More than ever, polling suggests that struggling newspapers and television networks hoping to woo viewers might want to rethink their biased politics. The latest evidence comes from a Suffolk University/USA Today poll showing an overwhelming majority of Americans believe mainstream media is biased in favor of Democratic Party presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.

Media outlets beware of audience

Even as television networks, Cable News Network (CNN) and most major newspapers across the country are criticized for skewing left, their editors, producers and publishers continue to toe the Democratic Party line.

Most recently it was discovered that DNC head Donna Brazile slipped questions (used in debates) to Hillary Clinton while working as a political prognosticator for CNN. The Atlanta-based news organization eventually fired Al Gore’s former campaign chairman but not before reputational damage was done.

Even Democrats see bias

What is most notable about the poll is a significant increase in the number of viewers who believe America’s mainstream media outlets are in the tank for Democrats. With an incredible 75% of those polled saying media is biased for Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections, liberal editors and producers may be undermining their networks' integrity more than ever before.

A paltry 7% of those polled said the media preferred Donald Trump.

Polling question is simple

The polling question is rather simple: “Who do you think the media, including major newspapers and TV stations, would like to see elected president, Hillary Clinton orDonald Trump?”The answer was just as clear across the board between Democrats, Independents and Republicans as 74% of Democrats also perceive mainstream media as biased for Clinton.When asked about the Clinton camp’s accusations that Russian hackers are interfering in the 2016 election, only 10% agreed.

A much larger 45% say news media is a larger threat to free and fair elections.

Polls suggest bias is old-school

The poll's results suggest that mainstream media's slanted distribution of news and opinion by a handful television networks and reworked stories sourced from the New York Times no longer cuts it.

Meanwhile, citizen journalism is exploding across the Internet.
