Regular news consumers have long known that the corporate-owned ‘mainstream media’ is full of Left-wing Democrat party hacks posing as journalists.
Oh sure, there is Fox News, OANN, NewsMax, and a couple of other networks that offer conservative content as a bulwark against the lying Left-wing Washington media.
But they generally focus on getting out stories that the lamestream won’t bother with because it hurts their Democrat agenda.
All that regurgitation of Dem talking points is also hurting trust. in the media, as a new study from Gallup and the Knight Foundation indicates.
The New American has some more details:
In its biennial report on how Americans view the national media the Knight Foundation found that 'many Americans feel the media's critical role of informing and holding those in power accountable is compromised by increasing bias. As such, Americans have not only lost confidence in the ideal of an objective media, they believe news organizations actively support the [current] partisan political divide.'
An astonishing 86 percent of the 20,000 American citizens the group polled see either 'a great deal' or 'a fair amount' of political bias in the news coverage they receive. Further, the group found that citizens say that a lot of it is 'intentional', accusing some in the media of simply making up the facts necessary to promote a preordained agenda.
“Americans perceive inaccurate news to be intentional — either because the reporter is misrepresenting the facts (54%) or making them up entirely (28%),” the report says.
“Nearly 8 in 10 Americans (79%) say news organizations they distrust are trying to persuade people to adopt a certain viewpoint, while 12% say they are trying to report the news accurately and fairly but are unable to do so,” it adds.
So clearly, we as a nation don’t trust what we’re being told because what we’re being told, more often than not, isn’t accurate.
Take the wildly inflated coronavirus death toll as just one example: Do you recall the last time we counted a death from a heart attack, a stroke, or some other ailment as really have been caused by a virus? And if that’s the new standard now, then we should expect deaths from ‘the flu’ to skyrocket this year, as people with heart disease, diabetes, kidney failure, and other ailments — who also have influenza — pass away.
Right? Why hasn’t the mainstream media questioned this farcical nonsense? Easy; because more ‘coronavirus deaths’ is worse for President Trump, and that’s exactly what ‘the media’ wants.
Attorney General William Barr also blasted the media last week, calling them out for serial lies involving a number of issues that wind up stirring up the public and putting us all at each other’s throats.
'They're basically a collection of liars,' Barr said, according to Townhall. 'Most of the mainstream media. They're a collection of liars and they know exactly what they're doing.”
Yes, they do. But, according to this latest study, we’re onto them.
