MRC’s Gainor: Media Covers Trump’s Success Only When They ‘Absolutely Have To’

MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor scolded the liberal media’s coverage of good economic news under the Trump administration.

“They are giving no coverage to the good news except when they absolutely have to,” Gainor declared during a March 10, appearance on Intelligence Report with Trish Regan.

Gainor explained that just two days ago ADP reported 100,000 more jobs than predicted but “ABC, CBS, and NBC didn't cover it at all.”

During a recent span of 12 consecutive sessions of record highs for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, “we looked and there were only seven NBC, CBS, or NBC evening news stories” Gainor told Regan and Fox Business Network viewers.

“The American people want to talk about jobs. They want to talk about their retirement accounts. They want to talk about the stock market because they care about pocketbook issues,” Gainor said. But the media want “to talk about everything else.”

Regan agreed and concluded that economic issues may be “a little too sophisticated” for the liberal news media.
