There’s one new poll out that the mainstream media is trying to hide.
They don’t want anyone to know their shocking failure.
CNN got some bad coronavirus news that could put them out of business.
Usually, news networks do well off crises because people consume more current events during those times.
The problem the media is facing is that Trump Derangement Syndrome took over their reporting in 2016 and they started to report everything Trump did as a shocking crisis that could end civilization.
Now there’s an actual crisis and the media are still reporting in a hyperbolic manner that is just encouraging fear.
There are a lot of unknowns about the Chinese coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China in November 2019.
The number of cases and deaths are growing every day and this is certainly a serious situation.
However, there are major shortfalls with the data currently available. Many countries are only testing patients that are admitted into the hospital.
That makes the virus look far more deadly than it is because only people who are seriously ill are being tested.
Scientists know that a certain percentage of people who get coronavirus never develop symptoms but the percentage is unknown. Estimates range from 20%-50%, and even more people just get mild symptoms.
Many of those people aren’t getting tested.
The media can take the incomplete data and report on it as if it were complete, and give people a false view of the situation.
The public can tell that the media’s reporting it as the current situation.
According to a Gallup poll, the majority of American people approve of every response to the outbreak of coronavirus except for the media’s.
As Breitbart news reports:
A Gallup poll released Wednesday shows the American people approve — and by wide margins — of the way every institution is responding to the coronavirus … except for the news media, whose numbers are not only awful, but in far, far, far last place.
Here’s the breakdown of approve/disapprove:
U.S. Hospitals: 88 percent vs. 10 percent.
Your child’s school or daycare: 83 percent vs. 9 percent
Your state government: 82 percent vs. 17 percent
Your employer: 82 percent vs. 14 percent
Government health agencies such as the CDC or NIH: 80 percent vs. 17 percent
Vice President Mike Pence: 61 percent vs. 32 percent
President Donald Trump: 60 percent vs. 38 percent
Congress: 59 percent vs. 37 percent
And way, way, way, way down at the bottom sits…
The news media: 44 percent vs. 55 percent
Will you just look at that…
Every single institution responding to the Chinese virus, even Congress, is above water by more than 20 points. Trump is above water by 22 points. And the media are underwater by nine.
This poll shows clearly that the mainstream media has lost the trust of the American people with their inaccurate reporting.
CNN and the mainstream media need to stop with the hype and regain the trust of Americans by actually reporting information.
