Majority of Americans Feel Media is a Threat to Democracy

Almost 60 percent of registered voters in a new poll said they feel that the mainstream media has become a threat to our democracy.

The latest New York Times-Siena College poll found 59 percent of voters feel the media as a “major threat to democracy,” while 25 percent said the press is a “minor threat.” Worse for the media, a mere 15 percent said the media poses no threat to the nation.

Per The Hill:

The divide fell sharply along partisan lines, with 87 percent of voters who supported former President Trump in 2020 indicating they view the media is a major threat, while 33 percent of Biden voters during that election cycle said the same thing.

Overall, 71 percent of voters agreed that democracy is under threat, while only 7 percent of voters rank a threat to democracy as a major issue this midterm election cycle.

An annual Gallup survey also published this week found only 34 percent of Americans believe major news organizations will report “fully, accurately and fairly” on current events, only slightly higher than in 2016, the lowest percentage the polling firm has ever recorded.

The New York Times-Siena College poll was conducted from Oct. 9 to Oct. 12 among 793 registered voters and has margin of error of 4 percentage points.

The media is exclusively left leaning. Today, journalists feel their job is to push extreme leftism. They aren’t American. And they aren’t even a tiny bit non-partisan.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

They are leftists bent on destroying America and re-building it into a leftist paradise.
