Nearly half of voters surveyed in a new poll think the media make up stories about President Trump and his administration.
A Politico/Morning Consult poll finds 46 percent of voters think the media fabricate reports about Trump and his administration.
Only 37 percent of voters disagree and another 17 percent are undecided, according to the poll.
The percentage of Republican voters who think the media make up stories about Trump is even higher.
Seventy-six percent of Republicans think the media fabricate stories about Trump and his administration. About 20 percent of Democrats think the media make up stories, but 65 percent of Democrats disagree.
And there lies the problem.
What good is a free and open media if people have been conditioned to believe they are posting fake news stories designed to hurt their leader?
I used to really think that more access to more media outlets would only better reveal the truth.
Boy was I naive.
