President of NARAL Ilyse Hogue took to Glamour magazine on April 23 to tell corporate America, “women’s advancement should be top of mind for companies right now,” calling standing up for reproductive freedom one “critical aspect” that is overlooked. Because if there's one thing America needs more of right now, it's divisive politics.
Fifty-three percent of voters believe political corruption is a crisis in the United States, while another 36% believe it is a significant problem but not a crisis. That's consistent with other ScottRasmussen.com polling data showing that 87% of voters nationwide believe corruption is widespread in the federal government. Solid majorities believe there is also corruption in state (70%) and local (57%) government
The Hollywood Reporter performed a poll on the news media, and the finding is still unexpected and shocking to some. The headline was “Americans Think All Network News Channels Lean Liberal, Poll Finds.” Common sense has won. Can we dispose with the ridiculous fiction that the network news product is objective, strictly balanced, and nonpartisan?
Financing your own poll apparently means never having to say you’re sorry for the results -- especially when that TV channel’s news division simply chooses to ignore whatever findings go against the network’s bias. That was apparently the case late last week, when anchors for CBS News focused on the result that 77 percent of those polled think the entire Mueller report should be released to the public. However, 54 percent of those surveyed believed the investigation was politically motivated against President Trump, as opposed to the findings in January, when half of those surveyed then believed the effort was justified.
On Tuesday night, CNN host Anderson Cooper pushed a new poll from Quinnipiac University that asked respondents if they believed President Donald Trump had committed crimes before he became president, and if he had committed crimes after he became president.
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd highlighted a stunning finding from the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that 99 percent of CNN viewers believe President Trump has been lying about the Russia investigation. In other words, the cable channel’s biased coverage has been so complete that nearly all of its audience has decided that Trump has lied when denying Russian collusion.
In the midst of CNN’s Tuesday Town Hall with prospective independent presidential candidate and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, moderator Poppy seemed to get a bit annoyed at her guest when he appeared unwilling to “commit” to dropping out of the race in the event he would spoil the election for Democrats in the fall of 2020.
Seemingly following the example set by his fellow CNN hosts, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, host Anderson Cooper ended Thursday’s edition of AC360 by venting his nonsensical anger at a fundraising e-mail sent by the Trump campaign. The e-mail, meant to drive engagement with Trump supporters, led people to the “Official State of the Union Approval Poll” and the answers for the parody poll have had CNN liberals in a tailspin.
Like a lot of the rest of the liberal media, Univision has clearly chosen to weaponize its fact-checking operation as part of its anti-Trump arsenal. On the evening of the President’s State of the Union Address, for example, the network’s heralded “Lie Detector” not only badly misfired against Trump, but also completely failed to catch a major fib told during the Democrats’ Spanish-language counter-message, which was delivered by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
CNN political director David Chalian reprised his State of the Union analysis from 2018 by, once again, discrediting CNN’s own poll numbers showing an overwhelmingly positive response to President Trump’s Tuesday address.“So I just want to stress here, for a State of the Union address, the President's partisans, his supporters tend to turn out to watch the speech. This is true of a president of either party,” he warned viewers after also noting the poll was only of people who actually watched the speech.
As far-left film maker Michael Moore made guest appearances this past week, on two occasions he spread provably false information as he wrongly claimed that a Fox News poll found that 70 percent of Americans support raising the top marginal tax rate to 70 percent as advocated by New York Democratic Congresswoman and self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And, appearing on Friday's The Last Word on MSNBC, he declared that he wished she could be the next Democratic presidential nominee.
Several days after the poll’s initial release and following repeated Twitter prodding on the subject by the President himself, the nation’s top two Spanish-language television networks finally got around to reporting on the big jump in job approval for Trump among Hispanics.
