Pew Research Center has released an extensive report on the media coverage of President Trump’s first 100 days.  There are a lot of interesting tidbits throughout, but the overriding conclusion is the right-leaning outlets were more neutral in their coverage than left-leaning or “mixed” outlets.

Being Houston-based, I watched in disgust as the national press corps attempted to politicize Hurricane Harvey and the resultant White House response, going so far as mocking the First Lady’s shoes.

None of the attacks stuck as story after story from the ground proved the press corps wrong.

The entire first hour of today’s Morning Joe was one, long, hyperventilation over President Trump’s press conference of yesterday.

During a press conference Tuesday President Trump once again commented on the violence in Charlottesville. Naturally, his remarks were instantly mischaracterized to portray Trump as condoning the very neo-Nazis and white supremacists he condemned in a brief speech Monday.
