A scientific analysis of media bias against Trump

At The Center for Public Integrity, an analysis of journalist donations to the Clinton and Trump campaigns.

Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton: About 430 people who work in journalism have, through August, combined to give about $382,000 to the Democratic nominee, the Center for Public Integrity’s analysis indicates.

About 50 identifiable journalists have combined to give about $14,000 to Trump. (Talk radio ideologues, paid TV pundits and the like — think former Trump campaign manager-turned-CNN commentator Corey Lewandowski — are not included in the tally.)

Unfortunately, the 50 who gave to Trump are not identified in the article. I assume that none of them do traditional journalism for major news media. For example, I bet that 100% of journalists at the NY Times are not voting for Trump.

  2. “A scientific analysis of media bias against Trump”

    I wonder if anyone disagrees with this? I mean if they were being honest with themselves… Pretty non-controversial stuff, I’d say.

    So we have more “proof” than ever. What doesnt it matter since apparently everyone is quite shameless about it now. It was pretty clear from 2012 that the media had their thumb on their scale and even before that from the Journolist scandal.

    But the current environment is that clickbait advocacy articles disguised as straight news get views. And that is the currency.

  4. Conservative types generally don’t go into journalism. There are very few avenues to wealth, and the prestige is middling. If they do, they generally become very moderate politically.

    But, this is beside the point. It’s not media bias that’s bringing down Trump. It’s Trump.

    He has left himself exposed by years of low-class public sleaze behavior. The word ‘discretion’ is unknown to him. I have no doubt that Bill Clinton has said “worse on the golf course,” but he never went on known-perv Howard Stern’s show to discuss things like his own daughter’s body, nor did he participate in a schlocky beauty pageant for the purposes of ogling women or get divorced twice.

    These are all behaviors of the American underclass. Had Trump not inherited extreme wealth, he’d be hosting wet t-shirt competitions at skeezy Fort Lauterdale bars. All well and good, but not presidential.

    The conservative proletariate sticks by Trump because he’s one of them. They’ve deified him for his wealth and revelled in the plain mean-spiritedness of his campaign– “Trump that Bitch,” being the true campaign slogan as displayed on their prole garb.

    All of this is what’s turning off the majority of people who believe the office of the presidency carries a level of importance and prestige that such a man as Trump would degrade and defile.

    Your championing of him will come to be seen as one of the most misguided choices of an otherwise wise man.

      As I keep pointing out, Trump has top-upper-class wealth but behaves prole. That’s why the proles like him. The prole were put off by Romney’s proper aristocratic demeanor.

      • The proles were put off by the FBHO ad blitz in the swing states during the summer of ’12; when Romney couldn’t run ads in reply, because he wasn’t the nominee yet. Those were the ads about sending jobs overseas, he was rich, he fired people, and all the other sins. If you weren’t in a swing state, you never saw those ads, but they worked on the proles who lacked any other source of information about Romney. So they stayed home, morons….

    • …and for the privilege of clutching your pearls over relatively irrelevant matters, you’ll never get what you want if it is in line with what Trump supporters want.

      You can have your social signalling or your political result, but you can’t have both. Democrats realized this slightly before they executed the Romanovs, and have been using it to crush Conservatives ever since.

      Whoever thinks that the Presidency carries legitimate prestige, beyond that determined by American proles, is a prole of the worst order.

      Lion, is an article on the Veritas video coming? I’m just curious. The MSM has blacked out the story, probably because they would be complicit in having made violence at Trump rallies a major issue for so long, but I hope to see wide coverage in alt right style media.

