From Gallup April 5, 2017.

“Six in 10 in US See Partisan Bias in News Media”

“STORY HIGHLIGHTS

62% say news media favors one political party over the other
More believe media favors Democrats than Republicans
Clear majority of Americans say media is “often inaccurate””
“In a contentious political landscape, Americans increasingly believe the news media generally favors one political party over the other. Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults say the media has a favorite, up from about 50% in past years. Just 27% now say the media favors neither major party.

When Gallup last asked this question in February 2003, Americans were about evenly divided on the issue. Americans were also evenly split when the question was first asked in April 1995. In December 2000, in the midst of the election results recount between George W. Bush and Al Gore, slightly more Americans perceived partisan bias in the news media (51%) than believed the news media was politically neutral (41%).

Republicans are mostly responsible for the increase in perceptions of partisan media bias since 2003. Currently, 77% of Republicans say the media favors one party over the other; in 2003, 59% of Republicans said the same. By comparison, 44% of Democrats now say the media plays favorites, unchanged from the 44% who said so in 2003.

Americans Believe News Media Favors Democrats

Gallup asked those who perceive political bias in the news media to say which party the news media favors. Almost two-thirds (64%) of those who believe the media favors a political party say it is the Democratic Party. Only about a third as many (22%) believe the media favors Republicans.”

    “When you pick up your morning or evening newspaper and think
    you are reading the news of the world, what you are reading
    is a propaganda which has been selected, revised, and doctored
    by some power which has a financial interest in you.”
    …. Upton Sinclair

    CW………..
    ………..I believe that the words of Upton Sinclair are quite accurate, and well founded. Of late we have had almost a continuous barrage of sick, twisted lies coming from both the media and the Democratic party. I see no reason to believe that it will end in the foreseeable future. Probably the only thing that will bring it to the curb is severe prosecution, and subsequent imprisonment of the liars who perpetrate the bullshi#. In a parallel move America MUST ADDRESS, and vigorously confront the lies that have already been digested as the truth. This means MASS RE EDUCATION of many millions of Americans who BELIEVE the LIES. Whether this is even possible is largely anybody’s guess.

    AND NOW……..
    ………..IT has begun……..Tomahawks launched at selected sites in Syria. Maybe we do have a PRESIDENT with GONADS.

  4. oldsailor84

    AND……..
    ………SO FAR………43 Tomahawks launched.

  5. oldsailor84

    …….THE NUMBER of Tomahawks has increased to 60. Apparently this is NOT a SMALL OPERATION, and it also implies a much greater risk. Hopefully the ICC will pass a ruling which declares Assad as a WAR CRIMINAL. Such a declaration by the ICC would be extremely helpful.

  6. oldsailor84

    AND MAYBE………
    ………..Putin will tell Assad “YOU BROUGHT THIS UPON YOURSELF” comrade………..but hopefully the COs of the destroyers in the Med will be prepared for INCOMING MAIL. This could happen………and might happen. If a US ship is attacked, there will be substantial escalation.

  7. AND SOON………
    ………we will hear about what the SNOTNOSED children of America think about the strategic attack. There is little doubt that people like Chucky Baby, Mzzzzzzzzzzz. Waters, Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Wine Stine, and the HEADCHEESE of the DNC will all SCREAM THEIR INVECTIVES, AND EXPLETIVES AT PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  8. oldsailor84

    AND ……..
    ………for President Trump to order the missile attack against Syria while the President of China was in the US may turn into a very bad situation very quickly. This makes it appear that he was somehow involved in the attack. I don’t think that China will take that sitting down…………time will tell. I pray that cool heads, and reason will prevail.

  9. oldsailor84

    AND NOW……..
    …………will the rest of the world back up President Trump? This will be necessary to provide a reason for Putin to act in a positive manner. It is beginning to show that he did NOTHING after he signed the declaration against the use of chemical weapons. He failed to do what he had agreed to do. Sarin gas was banned by all of the world governments LONG AGO, and anyone who would order the use of the gas should be condemned as a WAR CRIMINAL, and should be brought to justice by the ICC. I believe that a FORMAL ICC COMDENATION of Assad should be sought very soon. If the ICC takes no action the entire body will be looked upon by many nations as a USELESS, and an otherwise cowardly entity which will balk at enforcing world law. If ever there was a need for their condemnation of an illegal act it is NOW.

    THE ATTACK…….
    ………was concentrated upon the airport from which the chemical attack on the civilians originated. The US tracked the aircraft from which the Sarin gas was dropped in the form of a bomb. Fortunately we now have cameras in space that are capable of seeing an ant from 100,000 ft. The US government has the goods on Assad.
    The Tomahawk is a modern day version of the Nazi V1 missile. Unfortunately they flew at a slightly reduced speed from that of the Tomahawk, and some of the V1s were shot out of the air by the pilots of our Rolls Royce Merlin equipped P-51 Mustangs. The later Mustangs were capable of airspeeds well over 475 MPH, in level flight, and upwards of 500 mph in a shallow dive using engine boost. This allowed the P-51s to overtake the V1 and shoot it down. The V2 was another story!

  11. oldsailor84

    IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG……….
    …………the SNOTNOSED child prodigies are already foaming at the mouth, and wringing their hands, as they hurl their EXPLETIVES at President Trump. There was two such people this morning on Fox and Friends………….both are alleged EXPERTS ON SYRIA………..they are about 25 years old ………if that, and seem to be real experts at oral diarrhea only.
