International News Poll

  1. Yes, all of them all of the time.
  2. Yes, most of the major outlets at least sometimes.
  3. Sure, a few. Every industry has its ethical fringe.
  4. Not the news outlets I choose to read or watch. This is not an issue for me.
  5. No, not at all, people sometimes just don’t like the facts.
  6. It’s not the news reports that are the problem; it’s the commentators media outlets employ to “analyze” the news.
  7. This is a politically manufactured issue, it’s not “the media” that’s the problem.
