Poll Backs Up POTUS' Claim of Media's Overt Divisiveness

Linkedin Share

There has been a war raging between the President of the United States and the mainstream media, with the fight turning truly ugly over the course of the last few weeks.

After a nasty, bitter fight in the East Room of the White House, (that resulted in Jim Acosta of CNN having his press credential indefinitely revoked), there has been a nonstop avalanche of animosity rifling its way through the mainstream media.  They have seized this opportunity to go after the President in earnest, with even Trump-friendly Fox News jumping into the fray and throwing their support behind business and ideological rival CNN.

For his part, the President has remained steadfast in his belief that the media’s inherent “entertainment” focus is leading the division that we face in America today.

Now, a new poll has backed up this claim. 

More than seven in ten Americans think the media are “dividing Americans” and spread “hate and misunderstanding,” according to a new poll.

In a poll conducted November 7-8, Zogby Analytics asked 1,024 likely voters “Do you agree or disagree: The mainstream media has played a major role in dividing Americans along racial, gender and political lines. This has led to a spread of hate and misunderstanding among some people.”

Some 72% said they “strongly agree” or “somewhat agree.” Another 29% said they “somewhat disagree” or “strongly disagree.”

As we have explained before, any television news source’s presentation should be taken with a grain of salt.  These are entertainment channels, who, just like MTV and Lifetime, have to sell advertisements in order to keep the lights on and pay the exorbitant salaries of their talking heads.  As such, they must create conflict to garner viewership, which comes in the form of the undeniable distortion of the truth.

CNN is to “news” what the WWE is to “wrestling”.  Remember that always , and you’ll be on the path to political enlightenment.
