86% of Americans said that the media is biased, with 49% of respondents saying that there is “a great deal” of political bias in news coverage and 37% saying there is “a fair amount” of bias, according to the poll.

People are more concerned with other people’s news sources than they are with their own; when given a choice, 69% of Americans were concerned about bias in the news that other people were viewing, while 29% were concerned about the bias in their own news sources. 56% of respondents agreed that there was political bias in the news source that they relied on the most, the poll found.

The poll found that Americans are divided along party lines when it comes to trusting the media. Republicans distrust the media more than Democrats – 71% of Republicans reported viewing the media “very” or “somewhat” unfavorably, while 22% of Democrats and 52% of independents said the same.

Turn on CNN and what do you hear? Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad.

Turn on MSNBC and what do you hear? Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad. Trump is bad.
