Majority see media as biased, inaccurate, uncaring

More than half of Americans say US news organizations are politically biased, inaccurate, and don't care about the people they report on, a poll published Thursday showed.

And poll respondents who use the Internet as their main source of news -- roughly one quarter of all Americans -- were even harsher with their criticism, the poll conducted by the Pew Research Center said.

More than two-thirds of the Internet users said they felt that news organizations don't care about the people they report on; 59 percent said their reporting was inaccurate; and 64 percent they were politically biased.

More than half -- 53 percent -- of Internet users also faulted the news organizations for "failing to stand up for America".

Among those who get their news from newspapers and television, criticism of the news organizations was up to 20 percentage points lower than among Internet news audiences, who tend to be younger and better educated than the public as a whole, according to Pew.

The poll indicates an across the board fall in the public's opinion on the news media since 1985, when a similar survey was conducted by Times Mirror, Pew Research said.

"Two decades ago, public attitudes about how news organizations do their job were less negative. Most people believed that news organizations stood up for America... a majority believed that news organizations got the facts straight," Pew said in a report.

The Washington-based Pew Research Center describes itself as a nonpartisan "fact tank" that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world.

It's true, but not likely in the way you interpret it.

I must say - taking my political beliefs out of it; there seems to be no integrity there anymore. We could probably get more news from ESPN than the theater that is TV news these days. I don't really like any of it, and the last two debates we saw a great example of how bad it really is now.

Rather than use Black Crowe's for a definition:

a secret agreement between two or more people to perform an unlawful act
a plot to carry out some harmful or illegal act (especially a political plot)
a group of conspirators banded together to achieve some harmful or illegal purpose

Actually, I think most would agree with the following.


The change from non-profit or necessary expense to for profit media has driven the downfall of news coverage...

1) TV News goes for the cheap sensationalism rather than the costly investigation
2) That costly investigation role has been replaced by partisan opposition researchers cozying up to media outlets
3) News media follows public opinion (ratings) more than it leads it (tough stories)

You can put your own partisan perspective to those attributes, but that's pretty much what's wrong with the media.

Neither do you. Since my response to Cochise's thread was cross-thread humor...or sarcasm.

Actually, it was more I just didn't get your post much at all, never mind missing any humor. So I took what I wanted of it since you and Cochise don't know what it means.

Really, how do you know? Did you ask for a definition or is it just that much easier to assume?

I didn't assume anything....I just know the definition because I bothered to look it up one time.
