Which media are we talking to now?
From the National Review:The media are getting increasingly polarized, as the new media landscape has produced a more partisan, less democratic media landscape, and it’s becoming harder for the media to get its message across.
According to a new report by The Media Trust, the American media have become more partisan in 2016 than in any year since 1991.
The study found that the two major political parties have seen a 50 percent rise in partisan bias in the U.S. media.
In 2016, nearly 50 percent of all TV news programs were “partisan,” according to the study, which found that political bias has increased from 51 percent in 2010 to 53 percent in 2016.
The study also found that Democrats have become the more partisan group in news outlets, and Republicans the less so.
In 2016, a whopping 71 percent of news programs focused on a Democrat, compared to just 28 percent in 2015.
