The Math of Media Bias 200 / 8,491,079

If you really want to under­stand how media Bias works you can’t do much bet­ter than this

Let’s start with this story at NBC news that has the headline:

Hun­dreds Protest Don­ald Trump’s Host­ing Gig on ‘Sat­ur­day Night Live’

It turns out how­ever at the num­ber of hun­dreds NBC is talk­ing is …two

An esti­mated 200 pro­test­ers, many of whom were rep­re­sent­ing Latino groups, marched seven New York City blocks from Trump Tower to NBC’s head­quar­ters, where they joined pro­test­ers who were already out­side of the build­ing hold­ing signs that said things like “#racis­mis­nt­funny” and “Dump Trump.”

200? cripes I’ve been to tea party events in Leomin­ster that drew bet­ter, and remem­ber 200 is an esti­mate.

Via Sun­dance at the con­ser­v­a­tive tree­house who does the math:

Protest orga­niz­ers had two weeks advance notice to coor­di­nate activ­ity. New York City is a cen­ter­piece of lib­er­al­ism and lib­eral pol­icy imple­men­ta­tion. An entire MSM con­struct would glee­fully assist the advance­ment and pro­mo­tion of the protest­ing group.

New York City has a pop­u­la­tion of 8.5 mil­lion peo­ple. Accord­ing to cen­sus fig­ures 27.5% of those res­i­dents are Latino. All of the ingre­di­ents needed for a anti-​Trump nar­ra­tive were in place…. and 200 pro­test­ers showed up.

That’s 200 pro­test­ers from a Latino pop­u­la­tion of 2,337,500, or .0085%

And that of course assume they were only draw­ing pro­test­ers from New York City.

Yet to NBC News that protest was worth 502 words. That works out to about 2.5 words per pro­tester. By con­trast look at this video from last years march for life

How many words per pro­tester do you think NBC gave them?

And of course that’s just the NBC arti­cle, think about how many news sto­ries both in print and on TV took place both about the protest and pro­mot­ing it for the last week. That’s got to be thou­sands of words and hun­dreds of min­utes per pro­tester from the MSM to sell you the story. “Don­ald Trump will draw His­pan­ics to vote against him in droves.”

The real story that an anti-​trump protest with a chance to be on TV drew 200 peo­ple in a city of 8,491,079 but a bet­ter ques­tion is this: If the media won’t tell you that story, what other sto­ries on elec­tion 2016 aren’t they telling you?

If you really want to understand how media Bias works you can’t do much better than this

Let’s start with this story at NBC news that has the headline:

Hundreds Protest Donald Trump’s Hosting Gig on ‘Saturday Night Live’

It turns out however at the number of hundreds NBC is talking is …two

An estimated 200 protesters, many of whom were representing Latino groups, marched seven New York City blocks from Trump Tower to NBC’s headquarters, where they joined protesters who were already outside of the building holding signs that said things like “#racismisntfunny” and “Dump Trump.”

200? cripes I’ve been to tea party events in Leominster that drew better, and remember 200 is an estimate.

Via Sundance at the conservative treehouse who does the math:

Protest organizers had two weeks advance notice to coordinate activity. New York City is a centerpiece of liberalism and liberal policy implementation. An entire MSM construct would gleefully assist the advancement and promotion of the protesting group.

New York City has a population of 8.5 million people. According to census figures 27.5% of those residents are Latino. All of the ingredients needed for a anti-Trump narrative were in place…. and 200 protesters showed up.

That’s 200 protesters from a Latino population of 2,337,500, or .0085%

And that of course assume they were only drawing protesters from New York City.

Yet to NBC News that protest was worth 502 words. That works out to about 2.5 words per protester. By contrast look at this video from last years march for life

How many words per protester do you think NBC gave them?

And of course that’s just the NBC article, think about how many news stories both in print and on TV took place both about the protest and promoting it for the last week. That’s got to be thousands of words and hundreds of minutes per protester from the MSM to sell you the story. “Donald Trump will draw Hispanics to vote against him in droves.”

The real story that an anti-trump protest with a chance to be on TV drew 200 people in a city of 8,491,079 but a better question is this: If the media won’t tell you that story, what other stories on election 2016 aren’t they telling you?
