NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on the final edition of Fox News’s The Factor, Friday, to slam journalists as being in a “festival of hate” during Donald Trump’s first few months. Talking to guest host Greg Gutfeld, he quipped of first 100 days: “It’s an artificial measuring stick and as usual we can expect the media to take that stick and beat Trump over the head with it.”

He added, “This is one of those things where the media is just in a complete festival of hate. And if you go back eight years what you’re going to find is the kind of coverage they were giving Obama is ‘They got a puppy!’”

For more on Trump’s first 80 days, see a new Media Research Center study. It found that 89 percent of the media coverage has been negative so far.
