MRC/YouGov Poll: 69% Think Media is Dishonest … 78% of Voters Say News Coverage of the Presidential Campaign was Bias
THE MEDIA HAS FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED TO BE BIAS, DISHONEST AND UNTRUSTWORTHY ...
One of the biggest losers of the 2016 presidential elections was the news media, from top to bottom. A recent MRC/YouGov poll showed that 69% of voters believe the media to be dishonest and untrustworthy, while another 78% stated that the new coverage of the presidential campaign was biased. Of those who believe the media was bias, nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%). Maybe one of the most telling and disastrous finding of this poll for the media was that 97% of voters said that they did not let the MSM affect or influence their vote. Can you say, the MSM is now irrelevant?
The Media Research Center (MRC) announces the findings of a new post-election poll on what actual voters thought about the media’s influence on the 2016 presidential race. The MRC/YouGov poll was conducted on November 9 and 10.
- 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
- 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
- Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
- 8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump.
- 97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.
This should be a wake up call for the liberal media, but it is most likely not. They still appear to be spewing their liberal bias agenda in their news as pointed out by Legal Insurrection. However, one thing is for certain, the American voters rejected their bias and was able to see through the lies.
Typical Bias MSM … CBS News under Fire for holding Clip of Trump Telling Supporters Not to Attack Minorities & “To Stop It!”
LIBERAL MSM STILL AT THEIR TYPICAL, BIAS GAMES …
As reported at The Hill, CBS News is under fire for holding a videotaped clip from a Friday interview with President-elect Donald Trump urging supporters not to attack minorities until a “60 Minutes” broadcast on Sunday night. It would appear that CBS News and ’60 Minutes’ has learned nothing from the 2016 elections. CBS News is now under scrutiny for holding a video clip for two days of Donald Trump telling supporters not to attack minorities. Because some how that was not important as protests were going on in the street and many liberal news analysts were asking why Trump was being silent. Turns out it was just more MSM games. Wasn’t it the same media that was blaming Trump for the riots in the street?
Media Bias … they have learned nothing from Election 2016
“I am very surprised to hear that. I hate to hear it,” Trump told interviewer Lesley Stahl when told of some attacks on minorities that have reportedly occurred since his election victory Tuesday.
“I am so sorry to hear it, and I say stop it,” Trump said before looking directly into the camera. “And I say right to the camera, stop it.”
“60 Minutes” did release quotes from the Friday interview in advance, but only a statement by Trump on the Affordable Care Act.
“We chose to release a quote on the issue that affects the most Americans & that was his statement on Obamacare,” a spokesperson for CBS told CNN Monday.
Kai Ryssdal, host of “Marketplace,” called that reasoning “completely underwhelming.”
In the “60 Minutes” interview, Trump also had a message for protesters and those feeling anxious and fearful following his surprising election.
“I would tell them, ‘Don’t be afraid,’ absolutely,” Trump said. “We are going to bring our country back, but certainly, don’t be afraid.”
Podesta: Hillary Clinton Lost the 2016 Presidential Election Because the Media Gave Donald Trump ‘a Pass’
DENIAL IS NOT JUST A RIVER IN EGYPT … THE BLAME GAME BEGINS.
As reported at The Washington Times, Team Hillary blames their loss election night to Donald Trump because of FBI Director James Comey and a media “pass” for Trump translated into an electoral landslide for the billionaire. This is what happens when one cannot take blame for their own actions, doing, scandals and bad candidacy. Let’s get real folks, who honestly thinks the MSM gave Trump a pass? We know, from the WikiLeaks emails, that the media was in the tank for Hillary Clinton both during the Democrat primary against Bernie Sanders and in the general election. Blame the media? Seriously, talk about killing the messenger and the Democrats greatest propaganda weapon. The MSM savaged Donald Trump at every turn.
Let’s face it, Hillary had the Democrat party on her side, the MSM and even establishment Republicans. How could she lose? What she did not have was the truth of the matter that Americans felt discontent over the past 8 years under Obama. They wanted change. Change they not only could believe in, but could benefit from.
Hillary Clinton’s inner circle gathered for an autopsy of her failed presidential campaign and concluded that media bias in favor of Donald Trump contributed to his historic win.
A political postmortem of the Democratic Party’s Election Day results has concluded that FBI Director James Comey and a media “pass” for Mr. Trump translated into an electoral landslide for the billionaire.
A private conference call Thursday with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, communications director Jennifer Palmieri and other aides addressed what Ms. Palmieri called “the most devastating loss in the history of American politics,” The Hill reported Thursday.
The group’s conclusions differ from assessments of Mrs. Clinton from previously released WikiLeaks documents belonging to Mr. Podesta.
