Study: Nearly All Americans Are Troubled By The Current State Of The Media

No comments

A new study paints a troubling picture of the current media landscape. According to a study by Bospar, the American people do not like the current state of the media. The study says,

“Bospar and Propeller Insights surveyed 1,010 American adults and discovered that more than 95% are troubled by the current state of media.”

The reasons for these concerns were also asked and are as followed:

  1. Reports on fake news – 53%
  2. Reporting gossip – 49%
  3. Lying spokespeople – 48%
  4. Celebrity opinions – 36%
  5. Left-wing agendas – 34%
  6. Gotcha journalism – 33%
  7. Right-wing agendas – 32%
  8. Puff pieces in exchange for access to other important interviews – 31%
  9. Blind items being reported in the news – 30%
  10. Hit pieces – 21%
  11. Rise of independent contributors versus on-staff media – 14%

The study also asked about the impact of unethical journalism and people cited the following problems:

  • 64%: It creates division and partisanship
  • 63%: It fuels inaccuracies
  • 60%: It incites hate
  • 57%: It creates fear

The media should be extremely worried about these findings. Americans distrusting the media is dangerous, but is understandable. Anyone who turns on a station knows how biased it is going to be.

Trump is winning the war on the “fake news media.” This is good politically for him, but bad for the American people. Unfortunately the problem is likely only to get worse. According to the study the majority of people think the reporting will only get worse during the 2020 presidential campaign. Trump broke everyone’s brains.
