Poll: Majority of Americans Think Mainstream Media Publishes 'Fake News'
Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of "fake news," according to a poll released by The Hill and Harvard-Harris.
65 percent of voters believe there is a significant amount of fake news in the mainstream media, and the sentiment is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats reflected this distrust of the media.
84 percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.
The Harvard-Harris online survey of 2,006 registered voters was conducted between May 17 and May 20.
On "The Fox News Specialists," Eric Bolling said the media had a particularly bad week last week, with The Washington Post and The New York Times publishing negative stories about President Trump that proved to be "duds."
"Two publications that people really rely on to have real news and real researched news and journalistic standards blew it last week badly," Bolling said.
Rob O'Neill lamented that the media has forgotten the importance of honesty, and too many journalists are now reporting on what's going to advance their personal agendas.
Bolling agreed, and added that many of these anti-Trump stories cite unnamed sources.
"They're undermining their own credibility," Bolling said. "If you have a source, name your source. Or don't run with it."
