There was not a single major topic where Trump’s coverage was more positive than negative”(News coverage). All of the U.S. news outlets coverage is at least 50% negative, including Fox News. Both NBC and CNN are 93% negative when it comes to President Trump. The data also shows that Obama's coverage was 41% negative, and Clinton's 60%.
