8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”

97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.

And now they continue to show their stupidity by carrying negative comments about Trump joining his family for dinner without telling them beforehand. What immature whiners!

I believe the media pundits are saying exactly what has been written for them to say. They read scripts which are prepared by the editors. The editors understand completely what their bosses (owners) want them to say on air.

It is all theatre.
