28% Of Americans Are Unhinged
The vast majority of American voters believe media bias is alive and well – 83% of likely voters said the media is biased in one direction or another, while just 11% believe the media doesn’t take political sides, a recent IPDI/Zogby Interactive poll shows.The media skew Right only to those who are far Left, specifically those who are anti-Capitalist and fret over corporate ownership of media. They seem to neglect the fact that many who have made billions in the media -- Ted Turner comes to mind -- are staked out as far on the whacko left as they are.
The Institute for Politics, Democracy, and the Internet is based at George Washington University in Washington D.C.
Nearly two-thirds of those online respondents who detected bias in the media (64%) said the media leans left, while slightly more than a quarter of respondents (28%) said they see a conservative bias on their TV sets and in their column inches.
Actually, I should change the headline to read 39% of America is unhinged. The 11% who see no media bias don't have a hinge on their mental doorways, either.
