I am responding to the Jan. 29 letter entitled "Character matters." Brent Barnum blames Trump's low approval numbers on his bombastic approach to the American public. I would agree with Barnum that the president's approach does not always help him; however, there is a much larger issue for his low approval numbers.
To me the reason is obvious. The mainstream media is biased, and it will do anything it can to sway the opinions of the American people. Unfortunately, most Americans get their information from the easy-to-access mainstream media, mainly NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN. Their opinions are formed by what they see and hear.
There is a definite correlation between the amount of negative coverage Trump receives and his approval numbers. Evan the casual observer can see the media's liberal bias and its agenda to influence the American people.
