What the media missed at the FCC in the first hundred days

A new report published by Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center for Media, Politics and Public Policy concludes that the first hundred days of Donald Trump’s presidency have been marked by an unprecedented level of negative stories and an overwhelming focus on the president to the exclusion of other, substantive news; specifically, the president was the subject of 41 percent of all stories, which is three times more than any president’s coverage ever. The study is based on print editions of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post; the main newscasts of CBS, CNN, Fox News, and NBC; and three European news outlets, which are the United Kingdom’s Financial Times, BBC, and Germany’s ARD.
