The Washington Examiner reports almost three-quarters of Americans believe the news media reports with an intentional bias, according to the 2015 State of the First Amendment Survey, conducted by the First Amendment Center and USA Today
The survey was released Friday. It shows that only 24 percent of American adults agree with the statement that "overall, the news media tries to report the news without bias," while 70 percent disagree. That’s a record low since the question was first asked a decade ago. When the question was asked last year, 41 percent agreed the news tried to report without bias, a 17-point difference.