  5. All this silly talk about the “dignity” of the office of POTUS, come on. Have you ever read about Kennedy, Johnson, or Bill Clinton? LBJ use to pull out his giant schlong and wave it at senators to intimidate them (yes, he literally did this). He also schlonged his secretary on top of her desk. JFK had naked pool parties in the White House with the secretarial staff. Sometimes the Secret Service had to run into the pool area and break the party up because Jackie was coming home. Everyone would scramble to dry off and get their clothes back on before the First Lady made it back. Bill Clinton inserted cigars into 20 year old interns in the Oval Orifice…er…Office. The “dignity” of the office doesn’t seem to be a problem for the media when it’s a Democrat.

    some great LBJ quotes:

    “Ford’s economics are the worst thing that’s happened to this country since pantyhose ruined finger-fucking.”
    -LBJ, dignified POTUS

    “Son, when I appoint a ni**er to the court, I want everyone to know he’s a ni**er.”

  6. I have a friend who is perhaps the only Trump supporter who is also a fierce defender of the MSM. He heavily consumes CNN, NPR, and the L.A Times and insists they are fair, unbiased and give both sides of the story. He refuses to read any link I send him from a non-MSM source and calls it “rigmarole”. Yet he is the most outspoken, passionate Trump supporter you could ever find. He is always wearing Trump t-shirts and engages everyone he comes in contact with. He even goes as far as hunting down Hillary signs and removing them from people’s yards in the middle of the night. Trump himself often mentions the media is against him yet somehow my friend maintains his pro-MSM/pro Trump dichotomy.

As always he was wearing a Trump T-shirt and I was heartened by how much positive feedback he was getting. More “I love your shirt” comments than I can remember. People even wanted to take pictures with him. Based on the love he gets in public he is convinced Trump is going to win. He thinks I’m far too pessimistic. We’ll find out soon enough.

    • Most likely he’s Jewish. Prole Jews vote as opportunistic constituents. They choose the candidate best fitted for office, regardless of party affiliation, unlike guidos who are usually de facto Republicans.

      Brooklyn’s Haredim are voting for Trump. They’ve always supported Sheldon Silver and Chuck Schumer.

      • No, he is full blooded Italian. Yet his voting behavior is similar to what you say is typical prole Jew. He votes for the person, not the party (and repeats that line an annoying amount of times). Hopefully this isn’t a bad omen but he has never voted for a winner. Here is who he has voted for through the years.

        1988 Dukakis
        1992 Perot
        1996 Dole
        2000 Gore
        2004 Kerry
        2008 Didn’t vote
        2012 Didn’t vote

        He had the same obsessive compulsive passion for Kerry as he has for Trump today. He didn’t care for either candidate in 2008 and 2012 and totally ignored those elections. His 1992 vote for Perot means populists have always had strong appeal to him.

      • Mario Cuomo, perhaps the most famous of Italian American Democrats, never cared much for the black community. He often made empty gestures to them. Moreover, he supported the secession of Staten Island during the 1980s, which was ultimately stomped like a crushed bug. I don’t know the exact reasons for it, but Jewish politician Sheldon Silver was purportedly behind this failure. Jews are quite receptive of black people, while Italians are not. This I know for a fact, being a very observative person living in NYC. Jews believe in universalism, while Italians believe in provincialism. Interestingly, these 2 ethnic groups were living side by side with each other in lower Manhattan as immigrants, and look how they evolved so differently.

      • Dewds with Aspergers — I always think, “here’s a guy I can relate to,” but no, they don’t have any trippy flow in their mindspace. I mean, they’re not deficient human beings like Park Slopers, and you can like them in the way you’d like a non-malevolent Bugman from Planet 9, but you can’t hang out with them. Which reminds me of a discovery I made that might interest about half of yuze guys, the half of you who are half-Jews. Ever wonder why the only people you feel comfortable hanging out with are other half-Jews? Well, I’ll tell you why. Because people who aren’t Jewish at all won’t talk about anything interesting; it’s just sailboats and sports teams and weather with them, drifting lazily from one trivial thing to the next. And people who are all Jewish insist on focusing in on some one interesting topic and analyzing it all the way through and adducing all of the latest research on it and proving that they’re right about it. While people who are half-Jewish move through a series of interesting topics in an associative way, resulting in the sort of trippy conversation that’s the only tolerable form of social intercourse for us. You see what I mean? The same way the non-Jews float from sailboats to sports teams to weather we half-Jews float from theology to space colonization to Renaissance art. (Yes, I know I’m just running my mental mouth off — but that’s what we half-Jews do.)

