Whoopi Goldberg makes misguided claim about Trump coverage

Repeating the oblivious narrative of the left, “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg stated on Tuesday that while he was a presidential candidate, Donald Trump enjoyed overwhelmingly positive media coverage.

Responding to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who was a guest on the show, after he complained that Trump received negative media coverage during the election, Goldberg said, “Ninety-eight percent of [media coverage] was positive.”

Gingrich even cited a Harvard study which clearly revealed that President Trump received 93 percent negative coverage from “an analysis of news reports in the print editions of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post, the main newscasts of CBS, CNN, Fox News, and NBC, and three European news outlets (The UK’s Financial Times and BBC, and Germany’s ARD),” according to the study.

Goldberg claimed that the President snagged tons of press coverage because networks liked the way he boosted their ratings. She said that “all” the coverage was “positive until people started asking questions.”

“It wasn’t all positive,” Gingrich replied. He noted that the media may have covered Trump more, but they certainly didn’t treat him better than other candidates.

“I know what I saw,” said Goldberg, doubling down on her comments.
