Pew: US Media Bias Ranks Worst In The World

Surprise

Quote:Americans on both sides of the political aisle believe the media does a poor job covering political issues fairly, according to a blockbuster new survey of media consumption in 38 nations.

What’s more, the Pew Research Center’s study found that supporters of President Trump believe the media is doing a worse job covering politics than the supporters of any of the other international political leaders in countries surveyed.

“Large gaps in ratings of the media emerge between governing party supporters and non-supporters. On the question of whether their news media cover political issues fairly, for example, partisan differences appear in 20 of the 38 countries surveyed. In five countries, the gap is at least 20 percentage points, with the largest by far in the U.S. at 34 percentage points,” said Pew.

It may, but this isn't the story or study to suggest that. What it does suggest is that the population doesn't trust it for various reasons.

But, I'm not sure Americans want fair media in the first place, we want favorable media. We also want it to be enjoyable, both for the headlines and for the reactions.

There are good people/organizations in American news, but they tend to end up staying small and see their job prospects getting smaller and smaller because the public doesn't want to hear or read what they have to say.

We have very few reporters anymore. They have been replaced by activists with cameras and microphones.

It's gotten to where I can't listen to CNN or Fox anymore. The junk that comes out of both networks is completely ridiculous. I've pretty much switched to watching the BBC World News Channel full time. At least I can't detect their bias because I know nothing about UK politics.

Americans don’t want to be informed. They want their biases confirmed.

Honestly, I don't really care if a news organization is slanted one way or the other. Where I have heartburn is that they don't make it known up-front and pretend as though they are neutral. Go ahead and cater to an audience, just knock off the false advertising.

I guess it's why Hannity or Maddow don't bother me much as they really aren't pretending to be "reporters of the news".

How about a heart warming story on a paramedic bringing a church shooting victim home.....

An update on Hilary Clinton and Fusion GPS

Fix News has been our downfall.

Fox News has been disastrous for our country.

Bring back the fairness doctrine.
