Poll: Americans Note Liberal Media Bias

Unfortunately these last few months have demonstrated how far the national media will go to promote a liberal agenda.

Polls continue to show Americans’ trust in the media is at an all-time low. Instead of providing objective and fair coverage of the news, the media provide one-sided stories that further damage their credibility. A recent Suffolk University/USA Today poll found that by a nearly 10-to-1 ratio, Americans believe that the major newspapers and TV stations favor the Democratic candidate for president over the Republican candidate.

Americans of all political affiliations know that the national media strongly leans to the left. Unfortunately, it has leaned too far for too long and has fallen off of the credibility cliff.

We need to remind the media of their profound obligation to provide the American people with the facts, not tell them what to think.
