Majority of voters believe ‘mainstream media’ is ‘threat to democracy’: Poll

Most voters believe “the mainstream media” is a threat to democracy, according to the latest New York Times/Siena poll.

Voters were asked whether they believe “American democracy is currently under threat” or the opposite. Then voters who responded in the affirmative were asked where the blame lies.

Seventy-one percent of voters told pollsters they think democracy is in danger. Of those respondents, 84 percent said the mainstream media is contributing to the political system’s peril.
