You know looking at that poll again and seeing how so many Republicans think that the news is detrimental to the US, I can't help but think that they're right but for the wrong reason. Now let's not kid ourselves here these Republicans more than likely buy into the myth that the media has a "liberal bias" so that's why it's detrimental to our country, but that's wrong because the media doesn't have a liberal bias but a sensationalist bias. The news media we have today is not about educating the public on policies and wether or not they help the people or not, it's about ratings and keeping people glued to their television sets.
 
Oh and an establishment bias