  9. As this article says, the the vast majority of journalists do not give political contributions.

    So of the minority of so-called journalists that give political contributions, 96% went to Clinton.

    Most major news organization have policies against their journalists making political contributions. The line between journalism and opinion has gotten badly blurred in the last 20 years. Since they did not post the list of journalists that made contributions, it is hard to tell how many are even pretending to do unbiased journalism.

    Although I suspect that most journalists favor Clinton, there still are a lot of journalists writing very biased anti-Clinton stories. Look at all the stories that were written that basically said

    “Mr A gave money to the Clinton foundation. Mr A asked State Department for favor. State Department said no. Mr A never got his favor. This raises questions about the Clinton Foundation and the State Department.”

    Wong. This answers the question of whether Mr A got any favors from the State Department for his Clinton Foundation gift. He didn’t.

    News organization dug through all the Clinton Foundation records trying to come up with some actual example of someone getting a favor from the State Department because they were a Clinton Foundation donor. They could not come up with a single plausible case, but you would never realize that from the headlines and all the stories they wrote.

    Now we have an FBI memo of a meeting with some State Department official where classification of some Clinton emails was discussed and an FBI request to get agents into Iraq was also discussed. Depending on what news source you read, the State Department was either offering a bribe, the FBI was demanding a favor in return, or the two issues were totally unrelated and only discussed at the same meeting. And this meeting happened long after Clinton left the State Department and before the FBI investigation of her email began.

    Why is this story the headline in my local newspaper? The headlines and stories are written as if there was something illegal about this meeting, but there is no evidence of that from the memo. In the end the FBI classified the email by their standards and ignored the State Department request. The FBI never got any agents in Iraq. There was no quid pro quo and it is not clear from the memo that these issues were even discussed that way. Hillary was long gone from the State Department anyway.

    Why is a story like that even new worthy much less a front page headline.

    The media may well not like Trump, but the idea that they are giving Clinton all favorable coverage is nonsense.

    • What about the Clinton foundation donor who got appointed to the Nuclear intelligence committee despite lack of scientific, policy or military experience?:

      Camlost

      October 18, 2016 at 3:24 pm

      • The board he was appointed to was the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB). The ABC story describes this board as a nuclear security and intelligence advisory board. However in 2014 this board issued a report discussing cyber security In financial industry. This a topic that Raj Fernando was very qualified to address.

        It is certainly possible that Raj Fernando was added to the board in 2011 so the board had the expertise to address questions about cyber security and the financial sector. Apparently some other members of the board, who may not have known they would be asked to address cyber security, complained to ABC about his appointment. ABC started asking questions of the State Department. It is quite possible not many people in the State Department knew that the board was going to expand the issues it was addressing.

        Raj Fernando founded a Chicago trading company that specialized in electronic trading. He was also a board member of American Security Project at the Brookings Institution. General Stephen A. Cheney, ISAB member and CEO of American Security Project, described Fernando as a expert in cyber-security and a great asset to national security.

        This is yet another example of the media blowing something up into a scandal that really is not.

        mikeca

        October 18, 2016 at 8:43 pm

      • Wow thats quite a exercise in ex post facto reasoning.

        The facts are if Fernando was added because he “had the expertise to address questions about cyber security and the financial sector” then it would have been easy to explain the reasoning. Instead we have people scrambling around at State trying to figure out what the justification was. Not just other board members- the very Department he got nominated from didnt know the reason- other than he was added by Cheryl Mills. Cheryl Mills is a Hillary lawyer and advisor and knows nothing about finance, cyber security or nuclear threats and would have no reason to select Fernando other than political ones.

        Thats what the emails at the time show- no one knew why Fernando was being added.

