Trump gets spotlight with 291 minutes of indictment coverage, Biden gets zero seconds

 June 16, 2023

Former President Donald Trump continues to live in the spotlight, because the media networks know that putting him on screen garners more views.

The Big Three networks have turned all their cameras to the Trump, and as a result, they practically abandoned covering President Joe Biden and all of his shady business deals.

"While Biden’s own classified documents scandal is important, and he is also tied up in bribery allegations linked to his scandal-plagued son Hunter Biden, TV executives apparently have decided that wall-to-wall coverage of Trump is the key to success," reported the Washington Examiner.

The Media Research Center teamed up with Secrets for the Monday "Liberal Media Scream" feature.

"ABC, CBS, and NBC have devoted all of their scandal coverage to Trump and none to Biden or the first son," the Examiner reported.

The numbers are utterly shocking.

"In a report from MRC’s Newsbusters, the three have devoted 291 minutes to Trump and zero time to Biden’s scandals," according to the report. "That is not just a Grand Canyon-sized gap, but figuring each full half-hour newscast devotes 20 minutes to news and the rest to advertising, that amounts to nearly 15 shows devoted to nothing but Trump."

"Over four days (June 8-June 12), the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) broadcast networks predictably crammed their evening, morning, and Sunday roundtable shows with a total of 291 minutes of coverage dedicated to the Trump indictment," said the report from the director of media analysis at the Media Research Center, Geoffrey Dickens.

"The double standard is breathtaking," he added.

Trump is good, however, at using the negative coverage to his advantage and seizing the opportunity.

The former president's polling numbers and fundraising tallies continue to soar despite the horrific reporting on his recent indictment.
