrats.

“Some healthy soul searching is taking place in newsrooms across the country these days over whether the mainstream media should be covering President Trump’s every tweet and rally,” Friedman wrote. “My answer: Absolutely! It’s the right thing for us to do professionally, and, as last night’s election results indicated, it’s the right thing to do politically if you want to see a check on Donald Trump’s power.”

And people wonder why media is not trusted.

They're already doing this.

When a president's approval rating is near 50% and the media's coverage is 92% negative you know there is serious bias in the news.

Yep! Can you imagine what his numbers would be, if they were just a little bit balanced.

Meanwhile, polls show already more think media coverage of Trump has been unfair and most don't believe the Russian narrative.

Don't trust the media because they want to cover Trumps tweets and rallys.

OMG, they're just not fair. They want to show everyone what kind of person Trump is!!

Would you feel better if they just licked his boots like FAUX News?

Character still matters to some voters. I realize that doesn't include most Trump backers but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be brought to peoples attention.

Name a part of Hussein's body or wardrobe that the rest of the media didn't lick. Go ahead, I'll wait. You remember him, right? Trump's cop hating, America hating, jobs hating, foreigner loving useless ****ing **** of a predecessor, who's typical press grilling involved the gushing talking heads asking him about his favorite color.

Don't understand what this proves. He's saying the media should cover Trump and what he says. He's talking to media members that feel like giving up.

I really enjoy how people on here pretend that the "media" exclusively consists of CNN and whatever other "libtard" news outlets they want to scream and cry about.

It's 2018 folks, not 1968. Maybe some grandmas still exclusively rely on ABC news or whatever, but at this point in time, people can take in their news through whatever forum and with whatever biases they want. But hey, keep blaming the media instead of Trump for Trump's mediocre approval ratings.

QFT. And thank goodness a good portion of the country is aware of the high levels of TDS virus infecting the brains of the MSM.

No, this has nothing to do with covering the story. This is about using the media to influence voters:

This is one persons opinion piece saying it's his opinion that by reporting what Trump tweets and says at his rallys will erode Trumps popularity. It might do that and it might not.
Look around, you can find opinions posted about all kinds of shit.

Trumptards are acting like this is some directive by the heads of major news networks.
It's called hyperbole, the Trumptards favorite game.

This is what happens after 8 years of a beta male in the office.

Boo-hoo, he didnt smile and say "welp, hu-huh....maybe I better ask Michelle first...huh-huh...."

Judge the man on results, not on what kind of person he is (which is mostly what side of the aisle you're on subjective anyways).
