    Post-Election Survey: Voters Have No Confidence in Media​





    by Michael Patrick Leahy
    Breitbart News Network/Judicial Watch Post-Election Survey: Voters Have No Confidence in Media
    8 Nov 2012

    Rush Limbaugh calls them "Democrats with bylines."

    Most voters who watched the second Presidential debate saw CNN's Candy Crowley jump in and bail out President Barack Obama when he stumbled on Benghazi and correctly concluded she was biased in his favor.

    Many conservatives noticed how the mainstream media has played the role of Nixon's henchmen rather than Woodward and Bernstein in the Benghazi coverup and reporting on the Hurricane Sandy federal response debacle.

    Now a new survey completed by Breitbart News and Judicial Watch on election night confirms that most voters have no confidence in the media. As the press release announcing the results stated:


    77% of voters agreed with the statement: “The press is more likely to favor one candidate for office over another at the expense of their journalistic objectivity.” (emphasis added)

    More than half--57%--strongly agreed, while only 7% strongly disagreed.

    Why should we have any confidence that Breitbart hasn't skewed the pool from which the 77% was drawn? If the media isn't trusted and the media favored Obama, how did he win? There seems to be a disconnect in the conservative media between what they believe to be true and what's actually happening. That's why they were so sure Romney would win big and why this poll should be taken with a rather large grain of salt.

    One of the few positive developments recently is the denutting of the mainstream media.
