The media is only a little left

The study found that Trump received 839 minutes of coverage with a whopping 92.4 percent of them being negative, while only 269 total minutes of airtime were devoted to Biden and only 34 percent were considered negative.

This is one of those things that is clear in your mind (e.g., self-evident), and if you do not get it then you have no situational awareness and probably live in a liberal echo chamber.

NC,

Fox News thinks that if a reporter's nose isn't brown, then the coverage is negative. Accurate reporting of Trump's screw-ups is not evidence of a negative bias.

Here is the scoop on the Media Research Center - who did YOUR research.

Media Research Center Inc. (MRC) is a right-wing media "watchdog" group run by president and founder Brent Bozell. It is predominately funded by larger right-wing foundations (see below) with other comparatively minor sources of income from rental income and investments. In its 2006 annual report, the group's founder wrote that MRC "continued to regularly provide intellectual ammunition to conservative activists, arming them with the weapons to fight the leftist press."[1] Its 2011 annual report prominently features a picture of a bus full of members of "MRC's Action Team," who "descended on Madison, Wisconsin in April 2011 to show their support for Governor Scott Walker."[2] (For context, see the SourceWatch article on the Wisconsin Protests.)
