Fresh into President Trump’s second year in office, voters see even more bias against the president in the media than they did at the start of his presidency.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters believe when most reporters write or talk about the president, they are trying to block him from passing his agenda, up from 44% a year ago and 47% in August. Just five percent (5%) now think most reporters are trying to help Trump pass his agenda, down from 10% a month into his presidency. Thirty-seven percent (37%) believe they’re just trying to report the news in an unbiased manner. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

In today’s 24/7 news cycle, most Americans still think the media is obsessed with getting the story first, when they think they should be focused on getting it right.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of American Adults think most major news organizations are more concerned with getting a story first than they are with getting it right. That’s generally unchanged from a year ago, but is  down noticeably from 84% in September 2013 when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question.  Just 30% think they’re more concerned with getting it right.

The dead were not even buried from the Florida school shooting before the partisan hacks and jackals in the press showed up.
