Poll Confirms 77% Think ‘Traditional’ Media is FAKE NEWS

Trump Tweets “Fake News Networks” have a “sick and biased AGENDA.”

Steve Watson –  A new Monmouth University poll finds that over three quarters of Americans believe that the old media, that being the likes of CNN and The New York Times, regularly report ‘fake news’.

The survey asked respondents “Do you think some traditional major news sources like TV and newspapers ever report fake news stories, or not?”

A majority of 77 percent replied in the affirmative, an increase of 14 percent on last year.

Further breaking down the figures, 31 percent said the believe it happens regularly, while 46 percent said they think it happens occasionally.

Less than a quarter, just 21 percent, said they do not believe the legacy media reports fake news, a drop from 32 percent on last year’s findings.

The survey also probed further, asking “Do you think these sources report these stories on purpose in order to push an agenda or do they tend to report them more by accident or because of poor fact checking?”

Most respondents, 42 percent, said they believe it is to “push an agenda,” while 26 percent went with “poor fact checking,” and only seven percent answered “both equally.”

In addition, the survey found that 83 percent believe special interest groups are intentionally trying to implant false information into the news cycle. A further 87 percent said that they believe those interest groups have tentacles in social media sites and YouTube.

It isn’t just Conservatives who are expressing these views. Even a majority of Democrats believe the legacy media is putting out fake news. A majority of 61 percent of Democrats are in agreement, an increase from 43 percent a year ago. A whopping 89 percent of Republicans answered in the affirmative, while 82 percent of independents agreed old media is fake news.

“These findings are troubling, no matter how you define ‘fake news.’ Confidence in an independent fourth estate is a cornerstone of a healthy democracy. Ours appears to be headed for the intensive care unit,” Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement.

The findings come in the midst of a back and forth between ‘traditional media’ and broadcasting giant Sinclair, which recently had local news anchors warn about the spread of fake news in the media.

President Trump again waded in on the matter Tuesday, saying that the “Fake News Networks” have a “sick and biased AGENDA.”

Trump previously defended Sinclair earlier in the week:


If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!

The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.

The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!

Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
