Majority think media is too critical of Trump
A majority of Americans believe news organizations are too critical of President Trump, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Sunday.Trump has a tendency to talk without a script. That sometimes lead him to say things in a way that the media pounces own and sends the fact checkers into a frenzy. Rather than attacking they should be asking for clarification. Many of the things the media challenges him on appear to be a difference of opinion more than an attempt to deceive.
Fifty-one percent of Americans said the media is too critical of Trump, while 41 percent think news organizations have been fair and objective.
The poll also found that Americans are becoming more optimistic about where the country is headed, with 40 percent saying it is headed in the right direction. In December, 33 percent felt that way, compared to 18 percent in July.
