“A new national poll finds most of the people surveyed think the media helped get President Obama elected,” FNC's Bret Baier noted in his Thursday night Grapevine segment in highlighting a September 8-11 national survey of 800 Americans by Sacred Heart University
which discovered “a large majority, 89.3%, suggested the national media played a very or somewhat strong role in helping to elect President Obama.” (Noel Sheppard's earlier item on the survey's finding: “Almost 90% of Americans Think Media Helped Get Obama Elected.”)
Baier related how the university in Fairfield, Connecticut also determined “almost 70 percent think the 'media are intent on promoting' his presidency and 56 percent say the 'media are promoting his health care reform agenda without objective criticism.'”
...and when Mr. Obama fails, much like Mr. Carter did in the late 1970's it will hurt Major Media in a huge way. Already many people outside the DC Beltway/NY, LA areas don't really trust journalist to report the news with any objectivity at all. Editorialization belongs on the editorial page, not in news stories.
