Americans are fed up and tired of being insulted by condescending elites. It is no surprise trust in the mainstream media is at all-time lows with less than 30 percent of people buying what reporters are selling as “news.”
We’re on to them; the numbers do not lie, and the recent presidential election results should reinforce how the liberal media’s (indirect campaign) bias against Donald Trump and support for Hillary Clinton backfired.
A new Media Research Center (MRC) poll shows a high number of voters rejected Democratic media bias and that by a 3-to-1 margin, the public saw media bias favoring Clinton.
Here are a few of the findings:
- 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
- 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
- Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
Media Research Center (MRC)’s Brent Bozell said:
In 30 years, I’ve never seen anything like this. The media are in full panic mode because the American people rejected their leftist agenda — and them… There is an institutional bias at major media networks that must be repaired and I am highly skeptical that news executives are interested or capable of undertaking this responsibility.
…Most of us already know the answers to the following questions, but they still must be asked:
Do the elite media monitor the power of the United States government regardless of whether there is a Republican or Democrat in the White House?
Do they report on subjects such as abortion, sanctuary cities, same-sex marriage, Muslim immigration, the national debt, Planned Parenthood funding, or welfare with no bias?
When it comes to corruption and investigations, do they treat conservatives differently than they do liberals?
Do you think some in the major media simply omit stories if the facts don’t support their narrative?
And finally, how do the media handle political campaigns and elections?
…As if we needed more evidence, journalists overwhelmingly donate money to Democrats over Republicans and in terms of dollars given, it was a 15-to1 ratio. What about employees of big media companies? Their campaign donation ratio is 100-to-1 favoring Democrats. Surprised?
FLASHBACK: Eight years ago, I wrote extensively on the presidential campaign cycle and tried raising more awareness so people would do their own research in the future and see the glaring hypocrisy and double-standards of the Left. Unfortunately, people tend to believe half-truths or lies, if they are repeated often enough.
Forgotten history? Post-election polls from 2008:
- Rasmussen: By 10-to-1 Margin, Public Says Reporters ‘Tried to Hurt Palin’
- By Nearly 8-to-1, Voters Say Journalists Wanted Obama to Win
- By 5-to-1 Public Thinks Most Journalists Tried to Elect Obama
As Christians, though we know the Bible is the ultimate truth, we should be no less concerned about truth in our country, culture, and media. Sadly, the media doesn’t even try hiding their bias anymore. The fact that the Christian worldview is not popular in today’s society shouldn’t be surprising to us, but we are American citizens and we deserve to know the facts and the truth about government and issues that affect us.
Another glaring issue is the fact many sycophants in major news organizations hang out with those they should be holding accountable. We’ve seen this occur in the cozy relationship elite liberal reporters have enjoyed with the Obama administration.
…The insurmountable problems with this level of bias however, go even beyond basic elitism and disdain for those who hold opposing views. They stem from an intolerant, anti-Christian worldview cultivated through years of godless indoctrination in an education system and culture that has become hostile toward conservatives and people of faith.
