Poll: Americans Believe Reporters Push Liberal Agenda

For all those reporters out there pretending they're not putting a liberal spin in their coverage, the American public is on to you.

From Rasmussen Reports:
Voters still think most reporters are politically biased and tend to view them as more liberal than they are.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that most reporters, when covering a politician campaign, try to help the candidate they want to win. Only 21% think most reporters put the emphasis instead on trying to offer unbiased coverage. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.

A plurality (46%) of voters continues to feel that the average reporter is more liberal than they are. Eighteen percent (18%) say the average reporter is more conservative than they are, while 22% think their views are about the same. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.
