Even Nixon got more respect.
But then, back then, the quality of the media was much higher than what pretends to be journalism today.

Most of the well know folk on TV today would be making coffee in 1972.

What self-respecting, objective, news source would find much to like about him?
The man is a despicable pig.

If I felt obliged to vote, I would vote "no".
He's attacked from all angles, apart from Faux News.
Deservedly so.

Has any POTUS and their family been attacked by the media more than President Trump?Or vice versa? :D

Family members working for him are fair game.

That isn't the point of the poll. Fair game? I asked if the media has been more biased EVER against POTUS and their family. Your response is because a few work in the Admin they are fair game.

Never mind.

The media is about ratings - and obtaining them justly.
Of course, there is a slant and bias in presentation.
Any fool can see that. Whether it's Fox News, or CNN.
Neither tells many lies - they just choose what to tell you.

I voted yes because Lincoln took a lot of abuse, but the times were so fundamentally different that it's hard to compare.

I give you credit for coming up with that, yet I think percentage of the population wise more people hate Trump than hated Lincoln as I believe the South was much less populated than than the North. Also the depths of what Trump is abused on is off the charts. I doubt there were journalists ripping on Lincoln's choices for what he ate.

Most presidents don't make their daughter and son-in-law senior advisors who cant pass their security clearance.

Hence the questioning of the nepotism involved.

and if everyone is honest Jared has been not the greatest advisor of all time.

They were lynching Lincoln in effigy and he had to sneak in to washington to be inaugurated. However they really didnt touch his family (mainly becuase they didnt take part in his decisions as president)

I appreciate the honesty there rastajenk. The whole purpose of this poll is whether any POTUS has had the absolute bashing that President Trump has being given by the media.

That is the whole point here - no one, either party, should be "picked on." The FF did not envision the all important Free Press to be political hacks, as many are today. The idea was that we, the people, needed to have information readily available to us in order to remain free from tyranny.
What we have theses days is 2nd graders having fit on air.

Here's a clue - if you are watching TV and there are more than one person reporting, you are not watching news. That goes for FOX as well. This panel crap is insulting to my intelligence. I need to have facts, nothing more - NEWS.

How man REAL news stories are getting no coverage while a bunch of biases s-hole panelists spout venon from both side of the aisle?

Freedom of the Press has become a joke. What we need is Freedom FROM the Press.

Check out One America News Network (OANN). It's an excellent 'conservative' news station that reports on a lot of stuff going on around the world that you don't hear about on many of the other major news networks and usually with just one anchor reporting. Very few commercials; lots of American history presented on most of the breaks.

For opinions, there is 'Tipping Point' with Liz Wheeler and 'The Daily Ledger' with Graham Ledger.
