Do you trust America’s mainstream media would furnish the public with untainted, unadulterated, and unbiased poll data during elections time?
More importantly, do you believe the media harbors a proclivity to slant data in ways that bolsters its own political views and self-interests? For instance, the media might secretly manipulate poll data around electoral candidates so as to aid in that candidate’s popularity scores.
Accordingly, America’s political parties leading up to the 2020 presidential elections should be mindful of the media’s addiction to ratings, and how that behavior may negatively affect their political campaigns. Remember, mainstream media is on no one’s short leash, but rather a freaking runaway train.
Humor: CNN, “the most trusted name in news.” A few tees in total disagreement.
