ㅤ"The poll of nearly 4,000 adults shows that 92 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents ‘say that traditional news outlets knowingly report false or misleading stories at least sometimes,’ a finding in line with other recent polls conducted by Pew Research and Gallup.
ㅤIt found the sentiment extends to those who identify as independents and Democrats, with 79 percent of independents also saying traditional outlets knowingly report false or misleading stories at least sometimes. Democrats agree by a slight majority of 53 percent.
ㅤThe poll also found that almost two-thirds of those polled say fake news ‘is usually reported because people have an agenda.’ About one-third of those polled say false information is reported because of ‘poor fact-checking’ or laziness."ㅤ
