A study from Pew Research Center out last week finds that a vast majority of Republicans (73%) feels that news organizations don’t understand them. This stands in stark contrast to the percentage of Democrats (40%) who say they feel the same way.

Republicans vary little across various demographics in saying they are misunderstood by the media. Republicans with a college degree, for example, are just as likely, if not slightly more likely, to say they're misunderstood than those with a high school education or less. Similar patterns follow gender and age lines.

While this could be attributed to many factors, one that's worth highlighting is the amount of coverage and credence given to stories and headlines that promote the overall narrative of President Trump's coming "doomsday."

  • In reality, as the Washington Post's Erik Wemple writes in an opinion piece, the narrative that the "walls are closing in" on Trump has really become a cliche of the Trump presidency, "mouthed by Democratic leaders, pundits and anchors agog at how this fellow can make it through crisis after crisis."

Bob Woodward: "I was not going to hide" my opinion on Trump

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
