53% of the White House press corps thinks the media is biased against Trump, 47% are lying…

All these numbers are 100% embarrassing…

These are some amazing numbers…

But that’s not the whole story…

Politico surveyed 63 members of the White House press corps. Of those, only 5% were Republicans, while 16% were Democrats, 37% independents, and 37% weren’t registered to vote at all.

Let’s admit one thing right off the bat: This year’s poll is an improvement on last year’s poll of 72 press corps members, in which none — zero, zip, nada — were Republicans. You’d think there would have been at least a token GOP press-member in there, but no.

But the numbers are really worse than they look. Among those 37% “independents” are reporters who, for reasons of political deniability, call themselves independent rather than affiliating with a party. And some of those are actually farther left than the Democratic Party in their views.

So there’s just over a 3-1 ratio of Democrats to Republicans, using the poll data, but really much more like 6-to-1 or 7-to-1.

Now on to biases…

What’s surprising is that, since they are not being named individually, some are admirably frank about how they feel. Some 45% admitted that the media’s coverage is biased against Trump. Just 2% said they are biased in his favor. Another 53% said they were not biased at all, which, if you look at actual coverage of the Trump administration vs. Obama’s, is obviously false.

Again, even when the incentive is there to lie, still 53% begrudgingly acknowledge their colleagues are biased.

Let us repeat that: Nearly half of all White House correspondents admit the media’s coverage is biased against Trump.

It’s not as if average Americans don’t get it. They do.

It gets worse for the media…

A post-election poll conducted by the Media Research Center found that 69% of voters don’t believe the news media are “honest and truthful,” while 78% felt that coverage of Trump was biased. Some 59% felt the media were biased for Clinton, while just 21% said they were biased for Trump.

Those 21% that think they are biased for Trump should be in a mental institution…
