Tucker Calls Out Media Bias, 'Progressive Activists Posing as Reporters'
Tucker Carlson said on his program tonight that the liberal bias in the mainstream media is obvious in the stories they choose to cover, and possibly even more obvious in the stories they ignore.
"About the only people who deny widespread media bias these days are the people who are directly benefiting from it," Tucker said. "And that would include progressive activists posing as reporters, and the Democratic politicians whose water they carry."
Tucker noted a recent Harvard University study that found that 80 percent of the media's coverage of President Trump's first 100 days was negative.
"It's not really news coverage at that point. It's advocacy," Tucker said, adding that the issue isn't just the reporting on Trump himself, but also the reporting on the policies that Trump and his voters favor.
Tucker pointed out that the Harvard study also found that 96 percent of news coverage of Trump's immigration policies was negative, compared to just four percent positive.
He noted that there have been multiple reports about how Trump's policies are hurting illegal immigrants, while stories about Americans hurt by illegal immigration are few and far between.
He added that most television news is even more "distorted."
"That's news with a message at its core, just like in a political campaign, which in many ways is exactly what this is," Tucker concluded.
