FAKE NEWS, FAKE POLLS …
A recent CNN poll shows that Democrats have a 10 point lead over Republicans in a generic ballot test, 52% of likely voters to 42%. But wait a minute, has the liberal MSM leaned nothing from the 2016 elections and all of the bogus polling? However, what should we expect from CNN Fake News? Let’s take a look at the methodology of the poll. So in a poll where CNN states that Democrats have a 10% point lead, they sampled 34% Democrats and only 25% Republicans. Really CNN? Then there was a so-called 40% Independent.
Democrats maintain a wide lead over Republicans in the race for control of the House of Representatives, a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS finds, including a 10-point lead among those most likely to turn out this November.
In a generic ballot test, 52% of likely voters back the Democratic candidate for House of Representatives in their district while 42% back the Republican. Among all registered voters, Democrats hold a 12-point margin over the GOP, suggesting preferences have not shifted much since an August CNN Poll, which did not include an assessment of likely voters.
MORE ON METHODOLOGY
A total of 1,003 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. Among the entire sample, 34% described themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 40% described themselves as independents or members of another party.
Didn’t CNN already dump their former polling firm ORC after the 2016 elections because of the BS polling and data? No one trusts fake news and fake polling. It does not appear that much has changed.
Most of the headlines about CNN’s new public-opinion poll this week focused on President Donald Trump’s 38 percent approval rating. But there was also this: After a 2016 election in which most of the data underestimated Trump’s chances, CNN has a new pollster.
The new poll was conducted by SSRS, a major survey-research company, instead of CNN’s old partner, ORC International. CNN confirmed this week that its partnership with ORC, which included co-branding of the poll, has ended after more than a decade.
The switch comes at a perilous moment for both the media and the polling industry. Attacked by the president as “fake news” for results he disagrees with, pollsters and the news organizations they work with inspire little confidence from the public. A Marist-McClatchy poll — yes, a poll about polling — back in March found that only 7 percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in polls, and just 29 percent said they have a good amount of trust in polls.
Liberal MSM Loses Their Mind Upon Justice Kennedy Retirement … MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, ‘Hell to Pay’ If Democrats Don’t Block Anthony Kennedy Replacement (VIDEO)
THE LIBERAL MSM LOSING THEIR MINDS WITH JUSTICE KENNEDY RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT …
Hmm, so why would the liberal MSM become so insane by the announcement of the retirement of Justice Kennedy? Do they think the Supreme Court is supposed to be more powerful than the Legislative or Executive branches of government? Yesterday, following the retirement announcement of Justice Kennedy, the LEFT-wing Democrat media lost their minds. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews stated, that if Democrats “don’t use everything they’ve got, if they don’t play hardball, I think they’re through.” Matthews went on to say, “If they allow Trump to fill the Supreme Court with another conservative who will not share Justice Anthony Kennedy’s views on social issues like marriage quality, then the Democratic leadership “will have hell to pay.” The LEFT, Democrats and the liberal MSM can kick, scream, whine and throw all the temper tantrums they want. The fact of the matter is they have no power to stop it. Honestly, who thinks that had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Presidential election, Heaven forbid, that she would have appointed a Justice comparable to that of Scalia? As for Kennedy, he might not have even considered stepping down.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday said that the Senate would hold a vote on Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s successor this fall.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews did not mince words in reacting to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s surprise retirement announcement on Wednesday.
“I don’t think the Democrats should allow meetings to occur with Trump’s nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy,” Matthews said. “I think they have to fight eye for an eye for what happened in ‘16 when the Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, refused to even consider or even meet with Merrick Garland.”
If the Democratic leadership under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “allows this to go forward,” Matthews continued, they are going to have a “huge problem with the Democratic base.” He pointed to incumbent Congressman Joe Crowley’s loss the night before to young progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a sign of just how vulnerable the establishment wing of the Democratic Party is right now.
“There is no way politically the Democratic base will stand for any kind of hearings or vote for a Trump nominee before the election,” he added. “We’ve got an election in four and half months. There’s no reason to consider a replacement on the Supreme Court in that time.” Matthews said McConnell has “no right” to bring a nominee up for a vote after what he did to Merrick Garland two years ago.
Who finds this comical that the LEFT is going crazy over a Ronald Reagan SCOTUS appointee?
FOX News Channel Still the Undisputed King of Cable … Sean Hannity taking the Title of Highest-rated host in Cable News
FNC STILL THE CABLE KING EVEN WITH ALL THE SO-CALLED LIBERAL BLUE WAVE …
The liberal MSM can claim all they want that some how uber-lib Rachel Maddow of MSNBC is on the same level as those at Fox News like Sean Hannity; however, they would be lying and that would be more fake news. The Fox News Channel is #1 and it is not even close. According to Nielsen Media Research for May 2018, FNC was #1 for the 197th consecutive month, and Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.384 million and CNN’s 835,000. Also, Fox News had 10 of the top 15 shows in cable news, with Sean Hannity taking the title of highest-rated host in cable news. Hannity had an average total audience of 3.261 million, followed by MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (2.627 million), and FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight (2.617 million), The Ingraham Angle (2.617 million) and The Five (2.153 million). Keep in mind that FNC completely changed their prime time line up and said good bye to the Bill O’Reilly and Megyn what’s her name and added Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. They not only did not miss a beat, they got better.