        Then when someone asked questions about Fernando he promptly resigns. If he was so important to the report (which didnt come out for another 3 years) why did he drop out and why couldnt he explain what he was supposed to contribute???

        Why when he was question about his appointment at the DNC could he not come up with the reason you provide for his appointment?

        Why in the intervening years has the ISAB never replaced his slot as boiler room commodity trader if it was so necessary?
        http://www.state.gov/t/avc/isab/c27632.htm
        There is no such person on the current or past members list. He is the only person with his thin qualifications who was every on it.

        Further if you look at the actual report, it was produced by a group where no one has a profile like Fernando. They are professors, military or office holders. If we expand the list to people who the authors consulted we see that they didnt talk to Fernando at all. And on top of that there is no one who fits Fernando’s description consulted.
        http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/229235.pdf
        The idea that Fernando was needed for “expertise” for a report that wouldnt produced for another 3 years simply doesnt hold water. There is literally no evidence for that interpretation- probably because it is just being grafted on as a defense this year.

        “General Stephen A. Cheney, ISAB member and CEO of American Security Project, described Fernando as a expert in cyber-security and a great asset to national security.”

        What you left out of this talking point (copied almost verbatim from Media Maters) is that General Cheney didnt offer that appraisal until June of this year, and it was a limp tweet in support of someone who is a donor to his think tank. Raj Fernando is not listed on their staff or fellows page but is on the Board of Directors, along with a guy froma chemical company and someone who sells vacation real estate.

        Looking at his blog (http://www.rajfernando.com/ pet chairty balls, chopper.com soccer team) or who he follows on twitter (Slate, local pet charity, Matthew Yglesias, Ezra Klein, Arrinna Huffington) its clear he has no interest in cyber security. This is not a topic he engages in. He is interested in buying himself access to political power brokers.

The fact that there is no evidence of this corruption just proves how corrupt she really is! She hide the evidence too!

I just saw a former Secretary of State and ex-presidential couple file a tax return that showed a $10 million a year income, somehow generated with no business that provides any goods or services. That’s quite a GS-1000 job, there buddy. I see suspicious deaths surrounding an individual that are way out of the norm. Scandals and corruption erupt from these people well beyond even an ordinary politician.

        I suppose, by your reasoning, Al Capone was never the head of the mafia, never murdered anyone, never committed bribery, extortion or torture, because he was never charged or convicted. He was just an innocent businessman who ran afoul of the tax laws.

        If any of this were not true, then the Clintons would have a great case for libel. Yet, none. What are they afraid of…discovery?

      Press: “Trump said something rude to his maid.”

      Guy gets caught on video saying that he pays people to cause trouble at Trump rallies and Clinton knows it, and then Clinton gives speeches about how dangerous Trump’s rallies are.

      Press: “Trump’s tone is dangerous.”

      I’m sure there is pedantic hair-splitting and water-muddying to be done in response.

  11. The filtering mechanism for journalists begins in college.When I went through journalism school the professors and students were overwhelmingly liberal. As a non-liberal, I felt like I was in a very alien environment. I took a course in editorial writing where I experimented by taking a conservative position on half the assignments and a liberal position on the other half. Guess which half I got the good grades on? The professor told me near the end of the course that sometimes I was an extremely good writer but I was inconsistent. What a bright future if only I consistently parroted the liberal party line. I ended up working in accounting for the army after college because I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life around the same types of people I met while majoring in journalism in college.

  12. American presidents are generally ignoramuses that wreck havoc in the world and in their own country. They generally have filthy mouth and minds. Trump is fine.

    • Why are you changing your part of your tune now? I thought life in America for you is good, regardless of politicians.

      • Pay attention:

        1. America is good, but has been led in the wrong direction for a very long time. We’ve been discussing this forever on the blog, where have you been?

        2. In national elections I vote for what’s best for the country as a whole, not what’s best for me personally.

        Now back to your non-siquitur question. The discussion is about Trump and elections, not about anybody’s personal welfare. Are you getting my drift?

