Media Bias: How Democrats and Republicans Differ in Their Views of Events [Videos]

Craig Huey Current Events, Government, Congress, and Politics 1 Comment

The media bias in America is very real … and very unfair.

96% of all local and national media coverage of President Trump is slanted negatively.

92% of all local and national media coverage of conservative Republicans is slanted negatively.

84% of all local and national media coverage of Christians, pastors and churches is slanted negatively.

So, how do Democrats and those leaning toward socialism feel about the media?

38% of Democrats said the media impacts society in a positive way – according to Pew Research.

Only 10% of Republicans felt the media has a positive impact.

Here’s a recent example of how differently Democrats and Republicans viewed the same event – a White House meeting between congressional leaders and President Trump regarding his decision to bring our troops home from northern Syria.

The troop withdrawal received strong criticism from both Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives … so the president convened a meeting with the leaders to explain his decision and his foreign policy objectives and plans for the region going forward.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer stormed out of the meeting and accused the president of having a “meltdown.”

Republican leaders on the other hand said Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were the ones who suffered the meltdown.

Why do you think the perceptions of Democrats and Republicans are so different?

Watch this account of the meeting by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats who walked out of the meeting (7 ½ minutes).

Watch this account of the meeting from House minority leader Steve Scalise (6 ¾ minutes).

  1. Hello Craig, I’ve followed your Election Forum, voted by it and recommended it to 100s of others for +/-15 years. Thank you so very much for those exhaustive efforts.
    I’ve very seldom read your alerts but always enjoyed them (so busy) and will read more from now on. This is something that’s always boggled me:
    How can the we, the public, know which perspective is correct (if any)? I think the best way is to let us watch the discussion ourselves rather than through the lenses of others. THEN, when we hear Pelosi’s comments, we know confidently, whether she’s honest or not.
    Conservatives tend to trust other conservatives but they are often biased too, as evidenced by their occasional negative/sarcastic labels or comments. Why does news media give us most news second hand thus potentially skewed, rather than straight from the horses mouth? Even you did here, Craig. Commentary afterwards is great, but let us, the public, form our opinions on first hand fact, not other’s opinions (yours, Fox’s, or anyone’s). We all know the telephone ☎️ game distorts truth – whether intended or not. It seems almost all media doesn’t want us to know the truth.
    Sincerely, & a grateful voter, Ed
