I'm sure this poll from Rasmussen is no surprise to anyone (except to the "mainstream" media themselves).
Rasmussen found that
55% believe media bias is more of a problem than big campaign contributions. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree and think that campaign cash is a bigger problem.
When presented with the proposition of banning campaign commercials (which is the kind of thing liberals and incumbents love to tout)
Sixty-six percent (66%) disagree and think that, despite the annoyance factor, it’s better to put up with an election-year barrage of advertising rather than rely on the news media.
So people would rather watch obviously biased campaign commercials and make up their own minds, than watch disguised bias in news coverage that attempts to subliminally sway their opinion toward that of the "mainstream" reporter.
No wonder "mainstream" newspaper readership is tanking, and they call the "mainstream" media the "dinosaur media."
In this day and age of alternatives, most people would rather think for themselves than subject themselves to a dose of disguised propaganda.
There's something encouraging in that.
