Most voters think Democrats are wrong to bar Fox News from hosting any of their presidential candidate debates but don’t want President Trump to retaliate against pro-Democratic networks.

Just 28% disagree, while 15% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Here we go again. If you think the manure-spreaders of sensationalism who masquerade as ethical practitioners of journalism learned anything from last week's MAGA-bashing Covington Catholic High School hoax, I have three words for you:

Fifty-nine percent (59%) say they use social media every day or nearly every day.

News that publisher Gannett is potentially being bought by hedge-fund-backed media group Digital First Media is just the latest sign that print news organizations are consolidating. Americans have more faith though that online and other news sources will be able to make up the difference.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 63% of American Adults rarely or never buy a print version of their local newspaper, up from 57% in May  and from just 30% who said the same 10 years ago.

Thirty-six percent (36%), though, still buy their local newspaper, including 15% who do so every day or nearly every day. Another seven percent (7%) buy a copy several times a week, and 15% purchase a print newspaper once a week or less. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
