6 in 10 Say the News Media Makes Them Angry


A new poll shows that nearly 6 in 10 Americans are upset with the news media, claiming the media makes them angry and dissatisfied.

The Quinnipiac poll asked this question:

"I am going to mention four phrases and ask you which one best describes how you feel about the job the news media has been doing covering American politics. Do you feel enthusiastic, satisfied but not enthusiastic, dissatisfied but not angry, or angry?"

Enthusiastic: 10%
Satisfied: 30%
Dissatisfied: 33%
Angry: 26%
Who to blame? President Trump, of course.

Quinnipiac said that a majority believe that Trump has helped to change attitudes about the media for the worse:

"Do you believe that President Trump has changed American attitudes towards the news media for the better, for the worse, or hasn't President Trump had an impact on American attitudes towards the news media?"

For the better: 22%
For the worse: 52%
No impact: 20%
