I started to answer this last night...but hesitated because I also am mostly disapproving of Trump...
However I think yes, the news does purposely dis Trump...but in this case, might it be true that Trump himself eventually acknowledged that one major reason for the firing was Comey's handling of the Russian investigation?
However the article in which I read THAT was also negative of Trump...

I don't have a good alternative here; we as a nation do need to maneuver this difficult time as well as possible, and overall, the media is NOT helping. However, I do recall that during the primaries no matter what the media said about Trump his supporters would never believe it.
So one possibility; could the media bias backfire on them again? I can tell you that here in SW Washington, NOTHING can shake local loyalty to Donald Trump.
