Skip to comments.The Washington Post Takes Anti-Trump Bias To A New Level
Posted on 01/18/2017 5:14:16 AM PST by expat_panama
The mainstream press loves to tell readers that it can be trusted because it employs professional journalists backed by layers of editors. Oh, and they're all unbiased.
So how to explain a recent Washington Post headline, which manages both to misrepresent its own poll and expose the ridiculous extent to which its reporters and editors will go to bash President-elect Donald Trump?
The story is about a Washington Post/ABC News poll that asks, among other things, whether Trump should sell his business to avoid any possible conflicts of interest while president.
Trump has taken steps to avoid these conflicts, although not to the satisfaction of some in the media many of whom probably wouldn't be satisfied no matter what Trump did.
What did the poll find? It found that most (52%) think the steps Trump has taken are enough...
...Democrats are far out of the mainstream on this question, which is just another way of saying that Democrats deeply loathe and distrust Trump. But you'd never know that reading the Post story, since you have to dig down into the poll itself to discover the partisan breakdown.
The Daily Caller, a conservative news site, wrote the proper headline for this story: "Majority Of Voters Support Trump's Business Decision, Poll Finds."
Simple, direct, and as it turns out, unbiased.
If readers can't count on a major newspaper to fairly represent the results of its own Trump poll, why should they trust them to report anything else about Trump in an unbiased way?

Washington Post content is Progressive, racial, social and economic bigotry. They need to live in Russia for a year to see how “well” socialism treats the unfortunate majority.
The post is a rag. Pay no attention to it.
I think the DOJ anti trust division needs to break up Amazon
Trump is saying he was going to offer bigger press room but they went nuts so now he is going to pick and choose who gets in...will cnn and wapo be out????
You think the Post is bad? NPR thinks the President Elect’s name is “Trump who was recently included in an unsubstantiated report that Russian’s Vladimir Putin is holding compromising information on Trump’s activities in Russia”. They CONTINUE to include this every time his name is mentioned, even though EVERYONE disavows the report now.