What happened to the rise of MSNBC? After showing historic growth–and a few months in 2017 when Rachel Maddow took the title of most-watched host in all of cable news, beating Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity–the just-released results of the May ratings period look very familiar:Fox News won–everything.
In ratings data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research, FNC extended its run of consecutive months at number one to a staggering 197, while building hitting another impressive milestone: Fox News Channel has now beaten every other network in basic cable for 23 months straight, based on total day ratings, with an average total day audience in May of 1.4 million viewers.
In prime time, Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.384 million and CNN’s 835,000.Among viewers 25-54, the group most coveted by advertisers, FNC shook off a challenge in recent months from MSNBC to claim a clear victory: 461,000 viewers, well ahead of MSNBC (329,000) and CNN (265,000).
So how could FNC possible beat all their liberal cable competitors when we have been told there is a “blue wave” of liberal discontent?
The President Donald Trump 2017 Fake News Awards … Liberal Democrat Media Complex Continues Their Bias, False Reporting
SO MANY PEOPLE WANTED TO SEE THIS THAT IT SHUT DOWN THE GOP.GOV SERVERS …
It is the announcement of the much anticipated 2017 President Donald Trump Fake News Awards. Check out the winners below. We have known for years that the MSM was liberal and bias; however, under the Trump presidency they have sunk to new low levels. This is not a matter of news stories that Trump did not like, these are false news stories just made up by the media. The liberal MSM just passes off opinion and their liberal agenda as fact. The #1 fake news story of 2017 was the preposterous one where the New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic victory over Hillary Clinton that the economy would never recover. How ignorant and foolish could one possibly be? Sorry Business Insider, if the news-media industry is in fact governed by a foundational set of ethical standards and doesn’t just write whatever they want to, then none of the stories below would have ever made public. The fact is there is only one standard for the media, pushing their liberal agenda and crafting stories to said agenda.
The media is trusted with First Amendment rights and freedom of speech. This is a great responsibility and not to be used to just provide hit jobs against individuals you do not like. If you dislike the president calling you “fake news” then print the truth. Provide the same media standard you did for Barack Obama to Trump. Because at this point, journalism is pretty much dead in the US.
- The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover. (Never recover, eh? Instead we are witness to a record DOW over 26,000, jogs being created and blacks and Hispanics are all-time record lows in unemployment. What did almost crash the stock markets was the #2 Fake story from Brian Ross.)
- ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
- CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
- TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
- Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.
- CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
- CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.
- CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
- The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
- And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!
Why were 90% of news stories negative to President Donald Trump from the media? That hardly took place under 8 years of Obama. Where was the media on the incredibly accomplishments of the United States economy under President Trump like the economy creating nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President’s inauguration, African Americans and Hispanics enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history, the Trump tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans, the corporate tax cuts that have provided bonuses and other benefits to over 2 million employees to date, Trump’s plan to cut regulations issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action, the American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR, the threat of ISIS and their Caliphate being crushed in Iraq and Syria, and so many more.
THE AMERICAN MEDIA SHOULD BE SO PROUD … THEIR LIBERAL BIAS NOW RANKS THEM LOWER THAN PAVADA IN RUSSIA …
According to the latest Pew Research poll the United States media is less trusted than media in any other country including Russia, Mexico, Ghana and Nigeria. Maybe even Haiti. The MSM in the U.S. has continued to be nothing more than the LEFT’s bias agenda for years; however, with the election of President Donald Trump, they have truly jumped the shark. The MSM does not care whether there are supportive facts or not in promoting their hate-Trump stories. Who cares whether the sources are credible? As long as the story-line fits the liberal media agenda, it is fit to print or show on TV. Sadly, the MSM has become nothing more than a political propaganda vehicle of the Democrat party.
Hmm, which makes former President Obama’s remarks about FOX News viewers not being like those that watch the MSM even more remarkable.
Publics around the world overwhelmingly agree that the news media should be unbiased in their coverage of political issues, according to a new Pew Research Center survey of 38 countries. Yet, when asked how their news media are doing on reporting different political issues fairly, people are far more mixed in their sentiments, with many saying their media do not deliver. And, in many countries, there are sharp political differences in views of the media – with the largest gap among Americans.
To build off Pew Research Center’s earlier findings about U.S. news media habits and attitudes, this new cross-national survey begins to study these dynamics globally. The survey finds that a median of 75% across 38 countries say it is never acceptable for a news organization to favor one political party over others when reporting the news. Just 20% say this is sometimes okay. People in Europe show the greatest opposition to political bias in their news, including 89% in Spain and 88% in Greece who think this is unacceptable. In the United States, 78% say the news media should never favor one political party over another. In only five countries do at least three-in-ten believe it is okay to favor one side.
