News media: biased, uncaring, inaccurate

Pew Research polling is generally regarded as leaning somewhat to the left, but their new poll on news media echoes mainstream conservative opinion. From

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”.

My only comment is: “What sort of ignorant dunderhead thinks the media is accurate, unbiased, and stands up for America?” Apparently there are a sizable minority of them out there. Chalk one up for the teachers’ unions . . . their 30-year project to Dumb Down America is showing results . . .
