Trump Year One: The Media


There has been voluminous reporting on President Trump’s misstatements and missteps — but the past few weeks I’ve been looking into what I think is one of the biggest stories of his first year as president: The Media. There’s been a cascade of mistaken and false reporting from his first day in office. That’s when Time magazine and others incorrectly claimed Trump had removed the bust statue of Martin Luther King from the Oval Office. That was just the beginning… the list is lengthy–and the mistakes always fell against Trump leading to the impression that bias is a factor in the media’s mistakes. That’s our cover story on Sunday’s Full Measure.

President Donald J. Trump

Four terror attacks in London in 2017 rocked the sensibilities of residents and prompted a push to tighten laws to go after Islamic extremists and their sympathizers. Scott Thuman reports from the UK on the proposal for a new law that would make it illegal to repeatedly view terrorist propaganda online.

And we’ll make a trip to South Korea where students spend countless hours after school in education academies known as “Hagwons.” The “cram culture” is so stressful that it’s blamed for the rise in suicide among South Korean youth. I’ll report from Seoul. Check us out! We won’t waste your time rehashing the same news you’ve already heard all week. Full Measure!

Watch Sundays on TV or live online at 9:30a ET. Replays anytime online.

    Hey Sharyl, I’m curious to see if the DOJ files any charges against just one of the many media outlets knowingly printing LIES against the President. I maybe wrong, but seems to me I remember many moons ago reporters being brought to court and asked to reveal their sources. I believe in Freedom of The Press, but this is abuse of that Right.

      I loved the irony of Mr. Cesno comments when he states there is no excuse to report inaccurately and then offers an excuse for inaccurate reporting. I am glad you called him out on that. Thank you for your objective program

      I absolutely agree with Jeffery Tartt! Seems treasonous to me to spread propaganda from corrupt government officials to turn the public against a sitting president!
      On another note, I was targeted by a corrupt law enforcement agency. The more I spoke out, the more I was punished. I thank you Sharyl for warning Americans of the dangers we face against a government with far to much reach into our lives. Overnight and unjustly they can take everything from you and their isn’t a dam thing you can do about it! P.T.S.D rules my life! Americans haven’t a clue of the snakes that have borrowed into our government and hold incredible amounts of power over us! Thank you Sharyl

    I was disappointed in this report. You basically gave Trump a pass on telling the truth. A president has a duty to provide accurate information, something he seems incapable of doing. He lost me when he said he lost the popular vote because of people voting illegally. Having worked for the registrars in numerous elections it is impossible for 3 million people to have voted illegally. You can do better than this.
