The media has been under fire for its biased coverage of COVID-19, and new polling shows Americans are taking notice.
Rasmussen released new polling data showing that Americans are not impressed with the media coverage of the pandemic.
“Fewer Americans approve of how the media are covering the COVID-19 pandemic, and half now think the threat of the virus is being exaggerated,” Rasmussen said.
The poll goes on to say that less than half the country considers the coverage “excellent” or “good.
The media has taken fire for coverage of everything from the origins of the virus, the efficacy of cloth masks, vaccination, mandates relating to children, and other issues.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 10% of American Adults rate media coverage of the ongoing coronavirus crisis excellent, and another 25% rate the media’s COVID-19 coverage good. That’s a decline in approval from July, when 42% rated the media’s coverage of the pandemic excellent or good. The number who say the media is doing a poor job is now 40%, up from 29% in July.”
