Is Negative Coverage of Trump Helping Him?

The media’s negative coverage of President Trump is actually helping the White House, Howard Kurtz argues in his new book, Media Madness: Donald Trump, the Press, and the War over the Truth.

The book will not be formally released until next week, but CNN reviewed the sections that were briefly available on Google Books before they were taken down on Tuesday afternoon.

Kurtz writes that the press is “falling into the president’s trap” as Trump stakes his presidency on “destroying the credibility of the news media” and that the media have become “their own worst enemies.”
