I think it would be better if the press actually admitted they were left leaning or right leaning instead of saying they are independent. Kind of like how Hannity admits he is on the right side. Everyone gets it, knows where he is coming from and that is okay.

IMHO there is no other single group as dangerous to our well being. There are socialists, progressives and even communists. The media carries their message.

LOL.

same poll:

26 Apr: The Week: Americans trust Comey and the news media more than Trump
A Quinnipiac poll released Thursday found that 54 percent of Americans think Comey is more likely to tell them the truth about important issues than Trump. Only 35 percent think the president is more trustworthy...
In December, the breakdown was 56 percent to 32 percent in Comey’s favor; last June, it was 56-36...

The poll also pit Trump against his other public enemy: the media. Similarly, 53 percent of Americans said they trust news media to tell them the truth more than Trump, while 37 percent prefer to believe Trump. Twenty-two percent of respondents went so far as to call the news media the “enemy of the people.”

Honestly, HOW could anyone believe the Leftist Media are innocent journalists who feel a responsibility to carry the news to the informed public?
