I don’t think we really needed a research study to prove that America’s mainstream media is the most biased and dishonest media of any country on the planet, but Pew Research gave us one, anyway.
The media in some very corrupt countries ranked more unbiased (honest) in its reporting than the US media.
Venezuela’s media is ranked far more unbiased and honest than the US media. Mexico’s media is ranked far more unbiased and honest than the US media.
In the chart, below, please note that the US media bias is very slanted toward anti-Trump/GOP bias. Only 21% surveyed believe President Trump and the Republican party are being reported on fairly and impartially by the US mainstream media. Even though that figure is the lowest of all countries surveyed, I believe the real number is much lower. I would calculate that at least 90% of mainstream media reporting is decidedly anti-Trump/GOP.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
I am sure the bias (dishonesty) in the US mainstream media was reversed during the Barack Hussein administration. I recall vividly the constant fawning and swooning of the talking heads.
What’s more, the Pew Research Center’s study found that supporters of President Trump believe the media is doing a worse job covering politics than the supporters of any of the other international political leaders in countries surveyed, reports the Washington Examiner.
“Large gaps in ratings of the media emerge between governing party supporters and non-supporters. On the question of whether their news media cover political issues fairly, for example, partisan differences appear in 20 of the 38 countries surveyed. In five countries, the gap is at least 20 percentage points, with the largest by far in the U.S. at 34 percentage points,” said Pew.
The survey found that just 21 percent of Americans supportive of Trump and Republicans believe the media is fair. Some 55 percent of those who don’t back Trump also believe the media is fairly covering politics in the U.S.
In every other case, those numbers are flipped, said Pew.
“The U.S. is also one of only a few countries where governing party supporters are less satisfied with their news media than are non-supporters. In most countries, people who support the political party currently in power are more satisfied with the performance of their news media than those who do not support the governing party,” said the study.
