The Media is Obsessed with Trump and Russia and the Hard Data is Nuts

Now this really is some serious obsession.
Russia, Russia, Russia is a fixation for all the networks, with a new study by the Media Research Center showing 55 percent of Trump coverage on nightly broadcasts was related to the Russia investigation.
That adds up to 353 minutes of airtime since May 17, compared to 47 minutes on Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate pact, 29 minutes on the fight against terrorism and 17 minutes on the efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare, according to the Daily Caller’s summary of the study. It said tax reform got a mere 47 seconds of coverage.
Tax reform got 47 seconds?! Even though it will probably help nearly every American in some way or another. I would also be willing to bet the story was "How will Trump's Russia Collusion Hurt Tax Reform" or something similar probably by CNBC. If 353 minutes of airtime on a non-story doesn't convince you that the Media is an enemy of Trump nothing will.