“The media always covered [Mrs. Clinton] as the person who would be president and therefore tried to eviscerate her before the election, but covered Trump who was someone who was entertaining and sort of gave him a pass,” Mr. Podesta said. “We need to reflect and analyze that and put our voices forward.”
The Hill: Team Clinton in complete meltdown of election results. At some point the Democrats just have to look at this and say, we had a bad and poorly flawed candidate. Even with that, according to most all polls she was supposed to win.
Polls between Clinton and Republican Donald Trump had already tightened with the Comey news broke, and the race appeared to get closer over the next week.
On Nov. 6, Comey said the FBI had not found any information in the new emails that would change its original decision that Clinton should not be charged.
Aides also blamed the media for the loss.
“The media always covered her as the person who would be president and therefore tried to eviscerate her before the election, but covered Trump who was someone who was entertaining and sort of gave him a pass,” Podesta said. “We need to reflect and analyze that and put our voices forward.”
Trump during the campaign frequently criticized the media for being too hard on him.
Podesta, whose hacked emails were released by WikiLeaks over the campaign’s final stretch, said top Clinton aides will argue that the press created a “false moral equivalency” in its coverage of Clinton and Trump.
The campaign chairman blamed the press for “the dominance of the way they covered the email” controversy, saying it overlooked “the conflicts of Trump’s businesses, the Russian contacts we are now learning to be true, the failure of the press following the 3-page leak to the New York Times to really dig into the income tax question.”
The Left Loses Thier Minds … Chris Matthews on Trump Protests: What Kind Of Statement Is There To Make? They Lost
THE LEFT BETTER GET THEIR PRESCRIPTIONS OF XANAX FILLED BEFORE OBAMACARE IS SCRAPPED …
The LEFT is still losing their collective minds as they cannot come to grips that they lost and Donald Trump is the president-elect. To see their constant angst and whining just shows how bias they truly are and were and how in the tank they were for Hillary Clinton.
Donna Brazile Says ‘My Conscience is Very Clear’ after the Former CNN Contributor & Current DNC Chair Donna Brazile Sent Even More Debate Questions to Hillary Clinton
MORE EVIDENCE OF THE CORRUPT COLLUSION BETWEEN THE MSM AND HILLARY CLINTON … LET’S GET ONE THINK CLEAR DONNA, YOU HAVE NO CONSCIENCE …
MEDIA BIAS, YA THINK? According to more Wikileaks emails released showed that Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile, the former CNN contributor, sent even more debate questions from a CNN town hall to the Clinton campaign. The total that we know of now is at four. Brazile was let go by CNN; however, do we honestly think that CNN, the Clinton News Network, was not in the tank for Hillary? Of course they were no matter what claims they say of outrage. They were caught red-handed colluding with Team Hillary. When first confronted, she denied she had done any wrong doing. Now, being caught for the fourth time colluding with Hillary Clinton while she was a so-called impartial member of the media and DNC, Donna Brazile says, “my conscience is very clear.” What more do you need America to understand that the MSM and Hillary Clinton fix has been in from the outset. Bernie Sanders supporters, your candidate never had a chance and he was screwed. By the associative property, so were you. Brazile said she had no regrets … WHAT!!! You committed an unethical act like this and no regrets? Take a good look America what life will look like under Hillary Clinton.
No regrets after they lie, cheat, steal and mislead the American public
Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile has already lost her contributor contract with CNN for leaking questions from a CNN town hall to the Clinton campaign. Monday night’s WikiLeaks release of emails from the personal account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta reveals Brazile sent even more questions ahead of the event, one that went to Hillary Clinton, the other was asked of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
On the day before the event, Brazile sent the following under the heading “UNIONS.”
Secretary Clinton, yesterday in St. Louis, you spoke at carpenters and others “who built this nation.” Both you and Senator Sanders depend on big union support. President Obama pushed for a massive infrastructure bill that would mean millions of jobs for in this area. Yet many of these trade unions have locked out Blacks and other minorities for years. Will you call a meeting with them before November, and if you win, when you are president, to demand that the trade unions stop freezing Blacks and others from these good paying jobs?
The official transcript of the town hall on CNN’s website has Roland Martin, one of the moderators, saying:
Secretary Clinton, yesterday you were in St. Louis, and you talked about carpenters and the rebuilding of the country, the folks who built this nation.
And, both you and Senator Sanders have significant union support, yet many of the trade unions that — we walk about built the country, they’ve locked out black folks and other minorities for decades. Would you, even right now, and even as president, call a meeting with the trade unions and say it’s time for you to open up those doors and bring in more African-Americans and Hispanics, and others be because those are high-paying jobs. And, if we keep saying rebuild America with a huge infrastructure and billions of dollars, they’re the ones who are going to do it. And, black folks and others are going to be left on the outside looking in.
