Residents Blame Media for Making Ferguson Worse

Not sure why someone needed a survey to figure this out....

A poll of residents in St. Louis County show that they blame the media for making things in Ferguson worse.

Both black and whites say the media did a lousy job handing the story, but whites were much more critical of the media.

The Remington Research Group found:

Nearly 75 percent of all respondents told pollsters the media contributed to making the situation in Ferguson worse.

Of those criticizing the media coverage in Ferguson, 50 percent were African-American and 81 percent were white.

Only 12% of whites thought the media made things better in Ferguson.
