Poll: Americans Sick Of The ‘Political Media’


By Alex Weprin Comment

A new poll from Public Policy Polling and Daily Kos suggests that the American public continues to sour on the political media, including the politicized cable news channels. An astonishing 78% of respondents said they had an “unfavorable” view of the political media, compared to 10% that had a favorable view.

The split was roughly even among most demographics, including men and women, age and region. The only slight differences were in the Republican-Democrat or liberal-conservative split. Democrats and liberals were slightly–albeit only slightly–more likely have a favorable view of the media, though an clear majority still did not share that view.
