The percentages for “Overall Tone of Media Coverage” included ALL MEDIA.

However, 50% of Americans still get their news primarily from the broadcast media, which is free for anyone whose t.v. can receive the signal without internet, cable, or satellite service.

  • During 2015 and 2016, only one-tenth of all evening news airtime was devoted to Obama.
