Conservatives have known for decades that the mainstream media is a wing of the Democratic Party. But, now that we have Donald Trump broadcasting that issue to the masses, more and more agree.
One-third of the swing voting, non-ideological, mushy middle of the American electorate believes the established media is unfairly pulling for Hillary Clinton, while one-in-ten say the media is backing Donald Trump, according to a survey of 2,000 voters by Morning Consult.
Overall, 38 percent of voters believe the established media is biased and is trying to get Hillary Clinton into the White House, according to the survey. Twelve percent of those 2,000 voters believe the media is backing Trump. But that overall result will be dismissed by media boosters as merely a reflection of the nation’s partisan affiliations.
That’s why the views of the less-partisan, not-very-political swing-voters can be used to judge the media’s partisanship in the 2016 election. And that group’s answers show a lopsided conclusion that the media is biased for the big-government, progressive, insider candidate over the New York real estate businessman and populist outsider.
