I continue to get my local paper for my wife. She reads it front to back, mostly for the local news and for the ads.
I read some local stories of interest and scan the headlines. For the most part, the national headlines are a simple regurgitation of stories from the major wire services.
Over the last several weeks I’ve made it my mission to find that needle in the haystack. A positive Trump story. Sadly I’ve failed miserably. On an average day there are as few as 1 or 2 Trump related stories, with as many as 6 or 7 Trump stories. It varies from day to day, depending on what is going on.
What I’m finding is that my local paper seems to be regurgitating MSM negative wire feeds while ignoring those small handful of positive wire feeds.
What I find to be interesting is my wife’s comments. She’s not a Trump supporter and the 100% negative coverage reinforces her perceptions. When I attempt to explain that she is only getting one side, her eyes glaze over and I know its time to move on.
Its no wonder that Trump’s approval ratings are dismal.
