During the the 2016 presidential campaigns, the mainstream media were ardent supporters of Hillary Clinton and haters of any and all Republicans, especially Donald Trump. The media could not believe nor did they want to acknowledge that Trump won the election. They continue to attack him with every breath and keystroke they take. A new poll indicates that a growing majority of Americans believe that the media is too critical of Trump.
A majority of Americans believe news organizations are too critical of President Trump, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Sunday.
Fifty-one percent of Americans said the media is too critical of Trump, while 41 percent think news organizations have been fair and objective.
The poll also found that Americans are becoming more optimistic about where the country is headed, with 40 percent saying it is headed in the right direction. In December, 33 percent felt that way, compared to 18 percent in July.
Just under half of Americans hold an unfavorable view of Trump. Forty-seven percent view the president unfavorably, compared to 43 percent who view him favorably.
