74 PERCENT SAY PRESS BIASED TOWARD POWERFUL

The Pew Research Report said that “Nearly three-quarters (74%) now say news organizations are influenced by powerful people and organizations…” What a surprise!

 

Duh!

 

Why isn’t it 98 percent? Who are the stupid people who don’t have that view?

 

Here’s a link to the full report covering opinions 1985-2009: http://pewresearch.org/pubs/1341/press-accuracy-rating-hits-two-decade-low

 

The level of distrust of the press has risen from 53 percent in 1985.

 

It doesn’t mean, however, that the distrust of the news media mirrors my opinion or yours. In fact, Republicans are more critical than Democrats.

 

That’s because the myth of the “liberal media” is believed even by the media, revealing amazing ignorance among media people.

 

What WE need are more Kevin O’Briens to get that 74 percent up.
