Has coverage of Maryland rape case been fair and balanced?

This Week On #MediaBuzz

SEAN SPICER said NBC should be "ashamed" of Rachel Maddow's handling of President Trump's leaked tax return, hit the media's alleged "false narrative" in saying there's no evidence on Trump's unproven wiretap claim but not on collusion with Russia, and said some journalists want Trump to fail for ideological reasons. MOLLIE HEMINGWAY said some of the criticism of Maddow is "overblown" because it was a legitimate story. SHARYL ATTKISSON said it is questionable for Trump and his team to rely on media reports when they constantly criticize the media. MARGARET CARLSON said Trump was "used to dishing stuff" to the New York tabloids and now behaves in a similar fashion. BILL BENNETT, who worked for Ronald Reagan, said the coverage of Trump is "the worst I've ever seen" because it's so personal. And IJR founder ALEX SKATELL said some criticism of Rex Tillerson taking only Erin McPike on his trip to Asia was warranted but "we did everything we could to be transparent."

Ask Howie

I wanted to send an email about your segment with Kellyanne. She should have her own news show so we can learn the POSITIVE news about President Trump! She was 100% on point about the news media about cherry-picking which stories they spin and "report." I know most of the news I read or hear is probably untrue or twisted into some negative story.
