Report: Media Bias is more of a problem than Big contributions in Politics

Fifty-five percent (55%) of U.S. voters continue to think that media bias is a bigger problem in politics today than big campaign contributions, identical to the finding in August 2008.

Thirty-two percent (32%) say big contributions are the bigger problem, but that’s down four points from the previous survey. Thirteen percent (13%) more are not sure.
Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters say they are more likely to contribute time or money to a political campaign this year compared to previous election years.
Voters ages 30 to 49 are the most wary of the media’s influence on politics today.
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Republicans and 62% of unaffiliated voters say media bias is the bigger problem in politics, a view shared by just 37% of Democrats. The plurality (46%) of Democrats says campaign contributions are a bigger problem.

  1. In my own defense against (left or right) media bias, I recently built polurls.com as a political blog aggregator to help me see a quick snapshot of left-leaning, right-leaning and centrist blogs all on one page.
    Because of the format, no one blogger can hijack my feed stream. The red page only shows the top conservative/libertarian blogs, the blue page shows progressive blogs and the purple page shows a mix.
    It’s a fast and interesting way to browser the latest political news. The purple page does a particularly good job of showing a wide-spectrum of current political opinions. Think popurls, but for politics.
