This is no surprise. What is surprising is that there are any Republicans there at all. This explains why will do anything to make Trump look bad. Anything. They are not a group of neutral observers, but a rabidly partisan gaggle of sinister propagandists.
“Politico Poll of White House Press Corps Includes Grand Total of Three Republicans,” by David Rutz, Washington Free Beacon, April 29, 2017:
Only three Republicans are represented in Politico Magazine‘s poll of the White House press corps asking their thoughts about covering President Trump’s administration.
According to the fourth annual poll, 63 press corps members were surveyed, and only five percent of them were registered Republicans, the same percentage that listed “other.” Sixteen percent were Democrats, 37 percent were independents, and 37 percent were non-registered.
Last year, none of the 72 members of the White House press corps it surveyed were Republicans, effectively showing an uptick of three members of the GOP in the poll.
Since the election, the mainstream press has received significant criticism, both from within and outside its ranks, for being too insular and liberal as it covered the 2016 presidential campaign and failed to see Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton coming. The New York Times even posted a planning document about its desire for greater diversity in “outlook” in its newsroom.
The White House press respondents in 2017 said that on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being not at all disconnected from the rest of America and 10 being completely disconnected, they were a 6.
Forty-five percent said their coverage was biased against Trump, while two percent said they were biased in his favor, and 53 percent said they were not biased either way….
