No Estimate Yet on the Dollar Value of the Trump-Hating Columns?

October 19, 2017 --

LPR recalls that media sources claimed that media coverage of the presidential campaign of Donal J. Trump was estimated to be worth…was it two billion dollars. Thus far, LPR is not aware of any dollar value put on the tsunami of anti-Trump columns, editorials, articles, in the media. Certainly this anti-Trump media tsunami makes it clear that there is no diversity of political thought at outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the television news organizations (with the possible exception of Fox).

The monolithic media mindset of Trump-hate certainly belies claims that the president is a threat to the First Amendment.

Indeed, it is the media’s Iron Curtain barring pro_Trump articles, letters, and columns that should trouble civil libertarians.
