Why is news coverage so unfavorable to President Trump?

A new Harvard study suggests that news coverage of President Trump isn't particularly favorable. But what can we conclude from these findings?

The study concludes that only 20 percent of the news coverage of the president is positive. Supporters of the president are saying, that's indicative of a biased news media out to get him.

But some opponents are saying it's reflective of the job he's doing. If 80 percent of the news coverage is negative, they argue, then that's an indication that Trump, in the main, is not doing a very good job.

Presumably both sides can use the same study to bolster their own arguments. Which takes us where?
