    All Trump! All the Time!



    This article is several months old but I doubt there's been much, if any, decline. For the record, I do not accept the idea that there is 'no such thing as bad press' although I grant it has to be really bad to have the negative effect we presume it should have.

    But this is INSANE. I knew I was seeing a lot of Trump's name everywhere - it just hadn't occurred to me how disproportionate it is.

    Source: Real Clear Politics

    While Obama typically hovered around 3 percent to 5 percent airtime over most of his presidency, Trump’s steady state appears to be around 13 percent-17 percent. In total from June 2009 to January 20, 2017, Obama averaged around 4.9 percent of the combined daily airtime of CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. From June 16, 2015 to present, Trump has averaged 15 percent, three times as much.

    From the same article:

    The timeline below shows the total percentage of airtime (as measured in 15-second intervals) of the combined CNN, MSNBC and Fox News daily coverage from June 2009 (the starting point of the data) to present that mentioned “Trump” or “Obama” (using data from the GDELT Project’s processing of the Internet Archive’s Television News Archive).

    Supply and demand, I'd say.

    It's campaign time, and Trump is back into troll mode. So it'll go back to 30% at least.
    Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

    Reminds me of an old comedy skit. "The president's on! He's on every channel! We're gonna miss Flipper!"
