Media disapproval

How about that news media. What happened to media approval numbers? As much as they are critiquing Trump’s approval numbers, look at theirs.

But one message I took the liberty of interpreting was, those Democrats are even dumber than we thought.

To Gallup | August 25, 2017

First, the number,

Story Highlights

  • 14% of Republicans believe news media get the facts straight
  • 62% of Democrats agree
  • College-educated are most likely to find news media credible

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Just over a third of Americans (37%) in 2017 say news organizations generally get the facts straight, unchanged from the last time Gallup asked this question in 2003. But despite the apparent stability in U.S. adults’ perceptions of news media accuracy, major partisan shifts in beliefs on this topic have emerged over the past 14 years. Republicans’ trust in the media’s accuracy has fallen considerably, while Democrats’

The most recent findings come from two Gallup polls, conducted in March and July of this year and consisting of interviews with 1,810 adult Americans.

Compare that to 1998 when ” over half of both Republicans (52%) and Democrats (53%) believed news organizations generally got the facts straight.” And so college-educated are more likely to trust the news media.  Another whopper surprise. Democrats and college-educated, what’s that say for media cred? Pardon me, I smell swamp gas oozing.

Will pollsters also show me where we are supposed to believe media, after their reports on last election, while our approval for congress is in the basement? Nah, probably not.

After the polls and media coverage last year, it’s surprising anyone believes either. Right, Dems want to believe media, and the polls. That must be it. Just look at everything else they want to believe in. How are these polls stable from 2003 to now?

Doesn’t add up, except that there is even more overwhelming evidence of liberal media bias now, and how far they’ll go. They even admit taking a pass on criticizing Obama. All the more reasons for Dems to want to believe them. Democrats wanted to believe in everything Obama said too. So I think this is more about faith.

    Flock them. The media has proved themselves to be nothing more than the propaganda wing of the left… therefore irrelevant.

    The talking heads, Hollywood, even the NFL assholes and minor celebs are irrelevant in a world where people are desperate for adults to be in charge. People want a friggin job. People want to be safe. Nobody gives a shit what the media thinks. They are overpaid assholes that don’t live in the real world.
