Fake But Inaccurate

Whose side is fake news on?
According to the poll, 62 percent of Americans believe that the media favors one party over the other, while only 27 percent believe it favors neither party.

Gallup asked respondents, who said that the media favors a party, which party it favors: 64 percent said the media favors Democrats, and 22 percent said it favors Republicans.

Gallup notes that in 2003, the last time they asked the question, Americans were about evenly divided on media bias. They were also about evenly divided when Gallup first asked the question in 1995.

In December 2000, during the election recount between former President George W. Bush and his opponent, former Vice President Al Gore, just over half of Americans — 51 percent — said that the media had a partisan bias, while 41 said it did not.

Gallup notes that Americans who say that the media favors one party have consistently believed that it favors Democrats.
