lol... when the Mainstream Media reports at about a 90% rate against Trump, this story is kind of funny.
Can you support that figure factoring out the times he was just plain wrong or lying through his teeth?

They didn't suddenly change because Trump became president.
They suddenly grew exponentially since he became president and started enforcing corporate mandated pro-Republican President editorials being broadcast by all stations.

Those mentioned in the article have been around for a long time, longer than Trump's involvement in politics and have always.been conservative.

The rise of the pro Trump media machine. LOL!!
Dig through this. Look at the numbers acquired recently and the dates of the references to support of conservative causes. Not bullshit.

Yes they are.

And what do they want?

To make money.

If they thought that televising watching paint dry, or grass grow, would get better ratings, that's what they'd televise.

Right now they think Trump Hate will get the biggest ratings, so that's what they go with...

Really?? Remember when Sinclar mandated that their anchors read a pre-made statement on air about "fake news"

That is unprecedented and for sure violates all journalism ethics.

Hell Fox News should just be renamed "The Dear Leader Network".

NYT, WP, LA Times, Boston Globe - that is what professional journalism looks like

Jesus - this reeks of Authoritarianism

Attention viewers at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: Televisions will now be tuned to Fox News.

CBS News has confirmed an email was sent to researchers at the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research responding to apparent efforts to change the channel on internal television screens. The email from "[White Oak] Digital Display" sent on Wednesday, May 3, was sent to inform the researchers of the "reason for the change from CNN to Fox." White Oak is the name of the FDA's campus.

The email goes on to inform employees that the decision came from the Trump administration.

"The reason for the change is that a decision from the current administration administrative officials has requested that all monitors, under our control, on the White Oak Campus, display FOX news," the email reads.
