So why do the mainstream networks spend 55% of their news coverage on Russia when only 6% of Americans care about it?
Notice how the media push A BIASED LIBERAL POLITICAL AGENDA down the throats of Americans disguised as honest reporting and spend more time on topics Americans find far less important -- especially if they support a liberal agenda -- than on the topics far more important to Americans.
This is a disgusting tale of massive liberal media bias, media dishonesty, anti-democratic media principles and radical liberal political propaganda disguised as news... and it goes against everything this country stands for.
The news media today are in collusion with Democrats to push their agenda at the expense of what the American people find important. They have become nothing but a propaganda mouthpiece for the left. Instead of fairly reporting the news and responding to what the American people find important, their agenda is to TELL the American people what THEY want them to do, what THEY want them to believe, what THEY want them to think.
They don't want THE PEOPLE to be in control of the country. They want their liberal puppet-masters to be in control instead... even if it means using lies, fake news, false propaganda and deception to overturn the democratic will of the people and the duly elected President THE PEOPLE chose.
I can't think of anything more anti-democratic or anti-American than that.
Networks Spend 55% of Time Covering Russia-Trump, But Only 6% of Americans Say It’s ‘Top Issue’
Most Helpful Opinions
The poll does say that well over half the population think the Russia story is important, and the media has only spent a small amount of time on each version of the Russia story, if you treat each statement that's been shown to be a lie as a separate version.
From the Bloomberg article:
"Trump has called the expanding investigations into possible connections between his presidential campaign and Russia a “witch hunt.” But the public isn’t necessarily taking his side. Since the president’s decision to oust former FBI Director James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s standing has improved. It’s now viewed favorably by 68 percent, up 10 points since December. Comey is viewed positively by 43 percent, while 36 percent see him negatively.
Meanwhile, most Americans don’t share the president’s apparent soft spot for Vladimir Putin: 65 percent view the Russian president negatively -- and 53 percent say it’s realistic to think Russian hacking will disrupt future U. S. elections."
