92% of Republicans, 79% Independents Say MSM Is Fake News


A new poll shows that 92 percent of Republicans and 79 percent of Independents say the media is deliberately reporting fake or misleading news. More than half the Democrats agree that it’s fake news. That could be because the MSM is fake news.

It indicates the media is influenced by partisan politics. That’s true. Truth in reporting is no longer. They’re all activists.

This isn’t an outlier. Other studies from Gallup and Pew Research Center have shown the same thing.

A total of 70 percent of Americans say that “traditional major news sources report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading.”

It is seen as intentional:

  • More than two-thirds (65%) say fake news is usually reported because “people have an agenda.”
  • Roughly one-third (30%) believe such information is shared due to laziness or “poor fact-checking.”
  • Hardly anyone (3%) thinks that fake news makes headlines by accident.

Americans believe they can spot the fake news. We’re sure they can.

Democrats are more likely to check veracity according to this poll. If they rely on the fact-checkers, they’re still getting fake news. They are all left-wing.

We’re on to you!

We may soon see Fox being Fake News next.

Amid growing backlash against inflammatory statements by Fox News commentators, network CEO Suzanne Scott summoned top show producers to a meeting last week and delivered a clear message: They need to be in control of their hosts and panelists.

Scott told the producers that they would be held accountable for anything said on their air, and that it was their job to head off any inappropriate remarks, according to two people with knowledge of the meeting. Appearing via video conference from Washington, D.C., to the group in New York, which also included programming executives, Scott read from a prepared script, explaining that she wanted to make sure she communicated her message precisely.

“She said, ‘You are responsible for protecting the talent, protecting the brand,’” one of the people aware of the meeting said. “She said, ‘You are responsible as the producers. You have to protect the talent and the brand.’”