      • Then America is no good.

        What good is America, when other nations have surpassed it in quality of life measures? In a post scarcity world, Americans still live as if they are trying to resurrect the 1950s — by bringing back jobs so we can keep up with the Joneses — America’s Golden Age of Frivolous Consumption.

        And how is Trump good for America? He promises to bring back more jobs — see above. And by bringing back more jobs, this signifies more affirmative action for NAMs, and as a result, more frivilous spending by them, and the vicious cycle repeats. blacks have very low future time orientation, which is why they have degenerated over the last 40 years or so, because they are more pleasure induced.

  13. Bias isn’t strong enough a word. Prejudice or True Believer might be more appropriate terms. Have you ever noticed how when Trump supporters talk about him they always talk about issues, policies or what to expect him to do next? However the Hillary voters all talk about her in a far more and disturbingly personal way. They’re insulted that anyone isn’t voting for her. Some act like she’s they’re best friend, others act like she’s family and then are the fruit loops who act like she’s their Mother. This isn’t a political party its more like a cult. When you see Soviet Union Propaganda posters at the homes of these media loons, they shouldn’t even be allowed on media. Communism may not be against the law, but it ought to be. These people don’t just want to win this election, they want US all dead or arrested for opposing their agenda. The fact they aren’t arrested shows we don’t even have a government.

    • This is because liberals are emotion based. This has always been true but Trump brings this out more than anyone. They really believe he is the new Hitler. Many liberals have the incorrect perception that he is the most extreme conservative candidate ever to run in American history. Because they are emotion based, they can’t grasp that Trump is further to the left of Hillary on issues ranging from trade to going to war with Russia.

      • Trump = Hitler because

        a) He’d deport illegals
        b) He’d build a wall to stop illegals from entering the U.S.
        c) He’d temporarily ban Muslim immigrants
        d) His base is composed of angry, unenlightened, scary, narrow-minded white proles

        His other positions don’t matter because the above demonstrate that Trump is intolerant and unwelcoming and therefore he’s just like Hitler.

      • It’s quite fascinating to know that in NYC, Hispanics are more likely to vote for Trump than any other group, perhaps with the exception of the folks out in Staten Island, who live on a daily staple of pasta n meatballs.

  14. Lion, you should do a post on the dark ops hitmen for Hillary who O’Keefe got on tape admitting to organizing political violence at Trump rallies, amongst other crimes and dirty tricks. One of them, Bob Creamer is married to a Dem Congresswoman and Creamer also visited the White House over 300 times and met with the POTUS himself 42 times. This is potentially bigger than Watergate. It goes right to the top.

  15. O/T but related — Donald Trump Jr. may want to run against de Blasio in the next NYC’s mayoral race:

    I would vote for him and come back to NYC, if he promises to price out all the NAMs out of NYC’s boroughs. This of course, would never happen.

  16. More and more burkas in Brooklyn around the Atlantic-4th Ave intersection and on 5th Ave in Bay Ridge. It’s not just a trend; it’s an accelerating trend. In between these two points, an intense Amerindian Pentacostal wave; in some cases, I believe, the pastors/ministers/mustachioed-Holy-Spirit-incarnations are Puerto Rican and therefore probably ready to lead troops into battle. Flash points will be the hill between 60th St and 65th on 5th Avenue and the intersection of 4th Ave and Prospect Avenue near 17th. Can the Amerindians learn Hoplite-tactics in time to hold Sunset Park and the South Slope against the Muslims?

    • Middle Eastern delights are welcome and eaten in Cobble Hill, SWPL Brooklyn, with much jubilee, but not in Prole Brooklyn. Religion is the issue I tell ya.

      Arab Christians are baking baklava and making falafel sandwiches, all to the delight of SWPLs. Prole Brooklyn is where Arab Muslims call home. I guess proles have the privilege to live with undesirables and SWPLs don’t.
