Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Infowars.com: “Poll: 84 Per Cent of Americans Blame Media For Political Divisions in the Country”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A new poll has found that 84 per cent of Americans blame the media for creating corrosive political divisions in the country.

The Knight Foundation/Gallup poll reveals that 86 per cent of respondents say they see “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of political bias in the media. This compares to 62 per cent who felt the same way back in 2007.

As expected given the media’s left-wing prejudice, Democrats are less concerned than Republicans about media bias, with only 22 per cent having an unfavorable view of the press compared to 75 per cent of Republicans.

“Americans blame the media for political divisions, but they also see the potential for the media to heal these divides,” reports the Knight Foundation. “Eighty-four percent of Americans say the media is to blame for political division in this country. Still, 84% also say the media can serve as a healing force.”

The survey also found that 54 per cent believe fake news is reported deliberately while 74 per cent believe media owners are influencing news coverage.
