I guess the majority of people are not well conditioned to believe lies yet. They will have to boost the zombie food chemistry to achieve their goals of mind control. I think that the news agencies think they have most of us brainwashed, they are not very smart. Now we just have to figure a way to pass laws to make fake news creation illegal without interfering with the freedom of the press or our freedom of speech. We just need the press to tell the truth, not a spun truth to show something that is not real.

I agree, breitbart is partisan. Who isn't these days?

If you follow the link to the website of the actual polling service, it is not, IMO, a particularly biased poll. Seems legit, and also references a poll by another company that got a similar response.



These people cried over Drudge Report. No actual reporting, just a news aggregate.

All media outlets have a bias. It's just a matter of degree. Some, like Fox News, deliberately distort facts or use inflammatory adjectives to rouse its viewers. All use meaningless talking points to distract attention, and all use what might be the worst tactic at all — avoiding reporting something at all. What stays out of sight stays out of mind. Mainstream media is worthless for forming an objective, intelligent opinion and should not be taken too seriously yet it dumb you down. The internet is a much better source of truth, though there is an enormous amount of noise to filter. It's hard to maintain critical thinking skills, but necessary if we have a chance to evolve mankind.

The poll did not have a huge sample only 3,936 adults.
Research polls are not the end all be all. They can be indirectly swayed by the question wording, bad statistical analysis, human biased woven in to the polling question, or just error.
When I did a research paper in college I notices that a few of the questions I came up with leaned toward my hypothesis without me realizing. oops...

If anyone doubts the deep state/NWO bunch IMO look no further than the corruption of the FBI, DOJ, and the script directed news reports that fight tooth and nail against anything Trump tries to do as president.


I kept thinking much the same way, during the election.

That basically, by their actions, they were putting themselves in the limelight better than any conspiracy theorist could ever hope to do.

But alas, there are folks who still believe every headline on CNN, even when the text of the story directly contradicts it.

The fake news is in the title....Poll: 72% of Americans Believe Establishment Media Deliberately Report Fake News

To make the statement "72% of Americans " starts out the article as false. I'm an American and I didn't receive a request to complete a survey. There are over 400 million Americans and I doubt every American received an invite to complete their survey.

This goes for both sides of the fence. Don't say or imply all Americans when their survey base are their friends or political side of choice.

Do you understand how surveys work? Whilst I agree the results can be misleading, you really don't have to interview everyone to get a read on public opinion. Honestly. No, really.

I work in Advertising and i know that a large share of MSM stories are really placed advertisements, right down to a script and video clips being provided.

Their methodology is questionable, but it does suggest that the disinformation campaign is working. Americans no longer understand how to assimilate news.

Not exactly. Television news relies on "fluff pieces" provided by marketers to pad out their broadcasts. This has been a growing problem as media corporations trim the news department budgets. Local news stations often rely almost entirely on these prepackaged "infomercials." This is why I constantly urge everyone to rely on print journalism. Although newspapers and magazines publish fluff pieces, they do not present it as being important news.

Apparently this is true when it comes to the American brain dead’s choice for news. Only 10% of what they regurgitate is actually true. www.politifact.com...

As usual, thanks for posting a partisan laugh riot.

I understand how surveys work. I also understand they are not polling 72% of Americans. Basically, what I'm saying is, don't make a statement that 72% of 400 million people have given opinion when they have not.
