Is there any wonder why most Republicans don’t trust the press? Nearly everyone who works in the media is a Liberal and they constantly attack Conservatives unfairly. In the 2016 election, most of the media was openly rooting for Hillary Clinton. They didn’t even try to hide it.
Take a look at this data from the Cato Institute:
63% of Republicans Say Journalists Are an “Enemy of the American People”
Early in his presidential tenure, Donald Trump tweeted that the national news media is “fake news” and that it is an enemy of the American people.40 Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Americans do not agree with President Trump that journalists today are an “enemy of the American people.” Thirty-five percent (35%) side with the president.
However, nearly two-thirds (63%) of Republicans agree that journalists are an enemy of the American people. Such a charge is highly polarizing: 89% of Democrats and 61% of independents disagree.
The media could have corrected this problem by replacing some of the most openly partisan people who were so wrong about the election. Instead, they doubled down and went even further left.
This issue will persist for ass long as the American people see the media openly working against their interests.
Why is that so hard for the media to understand?
