Media repeat ‘constitutional crisis’ 386 times in four days

Wednesday's Example of Media Bias   —   Posted on May 15, 2019

MRC analysts looked at all coverage on broadcast ABC, CBS, NBC and cable CNN and MSNBC networks from May 8 to 12, finding 386 utterances of the term “constitutional crisis” by hosts, analysts, or guest journalists. This count did not include cases in which the term was used by political partisans, such as members of Congress, former administration officials, or Democratic and Republican strategists.

Watch the video below for clips of the media talking about the supposed “constitutional crisis”:



CNN and MSNBC’s regular reporting has included no mention of the critics who disagree that such a crisis exists.
