Fake news! He gets a well deserved 99% of negative press coverage.

The 1% is Fox News.

Question:

Do you guys really mistrust "mainstream" media?

What part of what say, NYT, is supposed to be negative or false?

One of the reasons I despise Trump is his attacks on the free press. The effects of that will be felt for generations, and I'm shocked to see that it is not a thing exclusive to Trump supporters.

Yes, I mistrust every news outlet. You always have to dig deeper into the facts to get the actual news without a slant. Alternative media is biased as well but most progressive media will be upfront with their biases and slants, even so you still can't take their news at face value as well. Always look at the sources and look at where, from who, and how those sources got that info and judge for yourself.

If the effect lasts as long as you believe it will, the increased mistrust of MSM will be one of the biggest boons Trump has ever--incidentally--given to the American electorate.  I stress incidentally because it's really part and parcel for each administration to have a less-friendly attitude towards those who cast them in a negative light, even if 45 has elevated it to an art form.  It's never really been something that's exclusive to MAGA-hats either.  Moreso, there's never been a more advantageous time for MSM to strive for clickbait headlines that deceptively skew the plainer facts of the matter.

We're also talking about the same MSM (at least the majority) who assisted in goading the general public into Iraq, and the subsequent million+ civilians killed as a result.  

EDIT:  I guess when you've seen so much misdirection, BOMBSHELL preemptive reports only corrected 12 hours later, etc. etc. I can't help but wonder who in their right mind would still trust them.

Only 7% of journalist identify as Republicans, as opposed to ca. 50% of the electorate.

You're mistaking party identification with party lean. They are different things. Both, either way, are smaller for the GOP than you believe them to be.

Warren is claiming that Facebook changed their political ad policy after a meeting with Trump. There is no evidence to back this up.
