After watching the way our corrupt and biased media has covered this election, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that so many of the American people see the media as a threat to our democracy.

CNS News reports:

Russian Hackers? 45% Call News Media ‘Primary Threat That Might Try to Change Election Results’

More people see the news media–as opposed to Russian hackers or political bosses–as the “primary threat that might try to change the election result,” according to a recent Suffolk University/USA Today poll.

Pollsters asked 1,000 likely voters: “What do you think is the primary threat that might try to change the election results?”

45.53% said “the news media”–followed by “the national political establishment” (20.79%); “undecided” (13.42%); “foreign interests such as Russian hackers” (10%); and “local political bosses” (8.95%).

When asked whether they thought the news media was “acting completely of its own accord or coordinating stories with individual campaigns,” less than half of respondents (47.8%) said that the media was reporting on the campaigns independently, while about a third (38.8%) said they believed that the media was coordinating with the campaigns it covered.

Another 12.6% of survey respondents were “undecided” whether there was coordination between the news media and individual campaigns.

That’s a report you won’t read on CNN’s website.

Why would they admit their bias?
