More folks than ever before say Big Media is inaccurate, biased

Nearly two-thirds _ 63 percent _ of Americans surveyed by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press believe that news stories are often inaccurate. That's a flip from when Pew first asked that question in 1985, when 34 percent of respondents believed stories were frequently inaccurate.

Pew also found that 74 percent of respondents believe stories tend to favor one side of an issue over another, up from 66 percent two years ago.

Those trends tend to go hand in hand, said Andrew Kohut, the Pew center's director.

"If people believe that news reports are often biased, they will say they're inaccurate," he said.

In other words, mere perception of bias leads to a belief in inaccuracy as well.

The Big Media should pay attention to this and understand the almost-certain commercially-deadly consequences of being biased.

And the People are much, much more than ever able to detect bias these days.
