In the twelve weeks since the party conventions concluded in late July, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has received significantly more broadcast network news coverage than his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, but nearly all of that coverage (91%) has been hostile, according to a new study by the Media Research Center (MRC).
The Obama administration finally admitted on Monday what so many critics warned would happen, that premiums were going to skyrocket.
The “Big Three” networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) put their undying loyalty to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on full display Monday evening, as they completely blacked out two news stories with explosive consequences for the campaign. “Tonight there is a new undercover video exposing direct links between the Hillary Clinton campaign and outside groups promoting her campaign,” reported Fox News’ Bret Baier on Special Report.
FELIX DE BEDOUT, ANCHOR, UNIVISION: I want to go to one of the aspects of the most recent presidential debate, and something that Hillary Clinton was asked about- and I believe that we were all left waiting for a response.

[See NewsBusters for more.] Moving past a Hillary Clinton victory, ABC now sees a Democratic Senate “likely.” Reporter Jon Karl touted his conclusion, Monday, ignoring past media botches on predictions.

[See NewsBusters for more.] NBC on Monday spun the death of Tom Hayden, a ‘60s era radical activist who spouted pro-Communist propaganda, as an “enduring voice for progressive causes.” Matt Lauer simply referred to Hayden as someone who made “trips to North Vietnam,” but never described him as extreme. ABC’s Good Morning America also avoided such judgment.
Liberal media bias has become painfully obvious during the 2016 election cycle.
