Trump: I hope Supreme Court ends Obamacare

With his reelection looming, the president has increasingly promised that he has or will have a sweeping, ideal health-care proposal that will be produced imminently or in two weeks or after some other benchmark is met.


“It’s going to be ready, it’s all ready. It’ll be here in two weeks,” she (Lesley Stahl) said, paraphrasing various Trump pledges. “It’s going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. And, of course, we haven’t seen it. So why didn’t you develop a health plan?”

“It is developed. It’s fully developed,” Trump replied. “It’s going to be announced very soon.”

“When?” Stahl pressed. “You say that over and over.”

There is always bias. Except for some poignant excerpts (on YT), I generally don't watch news. I'd rather read. More efficient, less aggravating.

I was referring mostly to TV news...and i am sure so was trump.
 
Nah, Trump refers to all media (both in print and TV) with the exception of his sycophants.

As does Gallup (sans sycophants):
Americans remain largely mistrustful of the mass media as 41% currently have "a great deal" or "fair amount" of trust in newspapers, television and radio to report the news "fully, accurately and fairly."


P.S.: Your original assertion was that "the media has mishandled the pandemic". There's no way of knowing you're referring to TV news only.
 
wasnt referring to tv only. print media also has also mishandled the pandemic...but with print, its easier to filter what you expose yourself to.

I'm gonna go out on a ledge and say trump doesnt read much

Likely, though it has been reported he gets a selection of positive news articles each morning.

Regardless, he's still very much aware when the "Amazon Washington Post" or the "Failing New York Times" write something he doesn't like. See his tweets on what he refers to as the collective "LameStream Media" which includes both.

There's a remote control...

Law and order...
In posting the interview, Trump and the White House violated an agreement with CBS News that the White House was taping the interview “for archival purposes only,” said a network source with knowledge of the interview.

There is an explanation for the most recent drop in confidence. And independents have a mini-surge while clinging closely to the "fake news screamers."
 
Reason for the repub drop being mostly politics? Yes i agree.

The media is completely biased. I remember when the news was reported as a matter of facts and not slanted toward a particular political view....Ah the good old days!
