Media Coverage of Trump Government's Flaws May be Backfiring

His job approval in this poll is 44/48 and his favorable rating is 43/47, broadly in line with the margin of the popular vote in November, which makes the numbers on how the media's been treating him so interesting. But there are other signs that the opposite may be true.

President Donald Trump's job approval rating is a mere 44 percent, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll published Sunday finds, further documenting the skepticism with which the public views the former reality TV star's short time in the White House. Spicer has already shown himself to be combative with the news media, and Trump himself continues to decry established media outlets, such as CNN and The New York Times as "fake news" and now, "very fake news" (emphasis mine).

"The poll asked 1,000 people if "the news media and other elites" are exaggerating the problems with the Trump administration".

Another 45 percent found coverage to be fairly well-balanced, a similar percentage of people who thought the coverage of Trump was fair.

The survey underscores public relations challenges facing the media as well as Mr. Trump. Their ability to communicate effectively has only grown in the technological age, with social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook serving to provide additional ways for people to receive their news and stay informed.

Backstage, Jenkins said its tale of a poor, young, black kid in Miami stood in stark contrast to President Donald Trump's administration.

On Friday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer moved to ban numerous so-called corporatist and globalist media outlets/enemies from the White House briefing room.

This prompted his fierce rival, John McCain, to hyperbolically suggest that Trump might be on the path to creating a dictatorship, an exaggerated warning which was happily received and echoed by the Mainstream Media, demonstrating that politics does indeed make for odd bedfellows considering just how much this very same media hated the Senator two elections ago when he was running for President. Last fall, a poll done by Gallup found that only 32% of those surveyed said they had either a great deal or a fair amount of trust in the media, down from more than 50% in 1997.

As an African though, I would say that there is something good that came out of them.

And a majority of respondents to the poll - 57 percent - also said that Trump is likely to "bring real change in the direction of the country".

Trump's personal favorability rating stands at 85 percent positive among Republicans, compared to just 34 percent positive among independents and nine percent among Democrats.

President Richard Nixon didn't love the press, and plenty other presidents were critical at times. So instead of encouraging people to be more skeptical or critical of the Trump administration, these stories are instead seen as evidence of bias on the media's part. Not saying that this wouldn't have happened without the Democrat media complex, but they sure do know how to fan the flames. And the Journal/NBC News poll suggests that this strategy may be having some impact on the way people see the president.
