Perhaps it shouldn’t matter that the MSM are trying to cover for the president (AKA the man without a plan) in the current debt negotiations. Americans, the Hill reports, just don’t trust ’em:
Likely voters hold a dismal view of the news media, generally regarding reporters as biased, unethical and too close to the politicians they purport to cover, according to a new poll for The Hill.
A full 68 percent of voters consider the news media biased, the poll found. Most, 46 percent, believe the media generally favor Democrats, while 22 percent said they believe Republicans are favored, with 28 percent saying the media is reasonably balanced.
“This,” Don Surber quips, “This may also reflect the fact that there are twice as many conservatives as there are liberals.” I don’t think media coverage of the current debt crisis has helped their image.
