Quote:Nearly six in 10 Americans are upset with the news media, claiming in a new poll that it makes them angry and dissatisfied.

A new Quinnipiac poll asked this question:

"I am going to mention four phrases and ask you which one best describes how you feel about the job the news media has been doing covering American politics. Do you feel enthusiastic, satisfied but not enthusiastic, dissatisfied but not angry, or angry?"

Enthusiastic: 10%
Satisfied: 30%
Dissatisfied: 33%
Angry: 26%

Then they proceed to make a statement about it being Trump's fault.
While over 52% said their attitudes towards the news media had become worse due to Trump, this happened before Trump, otherwise Hillary would have been elected.
Seems like things are to the point where if the media says it few believe it.
Look at the BS CNN and NYT have been on and on about Russia, and Impeachment etc when Comey squashed all that in testimony.
The media is their own undoing, print media is nearly dead and Cable is a failing industry, destined to fall by the wayside in our lifetimes.
People are literally tuning out the establishment, because all it is, and ever was is propaganda.

The problem is that the gov and the news sheep are conducting business as if the rest of us don't exist.

It's troubling that 40% are enthusiastic or satisfied with the news.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

60% do not exist as far as they are concerned, (and shockingly around the same amount of people that are pro legalization. heh.)
The 40% roughly corresponds to 35% idiots, and 5% that profit in some way from the corporatist status quo.

Wouldn't read too much into the 60% thing. I bet 99% of Antifa want weed legalized.

Nearly 100% of the people I'm around complain about the media, and they aren't even close to geniuses. 37.gif

Ive never been Polled about anything in my life. Neither have any of my Family or friends. We had this conversation at a Family reunion last year. 100% of 68 people present had never been polled. Why? Because most of us are Republicans thats why.

I feel embarrassed for people around here swallowing everything the news say. So many times I've seen articles translated straight from CNN in local papers and my coworkers talk about it like it's some real crap.

late 1963 , at 8 years old , Cronkite spoke on JFK's Murder .
Bullshit I screamed .

I watched adults around me swallow it whole .

54 years later ,

think about it , that's half a century .

it's true , people can't handle the truth .

a small group of Think Tankers create a soothing scenario to Calm the minds
of people who need a lie to get by .

Comfort Zone .

The less I pay attention , the Happier I am .

Bumper sticker states : " If you're not outraged ,,,,, you're not paying attention "

I paid too much attention .
Now , I don't .

Why live outraged ?
better that I just travel , no roots , equates to no attachments .
No attachments ,,
equates to no concern .

They produce it to make you angry, it's a cover. Angry, emotional people don't think properly. If we thought about it we'd see how TPTB and corporations do nothing but screw us. Corralling the cattle.
