A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
A new Gallup poll shows that Americans feel it’s harder than ever to find the facts in the media.
Half of U.S. adults polled believe that even with media bias, there are enough sources now to find the facts, while 47% believe that there is so much bias it’s difficult to determine what is true.
This is way down from 1989 when 68% of Americans in a poll said that they believe people could discern the truth.
Among political parties, 72% of democrats, 46% of independents, and 31% of Republicans believe enough sources exist that people can find the facts.
In this age of fake news, lies, and bias, it’s no wonder Americans are less confident than ever that their fellow Americans can find the truth from the media. We have more sources now, but more doesn’t necessarily mean better.
